snow-clad Himalayan giants. Monsoons breathe a new life into the valley, which morphs into an expansive quilt of blossoming flowers.

    Travel to Nirvana is best for valley of flower

    The trek was awesome. My favourite was day 3. This is the day and the very reason that I loved this trek. The entire high altitude Valley Of Flowers was trekked. Starting day to beautiful nature, and then having the day filled with a wholesome breakfast was a bright start.
