Nestled high in the West Himalaya,India’s valley of flowers national park is renowned for its meadow of endemic alpine flowers and outstanding natural beauty. This richly diverse area is also home to rare and endangered animals, including the Asiatic clack 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, inscribed on the world heritage list in 1988. 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.

Smythe and Mr. R L Holdsworth on 9th July 1931, when they reached here after a successful expedition of Mount Kamet. Drawn by the irresistible lure of the place Smythe revisited in 1937. In 1938 he published a book “The Valley of Flowers” celebration the beauty of this extra ordinary Valley.
