News for Valley of Flowers reopening in 2014

Valley of Flowers was closed after the floods in June, 2013. Ghangaria became accessible in 2013 itself but the valley remained inaccessible as 2.6 km trek was washed off in flood. Generally Public works department of state of Uttarakhand was responsible for the maintenance of trek but the damage was so large that the trek could not have been made from the same route. The new trek has to be rerouted and the land belongs to forest department. The construction work could not be started till early September, 2014 as the forest department did not get any grant from Government of India.

We were in constant touch with PWD officials till May, 2014 and they were assuring that the valley will open by June this year but after a joint survey by PWD and forest officials along with District Magistrate, Chamoli District in first week of June it was decided that the trek will be laid by forest department only. Forest department got the budget only in first week of September. The construction of the new trek was given on contract to locals and they did a great job in completing the total work in just 20 days.

We are still awaiting the latest pictures of the newly constructed trek from our connections in Ghangaria. The new trek is almost one km longer than the old trek and bit tougher also as you need to climb more and come down again to reach the heaven.

Bridge over Alaknanda at Govindghat has also been constructed. This is a motor-able bridge authorities are constructing road from Govindghat to Pula, it will reduce the total trek from Govindghat to Ghangaria by 3 km once the road is completed.

Bridge at Govindgha on Alaknanda Construction completed in early September.

  7. Tapasya says:

    Hey, I just wanted to clear my confusion, it says trek to Valley of Flowers from 19 to 25 July will remain closed. So is it just your travelling company that won’t take a trip or will the park remain closed at that time?

    • Devkant Sangwan says:

      Hello Mam,
      If “closed” is written in front of a departure it means all the spaces are full in that departure.

    Hi,
    I am planning to visit Valley of Flowers in Aug Starting. I have a few questions. I will be glad if you help me.

    1) Options of Shared Taxi/Bus transport from Rishikesh? Its departure & arrival timings? Whether any advance booking required or from where to book those transports? I will reach Rishikes one day before.
    2) Give me some advice about precautions to be taken to deal with sudden Landslides & availability of ATMs in those areas.
    3) Should I carry Rain Coats? Please advise me too about how much winter wears should I take.
    4) Any key advice that I should know.

    • Devkant Sangwan says:

      Hi,
      Please visit our FAQ page. Shared Sumo is available at Rishikesh Gurudwara. They start early in the morning. Advance booking is not required. Take enough cash from Rishikesh only, you will not get time to withdraw cash from ATM on the way. Landslides are common in the area and most of the cases they are cleared in few hours maximum. You need to wait for them to be cleared by BRO. Please visit as well. Things to carry for Valley of Flowers trek page

    Is October(any time between 10th oct to 20th oct) an ideal time to visit Valley of Flowers ?

      Hello Sir,
      It will not be a good time as snowfall starts in the month of October and the Valley is closed for general public. 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.

    • Devkant Sangwan says:

      Valley of Flowers will open on June 1st, 2015. So there is no question of doing it at the end of May. There will be very less number of flowers in Valley of Flowers and you will see the last 3 km to trek to Hemkund Sahib full of snow. The decision is to be taken by you whether you want to see flowers or snow. For a budget travel you can take public transport and follow our itinerary. You may get rooms at Ghangaria after reaching there as well. If you want to book it in advance we can also help you. You can contact us on our phone number also.
