Sunflower, Auli. The Himalayan mountains are lush and green all around even up to altitudes of 5000 m (16,000+ feet). There's a huge variety of plants and flowers, most of them known varieties. I took a few photos of flowers over the span from Auli to Rishikesh on the way down from the mountains, and I have grouped them all here in one place.
