Rishikesh to Valley of flowers & Hemkund Sahib:-

The distance between Rishikesh to Joshimath is 250 km. From Joshimath onward, the table for valley of flowers is shown below:

          Govind Ghat, which is 270 km from Rishikesh and 20 km from Joshimath, is the motor head for the Valley of Flowers. At Govind Ghat  porters and ponies are available for the 15 km trek to Ghangria.  The trek begins after crossing Alaknanda by a bridge and then along a mountain path on the right bank of Laxman ganga. The trek passes through dense vegetation and whispering forests and Laxmanganga always appears to be hurrying down to meet Alaknanda down below. Then at 10th km is the Bhyundar village from where a beautiful valley branches  to Kagbhushandi. The trek to Valley of Flowers continues along the Laxman Ganga and at 3km from the village, Laxmanganga has to be crossed and then begins the final zig zag climb to Ghangria. Ghangria, nestled amidst the giant deodars, is the halting place for travellers to both Hemkund Sahib and the Valley of Flowers. Camping in the valley is not permitted, visitors have to spend the nights at Ghangria only. As the path from Ghangaria gradually ascends to the Valley of Flowers, glaciers, snow bridges, alpine flowers and wildlife begin to appear  along this 4 km trek. At 4 km, one only touches the valley and the colourful patterns lie ahead up to a distance of 10 kms.
