The Nanda Devi and Valley of Flowers National Parks are one of the most spectacular wilderness areas located in India’s Uttarakhand province in the western Himalayas.
It is renowned for its meadows of endemic alpine flowers and outstanding natural beauty. This richly diverse area is also home to rare and endangered animals, including the Asiatic black bear, snow leopard, brown bear and blue sheep. This gentle landscape complements Flowers National Park and the rugged mountain wilderness of Nanda Devi National Park. 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.
