Will Valley of Flowers open in 2014? When does Valley of Flowers open ?

Will Valley of flowers open in 2014 ? What is the current Position of the Valley of flowers? Is the bridge near Ghangaria constructed to enter the valley of flowers?

This post is necessary to answer the questions of many people who want to come to valley of flowers in 2014 but saw a post on Times of India. This post stated that the Valley of Flowers may not open in 2014 at all. This is very unfortunate that one of the leading news paper is writing this type of wrong news. I could not go to Valley of Flowers personally this season till date, but I sent one of my associates to click pictures of the work done by the authorities in the area. The progress is discussed as follows.

Progress of work between Govindghat and Ghangaria.

They have done a lot of work between Govindghat and Ghangaria and in fact the current trek condition is better than the condition before the floods. They have constructed new bridges at various locations. They have constructed new bridge at Govindghat and another bridge is under construction and this bridge will be motor-able. They also have constructed a new bridge at Bhyuandar Village. Another bridge is under construction at Bhyuandar village, in case the older bridge is not able to stand the river. So there are three bridges at Bhyandar now. Pictures of these bridges along with trek are given below.

Position of the Valley of flowers? Will the Valley of Flowers open in 2014

Now the question is what is the position of the bridge which is required near Ghangaria Village to enter the valley? In fact the Times of India says that the Valley of Flowers will not open as there is no bridge. The authenticated news is that the bridge is already under construction and unfortunately the pictures of the same could not be taken by my associate. But that bridge will be constructed by June 25th as per PWD officials. Now the biggest question is about the trek after the bridge. Actually some 1.5 km trek has to be laid after the trek by forest department. As per my sources that trek will also be completed latest by July 10th, and the Valley of Flowers will be opened for general public after that.

  3. Even the Hindustan Times has that news, I was just about to cancel my plan to visit VOF in August 2014, I guess It’s opened and would be good to go.

    • Unfortunately due to bureaucracy in India the work started very late from 2nd week of September 2014 but was completed very fast by locals. It is opened to public for 6 days from 4th October, 2014.

  4. Hi Dev,

    We are planning trek in first week of October. Will we get chance to see flowers at that time and is it right time to go?

    Thanks,
    Arti

    • To see flowers October is not a good time to go, you will see seeds and not flowers. It is autumn season for valley of flowers.

  5. Devkant sir plz update the condition of the bridges as of august. I had a chat with the DFO of the VOF and he said that there was still some work left and was ambiguous as to when the work would be completed. Could shed some more light on it?
    thanks
