Flowers at Dhanaulti in May, Serene Garhwal Himalayas on the way to Gangotri

Dhanaulti, a few hours ahead of Mussourie on the road to Uttarkashi is a lesser known Himalayan destination. Well hidden :) by giant deodar trees and cascading starlit skies. A change in flight schedule brought us here. Lucky us! On the way from Mussouri we spotted a few adventure camps, rhododendrons in early bloom, a beautiful ruddy grass which i mistook for buckwheat, and fields of potatoes, all caressed by the late afternoon sunlight and breeze.

The blue iris, a whole hillside of pink and white button sized daisies, and the red grass have become signature memories of Dhanaulti in May for me. Yet to go inside the Eco Park and Forest area…
