This trek is located in Garhwali Himalayas with an altitude of 3858 meters above sea level. It is known for its beauty and versatile flowers as it is good place for the trekkers who are going to begin their trek. In 1931, Frank Smith wanted to access a peak in Garhwal called Comet but during returning he took the western pass and lost his way and reached this valley after many difficulties. Suddenly he came upon a sea of flowers which completely amazed him. He put up a tent and stayed there for some days. During this time he collected more than 200 different species of flowers. He took back some seeds and came back in 1937 and stayed here for a long time. This long journey inspired him so much that he written a book on it and it was the day when this place became famous. After his book, the place became popular in less time, several tourists started coming here. Beside the beautiful and marvelous flowers, this place also has different kind of birds and butterflies; it is totally surrounded by high mountains on its three sides.
