Uttarakhand Tourism

Uttarakhand is the land of dense forests, icy white glaciers, clear gurgling streams and towering mountains, beautiful hill stations; a land which has been known as 'Dev Bhoomi.' Two contiguous areas - Garhwal and Kumaon - comprise Uttaranchal, and right across this stretch are hundreds of temples, shrines, and ashrams. Devout Hindus believe that these hills are the abode of the gods, and that visits to the shrines here will bring salvation.

And for the not-so-devout, in this lovely state of Uttarakhand there are mountains to climb, rivers to ford, deodar forests to explore and trails to trek. Make your way up to tiny villages in Uttarakhand hidden away in misty hills, wend your way through a rhododendron forest ablaze with red blossoms, or just sit under a tree and watch the sun go down in a burst of colour. It doesn’t get lovelier than this!
