    Great Place.But you have to struggle to trek.You to trek around 6 km,so better be prepared for that.Once you reach the place,its heaven.August -September best time to visit.If you want to see the glacier at the end of the valley,start early and take help of the guide there. Absolutely loved the trip to here.

    I went there in mid July. It's heavenly to be honest and I loved it. Be prepared for the moderately tough trek to reach there.

    This place is literally a "God's own garden". Hundreds of thousands of exotic & unique flowers are spread in this magic world along pushpavathi river. Flower Park changes its color several times within a span of 3 months during its full bloom period. Brahma Kamala can also be spotted on the way to VOF. Only caution is one must be prepared for altitude sickness & frequent weather changes atop the mountain.
