Nanda Devi National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and amongst the highest altitude parks in India with exceptionally beautiful Western Himalayan landscapes.

The national park is named after the Nanda Devi peak, which is the second-highest peak in India and is a part of the Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve, home to outstanding biodiversity. Nanda Devi National Park, along with the Valley of Flowers, encompasses a unique transition zone between the mountain ranges of the Zanskar and Great Himalaya. Apart from some community-based ecotourism to small portions of the park, there has been no other activity here. This area, therefore, acts as a control site for the maintenance of natural processes and is of high significance for long-term ecological monitoring in the Himalayas.

The rugged, inaccessible, high mountain wilderness of Nanda Devi National Park is a spectacular one should not miss.
