The Valley of Flowers is a breathtakingly beautiful high altitude meadow of alpine flowers in the Western Himalayas. Accessible only through a trek route through the mountains, this valley is located in a transition zone that lies between the Zanskar Region of the Himalayas to the north and the Greater Himalayas to the south. Together with the Eastern and Western Himalayas on either side, this valley is endowed with some extraordinary bio diversity.
