Since you aren't permitted to stay the night in the Park, Ghangaria will be your best option. It has a Forest Rest House with clean rooms and all the basic amenities. You can book at the Garhwal Mandal Vikas Nigam (GMVN) website.

Piyush Khinvasara Do you know of any other good stays close to the market?

Pin Parvati was my first 5000 m climb. Although I was mentally prepared for the distance I'd be covering, I was quite nervous about it despite my preparations.
4 months prior, I started carrying my backpack (almost 12kgs) around an uphill route to strengthen my back. Along with a few 7km runs, climbing stairs and strength training, I worked towards building my endurance.
The trek was a tough one, but I was quite happy with how this paid off. I hope this helps whoever it may concern! :)

As we trailed through the Valley of Flowers, our guide led us to the Khunth Khal ridge. He showed us a rare Himalayan flower found in the park, the Brahma Kamal. The flower has been declared endangered, even so it has a blooming presence on the ridge. If you are here in the monsoon, do not miss this beautiful sight!

Arun James Also the state flower of Uttarakhand btw :)

We did a 10 day Bara Bhangal Trek, alpine style. There is no place to fill ration on the way, so our backpacks ended up weighing almost 25 kgs. We even carried some crackers with us due to possible bear attacks along the way. The weather was quite unpredictable and we had to cross some really aggressive glacial rivers. Along with that, the gaining and losing of altitude multiple times really made the trek extremely challenging.

Benjamin Thomas That's good to know since the trek does sound quite daunting. Thanks for sharing!
