If mother nature has ever smiled on earth, it must have been in Chamoli – that enchanting land in the arms of the Himalayas. During the monsoons, a thousand blooms burst forth in all brilliance in the fascinating “Valley Of Flowers”. With an amazing wealth of flora set aglow with the golden rays of the sun, Chamoli is one place that reverberates with spirituality and has a strong association with a number of Hindu religious myths and legends.
While the stress and pressures, of the jet-age catch up with every city-dweller, Chamoli calls you to a wonderful re-discovery of your roots. Untouched by the pollution and rigmarole of urban life, Chamoli waits to open vistas of nature in their pristine glory. A visit to this place will leave an unforgettable imprint on the visitor’s mind.
