The best time to do the Valley of Flowers trek is between mid-July and mid-September. This is when you see the flowers at their best. It’s monsoon season in India, it also rains a bit on the trek. But the rain is what makes the flowers bloom. So time your trek in these months to see the best of the flowers. 🙂

Nestled high in West Himalaya, India’s Valley of Flowers National Park is renowned for its meadows of endemic alpine flowers and outstanding natural beauty. This richly diverse area is also home to rare and endangered animals, including the Asiatic black bear, snow leopard, brown bear and blue sheep. The gentle landscape of the Valley of Flowers National Park complements the rugged mountain wilderness of Nanda Devi National Park. Together they encompass a unique transition zone between the mountain ranges of the Zanskar and Great Himalaya, praised by mountaineers and botanists for over a century and in Hindu mythology for much longer.
