Valley of flowers !!!!!!

It was in 1931 that Frank Smythe and Holdsworth stumbled on the valley while returning from their succesful Kamet expedition. They were “at once transported from a region of solemn austerity to a fairy land of dainty flowers most of them dwarf, but brilliant in colours, this park spread over an area of 87.5 sq.kms has the largest collection of wild flower spieces.

.
As though created by nature itself, the beauty of the park is enhanced by the Pushpawati River flowing in the vicinity overlooked by towering Rataban Peak in the back ground. More than 300 species of wild flowers bloom and swing with life during the monsoons. Also inhabitants the place is an amazing variety of Himalayan Butterflies. Hidden from the probing eyes of civilization, this valley had been known to the inhabitants as the Bhyundar Valley, the playground of fairies and nymphs. Legends also associate this valley with the area from where Hanumanji of Ramayana collected “Sanjivani Booti” herbs to revive Lakshmana, the younger brother of Lord Rama. They valley can only be visited during the day and overnight stay is prohibited.
