Valley of Flowers:
The valley of flowers changes its colors almost every day as it blooms with hundreds of different flowers, taking on various shades as time progresses. The valley was declared a National Park in 1982 and now is a World Heritage Site. It was believed by the locals that the valley of flowers was inhabited by fairies.
The valley is home to many celebrated flowers like the brahmakamal, the blue poppy, and the cobra lily. It is a much sought after haunt for flower-lovers, botanists, and trekkers.
The Discovery of Valley of Flowers:
Valley of flowers was discovered in the year 1931, when Frank S. Smythe, a British mountaineer along with six other British mountaineers lost their way while descending from Mount Kamet, at 25,447 feet, situated in Garhwal Himalayas. Below 16,000 feet there was heavy rainfall and dense mist surrounded the mountain side. They paused, uncertain to the route. Suddenly R. L. Holdsworth, a botanist as well as a climbing member of the expedition exclaimed “Look”, Frank S. Smythe followed the direction of his outstretched hand. At first, he could see nothing but rocks, then suddenly his wandering gaze was arrested by a little splash of blue, and beyond it were other splashes of blue, a blue so intense it seemed to light the hillside. You can see such bluish shade ofValley of Flowers even today especially in July month.
