remote western hills of Uttarkashi district. The 6252 m high snow clad Swargarohini Mountain dominates the valley followed by Banderpunch and Kalanag. Also famed as the Valley of Flowers in the Indian Himalaya, the Valley of Gods flaunts panoramic vistas of its flora and fauna riches, as it forms a part of the Govind wildlife sanctuary and national park of Uttarkashi. The remote Himalayan valley rests with all its vivacious and bright offerings to be explored with compassion by the trekkers, who go ascending the gentle trails through the luxuriant oak and conifer forest and past traditional Hindu mountain villages, to the alpine meadows where mountain peaks soar above Hari-ki-dun.

This valley was unknown till a British mountaineer Frank Smith first discovered this place.

In 1931, Frank Smith wanted to scale a peak in Garhwal called Comet. While returning after successfully completing his mission he took the western pass and lost his way and reached this valley after many difficulties.

All of a sudden he came upon a sea of flowers which totally enchanted him. He put up a tent and stayed here for many days. During these days he collected 260 different species of flowers. Some seeds he took back with him. In 1937, he came back again to this valley and stayed here for a long time. Then he wrote a book called "The Valley of Flowers". Soon after this this place became world famous. Nature lovers started visiting this valley.

Millions of different flowers adorn this valley. One also finds different kinds of insects, birds and butterflies. This valley is surrounded by high mountains on three sides and is at a height of 3500 to 6,500 mts above sea level.

In 1982, this valley was named the Republic Park. Its area was fixed at 87.5 sq. kms, Some of the flowers are saxifrags, sediams, lilies, poppy, calendular, daisies, denthus, turmopsis, primula, dadiculatar, pontitala, geranium, cipro nepolysis, holly, pansy, zinnia, petunia, fox, caropsis dynthus etc.

Many small streams flow within this valley adding to its overall beauty. The high mountain peaks surrounding this valley stand guardian to this beautiful sight. The glaciers amongst this look very attractive.

After reading Frank Smith's book many foreign tourists came here. One of them was an English woman called Margaret Lague who came here in 1939. She was very fond of flowers. On the 4th of July, when she was trying to pick one of the rare flowers she slipped from a rock and fell into a chasm to her death. In her memory the tombstone on her grave reads as "My eyes will forever drink in the beauty of the mountains which gave me strength and inspiration". The tourists who visit this valley never fail to visit her grave and pay homage.
