Best time to visit Valley of Flowers is July/August 2018.
Visited in July 2018 and the valley was in full bloom.
Total trek of 12km one way(total of 24kms)-no ponies.the trek though difficult is doable & worthwhile & you don't feel it as you are walking through flower filled meadows.

Date of experience: July 2018

For all the nature lover, I recommend you to visit this place as you have never this sort of raw beauty anywhere else in India, I went this year in the first week of June, the park is open only in summer and closes in October, so plan accordingly. The motorized vehicles are stopped at Govindghat from there on you have to travel on the mule to reach Ghangaria which is around 11 Km from Govindghat. Ghangharia is a small settlement which is 3km away from Valley of flower. Next day we started our trek. You can also hire a Porter during the trek and don't forget to car raincoat as the whether is very uncertain.

Thanks for your review. Flowers bloom everywhere in a riot of colors. On one side of the flower-decked valley tall cliffs climb to the sky. The other side is guarded by snow-clad mountains.

I did a lot of reading prior planning the trip, however none of the websites mentioned about the rip off one can encounter when you reach Govindghat. We parked our car at the parking lot and hired a jeep to take us up to the place where one starts the trek. The parking lot attendant asked us if we would like a pony to carry our luggage while we did the trek. We later found that we could get a pony for 700 Rupees while he charged us 1600 rupees.
Once the jeep drops you off, one has to pass rows and rows of ponies , the place reeks of urine and there is pony dung all over the place, it’s actually nauseating.
If you are going to do the trek up to ghangria on foot be prepared to endure the nightmare.
I would think that it would be sensible to have an area where the ponies are kept And the they can be brought as and when required by people rather than have them on the route.
The local government should certainly look into this.
There are people hired to clean the route but they harass you for money rather than do the cleaning. Even at Ghangria one has to deal with pony dung all over the place.
Thankfully on the trek from ghangria to valley of flowers this nightmare is avoided.

Hi,
We understand the problem you faced. The prices of ponies are highly negotiable and some time you cant even get in Rs. 2000. But its true that the nature is at its best here.
