The snow at the Himalayas provides majesty to the mountains and the innumerable flower patches of vivid colorings add to its beauty. When the solar shines hot in this field, heaps of plants bloom here. This valley turned into unknown until a British mountaineer Frank Smythe first observed this place. In 1931, Smythe wanted to scale a top in Garhwal referred to as Kamet. While returning after efficiently finishing his mission, he took the western skip and lost his way and reached this valley after many difficulties. Thus, became born the Valley Of Flowers Trek.
