Itinerary

Around 7 am, assemble at Haridwar Railway Station. Now, begins a long distance uphill drive from Haridwar to Govindghat. On the way, passing through Devaprayag you can witness the holy confluence of Bhagirathi and Alaknanda Rivers from the River Ganges. Arrival at Joshimath, a midpoint for other religious pilgrimage locations. You could stay over here or proceed to Govindghat in lieu of time for the halt.
In the morning after breakfast trekking start for The Valley Of Flowers in Uttaranchal with a short 14 km gradual ascend from Govindghat to Ghangaria. After Arriving at Ghangaria you can prefer Hotel check-in or camp out. Here you can explore the surrounding and have dinner in the shade of the dark night.
After scaling a height of 3,858 m you arrive at The Valley Of Flowers. This day marks the very reason for your entire high altitude Valley Of Flowers trek. Now start your day with a wholesome breakfast. (Admire one of nature’s finest creations as you are left speechless witnessing an array of thousands of flowers in full bloom. The myriad palette with a multitude of colour shades rests against the watchful eyes of the mighty Himalayas. Creating an alluring canvas, the valley has several streams casually meandering through it. The wild flora creates a rich Eco-system for many species of birds, butterflies, and insects too. Several soulful moments later begin your return trek to Ghangaria. Dinner and overnight stay at the hotel/ camp.)
After breakfast, following a steep trail to Hemkund Sahib you will reach a religious site where Guru Gobind Singh is said to have meditated in his previous life. This place is no doubt soothing and calming as it is surrounded by seven snow-capped mountains. Spend your time here and after lunch, start a late afternoon trek back to Ghangaria. Dinner and overnight stay at the hotel/ camp.
After breakfast, take the same trek route from Ghangaria to Govindghat. If you desire to explore more then you can tour Auli in the evening.
