Valley of Flowers is a monsoon trek and the drive to Govind Ghat itself offers breathtaking rain-washed landscape as the swollen Alaknanda accompanies you. It is a pleasant walk among pilgrims (young and old alike who are heading to Hemkund Sahib) through lush greenery, streams and hill side hamlets. This Valley is a botanists delight. The entire valley is generally a carpet of colours – green, yellow, red, blue. The flowering pattern of the valley apparently changes every few days.
