This richly diverse area is also home to rare and endangered animals, including the Asiatic Black bear, snow leopard, brown bear and blue sheep.

Together they encompass a unique transition zone between the mountain ranges of Zanskar and great Himalaya, praised by mountaineers and botanist for over a century and in Hindu Mythology for much longer.
The “Valley of Flowers” or “phoolon ki ghati” as it’s known in Hindi is a sight to behold. Situated in Bhyunder Valley, trekkers can see more than 300 varieties of wild plants, herbs and flowers.
