Valley of flowers is a national park and world heritage site in India and is famous for its wild flowers. It was discovered by Frank Smythe, Holdsworth & Shipton while returning from one of their mountaineering expeditions. This happened in 1931 and to this very day this valley continues to attract trekkers, naturalists, botanists, nature lovers and mountaineers.
The Pushpawati River flows through the valley and is the major source of moisture. The soil here does not hold a lot of water and hence the flowers bloom immediately after the first rains. The valley is a riot of colors by mid-August with balsam, anemones, blue poppy, brahma kamals, primulas, asters etc occupying the valley floor. There are certain carnivorous species as well who get their source of nutrition from the insects, but these can only be identified by a keen observer. For a nature lover, this valley opens brilliant vistas and panoramic views. It is an enthralling site to walk amongst a path laid out between flowers.
