Uttarakhand Forest Department reopened the trek route near Valley of Flowers for public, after a long time of 45 years. This route is also known as The Kunthkhal-Hanuman Chatti trek route, being non-human ingress for 45 years this virgin trail has lots of unexplored nature beauty.

As per TOI, Director of Nanda Devi Biosphere, SS  Rasaily told, "The Kunthkhal-Hanuman Chatti trek  route was lying closed since 1970 as people began opting for the much easier  route from Ghanghariya to approach the valley. Because it was lying  unused, the trek trail soon became overgrown with dense vegetation. During the  recent disaster, a need was felt for an alternate route which could be used to  evict people. This route is suitable for this purpose."
