How to reach Valley of flowers from New Delhi:-

Reaching Valley of flowers from Delhi requires 7 days and 6 nights in total and we can divide it into following segments.

Reaching from New Delhi to Haridwar:

Distance 200 kilometers.

You can reach Haridwar from New Delhi by road or by train. Air-conditioned Volvo buses are available from New Delhi to Haridwar. You can take bus from Anand Vihar Inter State Bus Terminus at New Delhi. If you are not so particular about Air-conditioned bus then you may get a bus every ten minutes from New Delhi. It takes almost 5-6 hours from New Delhi to Haridwar by bus.

The second option is you hire a taxi from New Delhi to Haridwar. It is a bit costly affair as they charge both ways for dropping only. But if you 3-4 people minimum this is also a good idea.

The last option is going by train. If you are starting from New Delhi you can get a train easily from New Delhi but bookings are to be done well in Advance. You can check train availability from New Delhi to Haridwar by clicking here. But if you are coming from other parts of India kindly try to book your tickets for a direct train to Haridwar only.

You should reach Haridwar by evening as you need to start early (not later than 5.30 AM) the next day for the trip. Train is the best option but if you did not have train reservation you can go in for air-conditioned Volvo bus.

Haridwar to Valley of flowers

Reaching from Haridwar to Govindghat.

Distance 300 kilometers.

This is the day when you have option of going by road only. The whole day you will be traveling along Alaknanda River and the whole journey will be in hills. So take a tablet for vomiting if you are prone to that. Public transport is not so good in this region and since you need to travel for at least 10-12 hrs by road you need to have a comfortable vehicle. Hiring a vehicle from Haridwar is a good idea and they charge for the whole trip of 6 days. Getting dropped and sending them back is not a good idea as while coming back it would be difficult to get a taxi from Govindghat or Badrinath.

The best idea is to go in for an organized trip by a professional organizer or hire a taxi for the trip. (You can contact us for any of the need). Reach Govindghat by evening. And prepare yourself for tomorrow’s trek. Sleep early and divide your luggage in to two parts. You can leave some luggage at Govindghat which you dont need at Ghangaria.

How to reach from Govindghat to Ghangaria.

Total Distance 14 kilometers.

The motor-able road ends at Govindghat. Ghangaria is the common base camp for trek to Valley of flowers and Hemkund Sahib. It is a small village where there are some basic hotels. In 2012 the electricity reached this village and now you can expect some electric charging facility for your camera cells in Ghangaria.

Govindghat




From Govindghat you have got four options to reach Ghangaria. They are:-

  • By trekking
  • By pony.
  • By porter/porters.
  • By Helicopter.

Reaching Govindghat to Ghangaria by trekking.

To reach Ghangaria from Govindghat by trekking you should start your trek as early as possible but not later than 8:00 AM. Have a good breakfast before starting and carry fewer luggage or hire a porter. If you are hiring a porter kindly make sure to be with him all the time for your own benefit. You may need things on the way like umbrella, eatables or camera on the way. Do not put any valuable in luggage with porter. Do not be in haste to reach Ghangaria as you will more tired, just enjoy the beauty of nature and keep clicking photographs. You will reach Ghangaria by evening. Stay in a pre-booked hotel. (Contact us to book a hotel in Ghangaria). Please read our full page on
Govindghat to Ghangaria trek

Reaching Ghangaria from Govindghat by Pony.

Ponies take approximately four hours to reach Ghangaria. So can have a luxury to start by 9.00 AM from Govindghat. But we recommend you to start early and reach Ghangaria by 12.00 noon and enter Valley of flowers today only to finish the micro level photography of the first kilometer of Valley of flowers. This step will give you more time for tomorrow for valley of flowers when you will explore the deeper parts of Valley of Flowers. Valley of flowers entry closes at 2.00 PM so be there at enterance before that.

The entry ticket costs Rs. 150 for Indian nationals and Rs. 600 for foreigners. But good news is that this ticket is valid for three days, so dont need to take a ticket tomorrow. Come out of the gate before 5.00 PM.

Reaching Ghangaria from Govindghat by Porter/Porters.

If you a senior citizen or an old age person you dont want to trek for any reason and the Helicopter is not flying due to bad weather you can hire a porter or group of four porters who can carry a person. Single porter is recommended for a light weight person upto a weight of 50 kilograms. The pictures will explain the facility in a better way. Even you can hire single porter for children with you. Reach Govindghat by evening and stay in a pre-booked hotel. (Contact us to book a hotel in Ghangaria).

Reaching Ghangaria from Govindghat by Helicopter.

This is the fastest way to reach Ghangaria from Govindghat. But in the month of July and August the flying of the Helicopter is very uncertain due to bad weather. So the availability of helicopter is very uncertain. You can not plan your self accordingly. But if you can get a helicopter you can save both time and energy but you will be deprived of the beauty of nature from Govindghat to Ghangaria. We dont recommend this mode as you have come to this place for nature and not for luxury.

Now you have reached the base camp Ghangaria, for the trek to Valley of flowers.

    • Hello Sir,

      A detailed itinerary has been sent to you. For group discount you can call us on +919991142759. August will be a good month to visit Valley of Flowers as you’ll be able to see full bloom in Valley of Flowers as well in Hemkund Sahib. YES you are right monsoon will be there at that time but it’ll be worthy to go at that time as i wrote about full bloom. Advance bookings for hotels are mandatory.

      October month will not be appropriate to visit Valley of Flowers as Valley of Flowers will be snow capped again and all the plants will shed seeds and seeds will be preserved under snow to germinate again in next season when snow starts melting in May.

  79. Hi Devkant,
    If I am planning to drive from southern india, can you suggest route without touching delhi? Is nainital to joshimath/ agra to joshimath route ok?

    • You need to come to Delhi if coming to Valley of flowers. You can take direct flight to Dehradun. Both of the routes you suggested are not recommended.
