Why raiwala to rishikesh electrification is delayed by the railway's. Railway infrastructure is pathetic in uttarakhand even Dehradun rly stn is partially electrified don't know why they are not extending the platform or increasing the capacity. Any local member pliz update us of any developmental work in the most pathetic station Dehradun despite being a capital and a major tourist spot.

***** Nice Creation of almighty God in our Country*****
Valley of Flowers National Park(In Bengali it is known as Nandan Kanan) of Uttarakhand, India
Brief Description: Valley of Flowers National Park is an Indian national park, located in West Himalaya, in the state of Uttarakhand and is known for its meadows of endemic alpine flowers and the variety of flora. This richly diverse area is also home to rare and endangered animals, including the Asiatic black bear, snow leopard, musk deer, brown bear, red fox, and blue sheep. Birds found in the park
include Himalayan Monal Pheasant and other high altitude birds. At 3352 to 3658 meters above sea level, the gentle landscape of the Valley of Flowers National Park complements the rugged mountain wilderness of Nanda Devi National Park to the east. Together, they encompass a unique transition zone between the mountain ranges of the Zanskar and Great Himalaya. The park stretches over an expanse of 87.50 km² and it is about 8 km long and 2 km wide. Both parks are encompassed in the Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve (223,674 ha) which is further surrounded by a buffer zone (5,148.57 km²). This Reserve is in the UNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserves since 2004.
State: Uttarakhand, India
District: Chamoli
Nearest town: Joshimath
The Valley of Flowers is nestled in the upper expanses of Bhyundar Ganga near Joshimath in Gharwal region. The lower reaches of Bhyundar Ganga near Gobindghat are known as Bhyundar Valley. The Valley of Flowers is in the Pushpawati valley 23 km north-northwest of Nanda Devi Park, It lies between 30° 41' to 30° 48'N and 79° 33' to 79° 46'E.
The Valley is 20 km northwest of Nanda Devi National Park across the wide valley of the Bhyundar Ganga. It is one of two hanging valleys lying at the head of the Bhyundar valley, the other being the shorter Hemkund valley which runs parallel some 10 km south. It runs east-west approximately 15 km by an average of 6 km wide, in the basin of the Pushpawati river, a small tributary flowing from the Tipra glacier which descends from Gauri Parbat in the east.
The area lies on the Zanskar range of the Himalayas with the highest point in the national park being Gauri parbat at 6,719 m above sea level.

:P .. 21 n backpacking by self? solo- aekla chalo types fella ? lol
ur right .. u will be lucky will get any charging oppurtunity at all ! my advise .. carry a basic <2000Rs mobile set with 1500-1700mh battery + a portable backup .. that should last u 4-5 days.. advance sets will be next to useless
had u been in group , u could have booked a cab for 4-5 days ..... thats the best approach... but dont worry bus services are regular +plenty
