Tour Details

With the advent of monsoon rains in the Himalayas flowers bloom without restraint in the high river valleys and lofty meadows. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Valley of Flowers shakes off the burden of snow accumulated over long winter months and paints itself with vibrant colours. The serenity of the Valley of Flowers is complemented by the holy site of Hemkund Sahib with an impressive gurudwara perched on the shore of a vast high altitude lake.
