    Our beloved country is a travellers delight… … 🙂

    Don’t tell anyone how much they have to walk to get there…

    lol… but walking a lot and then watching the views is what makes people forget their pain… thats the beauty of it i guess…

    The third and fifth photos were the best in Tara’s blog, but the flower you have displayed is the bestest! The flower looks as if it has got nerves everywhere. Nice.

    I have shown this photo to my son. Who knows – if we plan to come there, we will contact you.

    HW : imagine such flowers grow wild !!!!! in our country !!!!!

    and surely you can contact me !!! especially if you are going to manali !!!!! 🙂

    Book the guesthouses of GVMN (http://www.gmvnl.com/newgmvn/). They are at all places where one needs to stop by, are pretty cheap and decent enough for the stay.

    We went by our car from delhi, did a round road trip delhi – garwal-kumaru-delhi. Amit drove himself but its not safe for non hill drivers and especially in the monsoons due to landslide n all that. Views however are breathtaking all the way along. & when u go by pricate vehicle you can stop anywhere you want so thats what I would suggest. Besides petrol there is hardly any cost. You can stock up things that are not available there etc etc. If u sure are going let me know, will give u some more tips to save and make it a comfortable trip 🙂

    Kumaun-Nainital is my native & sasural too 😀 if you didn’t know so far.

    First time here, taking the liberty to poke my nose 🙂

    If you have even slightest of plans for valley of flowers, go ahead and do it. You’ll find at least 53 species of rare flowers if you plan your travel during end of july or august first week. My timing was wrong when I went there (sometime during June) and couldn’t make it completely because of incessant rains and the inevitable avalanche. One heck of a place!! A must see for a nature lover.
