Best things to do in Uttarakhand and sightseeing in Uttarakhand

Uttarakhand, a state in northern India crossed by the Himalaya Mountains, is famous for its Hindu journeying sites. Rishikesh, a serious center for yoga study, was created renowned by the Beatles’ 1968 visit. Town hosts the evening Ganga Aarti, a religious gathering on the sacred Ganges. Jim Corbett National Park geographic region tigers and different native life. The capital of Uttarakhand is Dehradun, the biggest town within the region. Uttarakhand is also called "Devdhami" (land of god), the home of Himalaya Mountains and really a paradise on earth, blessed with magnificent glaciers , gigantic snow-clad mountains, magnificient and ecstatic peaks. Uttarakhand is a state with first National Park in India.There are twelve National Parks and life Sanctuaries covering thirteen percent of the full space of the state. The Valley of Flowers National parks and The Nanda Devi Biosphere reserve are World Heritage sites. This is one most the most beautiful tourist destination in India.

Rishikesh - Uttarakhand

This city has been a refuge for spiritual seekers long before The Beatles christened it with their visit in the 60's. Widely known as the pilgrimage town and also the 'yoga capital of the world', Rishikesh is home to myriad temples, yoga and meditation centres and a plethora of adventure activities. With an interesting backdrop of the rapid flowing Ganges river and iron-made suspension bridges (Laxman Jhula and Ram Jhula), the city has also been a popular hub for travellers and backpackers alike. When it comes to food and drinks, Rishikesh remains a strict teetotaller and a vegetarian, even though you might find with great exploratory skills, a few restaurants not adhering to the prohibition. Some great restaurants and cafes include Little Buddha Cafe where you can enjoy your meals in a treehouse-style ambience. Rishikesh provides a spectacular treat to the eyes and music to the ears during sunrise and sunset, as sadhus (priests), pilgrims and tourists all around, prepare for the routine 'Ganga Aarti' with temple bells resonating all around and innumerable diyas or small clay pot lit lamps dancing over the river Ganga to that reverberating music, as religious offerings. Rishikesh warmly welcomes thrill seekers, who can try out a number of activities such as white water rafting, bungee jumping, kayaking, zip lining, mountain biking and rappelling. The city also annually hosts the International Yoga Festival where yoga gurus, aficionados and devotees from around the globe throng the place (popularly the Parmarth Niketan Ashram) and give various lessons and lectures on yoga, meditation and spirituality.
Next morning we became ready to sail through the gusty waves of river Ganga. I had earlier an experience of rafting, but when I saw the flow of the river, I got butterflies in my stomach. After some basic training we started our rafting, at first rapid, cold water of Ganga splashed on our face, what a refreshing feeling it was. Later on we jumped out of the boat and had a fun of swimming for some time. I thought finally "Ganga main dubki lag gayi" and it swept away all my sins, to start new life.That day I realized the importance of the river Ganga on the life Indians. Originating at the Gangotri glacier, bhagirathi comes babbling through the valleys of Himalaya. At #Devaprayag, she meets her sister alaknanda and becomes the famous Ganga. Narrow riverbed of Ganga becomes wide at Rishikesh and makes herself ready for fulfilling the thirst of everyone, whoever comes on the banks. Uttarakhand is also known as Devbhumi, with full of temples, flourished with nature and very kind people aptly justifies the name. Rishikesh is one of the peaceful place in Uttarakhand, where adventure meets spirituality. Both are the divine gateways to attain peace of mind. So far I discussed the adventurous side of Rishikesh but there is other side to it. Rishikesh is also known as "World capital of Yoga". There are many ashrams, gurukuls which teaches and practices the yoga since ages. The main reason why many people across the world comes here in Rishikesh to learn the yoga. The name Rishikesh, formed from the two words "Rishika" means senses and "ish" means master so the one who master his senses is Rishikesh and that can be attained through Yoga.

Nainital - Uttarakhand

Located in the Kumaon region of Uttarakhand, Nainital is one of the most beautiful hill stations in Northern India. The stunning Nainital lake is bang in the middle of the city and offers tourists stunning sunsets and enchanting sunrises. One legend says that Nainital derives its name from the Goddess Naina, whereas another legend claims that once when the Goddess Sati was being carried by Lord Shiva, her eye fell in the area. The lovely hill station promises a rejuvenating weekend break for those who are coming from the capital city and is definitely worth a visit. Like most hill stations, Nainital has a bustling mall road, warm cafes and a very busy Tibet market. The mall road houses shops selling candles with intricate designs, wooden knick knacks and colourful woollens. Do bring back some souvenirs as keepsakes! If you have time, do visit Sattal, Naukuchiatal (for paragliding and kayaking) as well as Ranikhet for its surreal beauty. If you are looking for a quiet, carefree holiday, visit between the months of January and April. It'll be cold, but there won't be any crowd.
Situated in the serene valleys of Uttarakhand, Nainital is truly the definition of dreamland on earth. Inhabited by local kumaoni people known for their warm nature and friendly smiles, the small town of Nainital is both an incredibly safe and incredibly fun place to explore all by yourself.

we booked a taxi and boarded towards jim corbett national park .the taxi cost us 1500rs per head. we went to a number of spots before reaching corbett. first being KHURPATAL , a small hamlet and a shimmering lake , hemmed in by precipitous hills . then we wenr to SARIA TAL , a small waterfall amidst the mountain. we then went to the CORBETT MUSUEM ,choti haldwani. house of jim corbett himself converted into a place of art . souvenoirs are to be bought from here. we finally reached RAMNAGAR in 3 hours where are jeep was waiting to take us into the forests. JIM CORBETT was a whole different experience.even though we spotted nothing but a deer the aura of that place is something. listening to stories of the man eaters and hoping to spot 1(unrealistic expectation) we finished the safari . it was uneventful but worth it.

Dehradun - Uttarakhand

Dehradun is easily one of the most popular hill stations in India. Though easily accessible by all modes of transportation, taking the road would be the best way to experience this heaven. The drive will take you through dense forests on the hilly road and if you're lucky, you might even see a wild elephant or leopard pass you by. The fresh and dewy hill air will infiltrate your lungs and put you in a great mood right away. In terms of things to see, there is Robber's Cave, a river cave formation and Sahashtradhara, which is also a stunning sight of nature consisting of sulphur springs. But more than its sights, Dehradun is the perfect place for a family getaway. After all it has everything that you could need for a relaxing holiday. The town has many vintage bookshops (Natraj Publishers, The English Book Depot), college campuses with hilly backdrops, architectural marvels (such as the Forest Research Institute), alleys filled with quaint restaurants, adventure sports gear shops and forest resorts and hotels to fit every budget. Vishranti, a resort tucked away discreetly in the Sal forests of the Doon valley, deserves a special mention for its beauty and luxury. The city is a haven for foodies as Dehradun offers a lot of variety and affordability in its cuisine. Restaurants and cafes such as Doon Darbar, renowned for devour-worthy Mughlai dishes and The Buffet for its mouthwatering burgers, cutlets and coffee, are popular options.
Last day at Dehradun:Checkouts:Water Fall at Shastradhara, Tapkeshwar temple, Buddha temple , gorged on Local food , Ghanta Ghar Landmark, Last but not the least Shopping at Paltan Bazar !!! Also can visit the Rajaji National Park famous for the Tiger Reserve if time permits.

Bearing the name of a British Viceroy (Lord Lansdowne) of colonised India, the town is 260 kilometres from Delhi. Surrounded by thick oak and pine forests covered in mist, the entire journey to the town is a treat for the eyes. At 5868 feet from sea level, the town can be accessed by train or a bus from Delhi. There are a lot of local tourist attractions like the ‘Bhim Pakora’ (a rock that vibrates when touched), St. Mary's church that was built in pre-independent India, Bhullatal lake and various temples. This quiet cantonment area can be visited at any time of the year, January and February being plausible months for snowfall.

Kausani - Uttarakhand

In the last couple of years, this quiet hill station has become quite popular with tourists from across the world. Leaving behind crowded hill stations, travellers are now making their way to this retreat. Home to waterfalls, lush green meadows and stunning walking trails, there is not much to see or do besides enjoying nature in Kausani. Mahatma Gandhi stayed here for a brief period and penned down the memorable 'Gita-Anashakti Yoga' here. There is a museum dedicated to Gandhi's life here and is a must visit. So is the lovely Baijnath Temple and the waterfalls next to it. Do visit the Kausani Shawl Factory and take back shawls as souvenirs. Besides this, there is not much to shop here at Kausani. Finding a place to stay here is also a little tricky since most hotels are usually booked and there aren't too many options. If you are coming from Delhi, it should take you about 15 hours when travelling by bus. Alternatively, you can also take a train till Kathgodam and then take the bus till Kausani. Do remember that it can take about 2 to 3 hours extra depending on the conditions of the road.
Travelling in the mountains involves changing hills and ridges to get across. When we started for Kausani – many hills and valleys away from Ranikhet – we would traverse whole hills, drive down into valleys, and then rise along the slopes of a mountain again. This is how you do it in the mountains – alternate between crests and troughs. And the crest that was Kausani lifted us and presented us to some of the most brilliant peaks of the Himalayas, of which Nanda Devi and Trishul were the most prominent. The Buransh – our hotel in Kausani – was the perfect place from where we could dwell on the wonders. The modern, mountain-facing rooms had huge glass-windows that cut a portion of the Himalayas for our enjoyment. Mountain-facing rooms meant that we didn’t need to venture out to enjoy the famous sunrise in Kausani. Snuggled in our quilts, and while sipping teas, we would sit around the glass-wall and watch the bluish mounts changing colors in the sunlight. The peaks seemed to be of their own world: they jostled for space in the skies, and when the mist swooped down to hide the earth, the mountain-tops appeared hanging in the sky - as if a portion of the earth had cut itself off and had flown far above. Later, we would head out and trek, make our way through villages and groves, and amuse ourselves by leaping across slim, jumpy streams that would go on to merge and form big rivers in the Indo-Gangetic plains.

One of the best places to spend a night. Spend a night at Gandhi Anasakti Ashram (Rs.150 per room per night inclusive of breakfast) What else do you want !! The sunrise from the Ashram is marvellous. Kausani is an extremely small, calm and serene town. Visit recommended for anyone who want to get away from time & space and forget themselves amidst the vast expanse of star studded night.

Roopkund - Uttarakhand

This is a very high altitude glacial lake in the middle of the Trishul Massif in the district of Chamoli in Uttarakhand. This place is mainly known for the large number of human skeletons which are found at the end of the lake. This lake is quite shallow and small too and is a part fo the route from Nanda Jat to Homkund. The lake is also known as the 'Mystery Lake' since the reason behind the death of so many animals and people are not yet clear. It is also strange to know that they had died about 500 years ago and some of these are so well preserved in the cold conditions that you can also see flesh attached when the snow clears a bit. According to local legendary tales it is said that ones the Kind Jasdal of Kanauj went for a tour of the nanda Jat region with his queen who was known as a goddess and also the princes of Garhwal. She was also known as Nanda Devi and she gave birth to a little baby girl over here. After this ecstatic moment, she decided to show her power and sent a hailstorm downhill which is said to have killed all the living beings there and we still find their skeletons at the end of this lake.
This was the summit point. I loved the view when I reached the top!

At 2:30 am calls rang out in our camp, waking us up from slumber. Today was the day! Reluctant to get out of our sleeping bags (despite the rocky surface our tent was pitched on) we groggily made our way out. Stepping out of the tent, the sky was free of clouds, and the entire Milkyway was visible, from on end to the other! I stood transfixed, regretting not having enough photography skills to capture this sight. Sigh! But like with all good things, the clouds moved in again, and everything turned into a hazy blur, with jabs of torch light to guide us to the dining tent, where maggi and tea awaited us. We all lined up dutifully, crampons on our feet, and trudged ahead in single file. The path was pitch dark as we started, all of us relying on our torches to guide us, walking in single file. However, in half an hour or so, the sky began to lighten, and the going got easier. We passed a lot of glaciers on the way and the path became steeper.A few members fell back, not wanting to hold up the group, but moving forward nonetheless. The path was steep and our energy levels were declining. But our lovely helpers , in this case a special mention to Surinder , who kept egging us on, kept calling out to us to take " one step at a time" and his hilarious discounts on Roopkund , which got more fantastic as we got closer. Finally, eventually - we trudged to the rim of Roopkund. The sun was just beginning to rise, and everything was brilliantly highlighted! We were greeted by the small temple, and the pile of fabled human bones stacked in front of it. Not wanting to waste our flimsy lead ahead of the other groups, we descended the short way down to the lake itself. It was frozen over, and our shouts to each other echoed back to us over and over again. I just sat on a rock, catching my breath, and realising I've accomplished what I had set out to do. The crowds descended soon, and the moment was gone. We made our way up to the rim, and looked hopefully to C.T to allow us to submit the Junargali peak.The weather was clear, and we had seen a couple of other trekkers making their way up.But C.T. refused, citing safety reasons.Ironically, that didn't stop him from making the trip up there himself. This left quite a few of us in a sour mood. A steaming bowl of daliya from our guides helped to restore the mood fractionally, and everyone got busy taking pictures in the limited time we had left. Sure enough, we were gathered together in a couple of minutes and ushered back, making our descent. The way down was quite uneventful, except, of course, where Shirley and me had to make a mad dash to a rocky outcrop to avoid our bladders bursting. Back at base camp, we had an hour or so to rest, but not much place to rest in, since our lovely C.T. had ordered our tents to be dismantled. Don't you love him yet?

Valley of Flowers National Park - Uttarakhand

Earlier used as a cattle grazing ground, this was declared as a national park and then later an UNESCO World Heritage Site in the year 2005. This is in the Josimath Region of the Bhyundar Valley and is known for its outstanding scenic beauty. There is a little bit of everything here which makes this place magical. Starting from fresh air and snow clad mountain to colourful flowers and lush greenery, you get everything here. This place along with the Nanda Devi National Park make up the whole nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve and is a place extremely rich in natural biodiversity. There is an abundance of alpine shrubs and other plants, it is also known that in the epic of Ramayana, Hanumana brought down the Sanjeevani herb to save the life of lakshmana from this same place. It is still believed that the Sanjeevani herb grows here. The Gauri Parbat is the highest peak here and more than 650 varieties of flowers grow here including rare ones such as cobra lily, Brahmakamal as well as blue poppy. Photographers and nature lovers find their ultimate food for the sould in such a place and tourists find immense bliss and peace out here.
Valley of Flowers National Park is an Indian national park, located at a height in West Himalaya. It is renowned for its meadows of endemic alpine flowers and the variety of flora found there. It is located in Uttarakhand state. This richly diverse area is also home to rare and endangered animals, including the Asiatic black bear, snow leopard, brown bear and blue sheep. The gentle landscape of the Valley of Flowers National Park complements the rugged mountain wilderness of Nanda Devi National Park to the east. Together they encompass a unique transition zone between the mountain ranges of the Zanskar and Great Himalaya. The park stretches over an expanse of 87.50 km². Both parks are encompassed in the Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve (223,674 ha) which is further surrounded by a buffer zone (5,148.57 km²). The valley had always been known to the local people who avoided getting to this area for fear of fairies, who they believed, would take them away. It was in 1931 that Frank Smythe and Holdsworth stumbled into the valley while returning from their successful Kamet expedition and were “at once transported from a region of solemn austerity to a fairy land of dainty flowers, most of them dwarf but brilliant in colour”. Smythe wrote about the valley and its flowers – “their carpet is a celestial one, breathing innocence and joy to the world overburdened with sophistication and sorrow”. His writing invoked a great interest of the people in this valley, both at home and abroad. Legends associate this valley area with “Gandhamadan” from where Hanuman of Ramayana collected “Sanjeevani” herb to revive Laksmana. Hanuman had to visit far-flung areas in his search for the life-saving herb, some named after him. He visited Hanuman Chatti near Yamunotri, Hanuman Tibba near Gangotri, Hanuman peak near Nandadevi, Hanuman Chatti near Badrinath and ultimately the valley of flowers or Nanankanan as it is also known as.

Garden of the world. Entire valley is full of different flowers. Along the either side of the trail fully grown bushes lush greenery and snow capped mountains. From Ghangaria village pack your lunch and set out for valley early. Get your pass from the forest office. Through the dense forest trying to spot the wild life and enjoying the flora, crossing a couple of big streams you entire the valley. Flowers flowers flowers every where and the mountains by their side adds the beauty. Anyone can just sit on a rock and spend the entire evening looking towards the valley. You cannot camp inside the valley and forest personnel sweeps the park for wanders at the end of each day. Carry a whistle and don't blow it except you encounter any bears.

It is 26 kilometres from Nainital which is at an altitude of 1,220 m (4,000 ft). This lake is built with nine corners hence it is known as the Naukuchia lake. The lake is full of lotus and is surrounded by forest with a backdrop of the mountains and all this creates an ideal condition to sit on the banks and feel the breeze coming from the lake. It is the deepest of the lakes in the greater Naintal area. According to legend, it is said that if one takes in all nine corners in one glimpse, one can disappear in a cloud of smoke. After that, we made our way to visit other lakes and then at 1645 hours, we halted at Hanuman Mandir which is also known as ‘Hanuman Garhi’.

The drive from Nainital to Almora was super awesome with the river flowing on one of the side of the road. Less traffic and good roads led us to come out of our moving car and sit on edge of windows and enjoy the soothing breeze. Risky, yes but the drive and beauty of the place made it irresistible! We had our food at Hotel Shikhar in Almora. Food was good and then we started our drive to Ranikhet.

This is a lovely old town which has been the capital of Kumaon during the British Rule. Old buildings, Churches, narrow market lanes, up and down hill roads- all at one place. Do not forget to try Chat, Tikki and Cold Coffee at Almora. Drive down hill to take a bath in serene KOSI River; still and untouched. Almora is one of the best places still untouched by tourists and with sunrise and sunset views you can not forget. The evening walk to the BrightEnd Chowraha is one of the best walks you can have in a hill. For people who love calmness, away from touristy places; do visit it; you won't forget to cherish the trip and the Hills - specially the Trishul View during sunset.

Ranikhet - Uttarakhand

Self-proclaimed Army brats will get a thrill out of this place, for it is home to one of the most badass regiments of the Indian Army, the Kumaon Regiment. The Military Museum is a must visit for an insight into the history of this highly-decorated infantry regiment and and the country's brave warriors. This town in Almora is tailor made for those who simply wish to unwind in the hills. But still to keep its adventurous visitors busy, Ranikhet is home to many resorts which organise activities such as paragliding, camping, river-crossing and trekking. The forests encircling this cantonment town are home to several wildlife species such as leopards, Red-faced Monkeys, jackals, Red Foxes, Indian Hares and Pine Martens. The monastery in Ram Mandir is a quaint attraction where one can witness students being taught the long obliterated ancient Vedas and Vedic Mathematics. Take a blissful walk in the Chaubatia Gardens, which are abundant with fruit orchards and meadows adorned with flowers all around. Cuisines from Indian, international to simple cafe food are highly recommended from places such as Rainbow Restaurant, Glory Restaurant and Embassy.
When we woke up in Ranikhet – “queen’s meadow”, now a cantonment town – the warmth of our cottage was too luxurious to be overlooked. We had booked at the Tourist Rest House (TRH) of Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam (KMVN), and their cute cottages stood on a ridge overlooking a valley. Outside, the thin mountain air was warming up in the sun. After a hearty breakfast, we roamed about the village and found many trails winding down along the hillsides, running deep into the valley. A trail from the Mall Road led us to the famous Chaubatiya Gardens – an orchard teeming with apples and other juicy fruits, and housing a fresh juice counter. The cultivated apple trees gave way to stately deodar trees that stood tall and lofty over the slopes. The air near the forest smelled of wet mud and toadstools, and it was so fresh that it made us yawn. The yawn, however, wasn’t a result of boredom but of immense lightness and relaxation. Later, strolling along the expanses of the Ranikhet Golf Course – one of the highest in Asia – we made our way to Kausani.

It is the charming hill station located in the Almora district of Uttarakhand at an elevation of 1829 meters above the sea level. Ranikhet pacifies the nerves of avid city dwellers. Ranikhet literally means ‘Queen’s Meadow’ or ‘Queen’s Land’ which is an all season tourist spot for the peoples and especially for the admirers of the natural beauty. It is believed that the Queen Padmini of Kumaon was in love with this tiny hill paradise. So King Sudhardev had to oblige her by building a palace here and named this place as Ranikhet, the queen’s field. Though today, there is no trace of such palace found, but the place remained the same bewitching, full of flowers and fruits, trees and green meadows in the midst of heavenly Himalayan surroundings. This beautiful place was rediscovered by the Britishers. In 1869, the British established the headquarters of the Kumaon Regiment here and used the station as a retreat from the heat of the Indian summer. At present, Ranikhet is a cantonment town and it is the home and headquarters for the Kumaon Regimental Centre and Naga Regiment and is maintained by the Indian Army. The main city of Ranikhet is fairly crowded but the military area offers serene environment. Ranikhet is the place that reflects the best of the great Himalayas. The charming and the majestic views of the pine trees, lush green forests, delicate plant life and attractive wildlife, the fresh and pure scented mountain breeze, sounds of flora and fauna, the singing of birds, the panoramic view of the Himalayas sight, all adds to the heavenly and pure feeling of Ranikhet and leaves an unforgettable impact on the visitors. The salubrious atmosphere, tall conifer trees, green meadows and placid surroundings, makes Ranikhet as the unique hill station. The magnetism of each season in Ranikhet is always capable of luring tourists, making it an all season travel destination.

Just 5 kilometres from Sattal lies Bhimtal. After enjoying an amazing beauty of Sattal, Bhimtal was not that peaceful. It is more urban in nature. The lake has an island in the middle, which boasted of a restaurant earlier but now an aquarium has been set up with exotic varieties of fishes from countries like South Africa, Mexico and China. Bhimtal is the biggest lake around Nainital. We had a quck lunch there and then moved to our final destination in Lake Tour and that is Naukuchital.

Our day started early, everyone excited to get on with the trek.After a quick breakfast and some last minute luggage shuffling, we all set off to chants of "Har Har, Mahadev!" The route was scenic, but i fell to the back of the group. I had decided not to hire a mule, and soon realised that carrying my backpack myself would mean a compromise on my speed. We reached the village around 2 pm, and managed to have a hot lunch before the rains came down on us. But when we emerged from our rooms later, the scene outside was breathtaking. The sight of the clouds rising up between the hills was ethereal. The weather having cleared, our trek leader, C.T. decided that we should go on a small walk for "acclimatization" . After a few protests, we all grudgingly followed our guides. But all our complaints were hushed on seeing wispy clouds being whipped around by the wind, with the sun setting in the background. We all made our way back to camp quite content, and happy for having witnessed such beauty. Oh, and did I mention we had our first Oximeter check here? We scored pretty good (90+ for the majority), but were again reminded that "Less than 80, and we descend".Duh.

Ali Bugyal - Uttarakhand

Starting from the Lohajung Pass, the Ali Bugyal is arguably the longest trek route in India along with the bedni Bugyal. The route is lined with lush green meadows on both sides and is quite a difficult trek after a certain distance. This trek route passes through a number of valleys and villages out of which the most famous is the Wan Village. After this the route moves amidst forests of rhododendrons and oaks. The Wan Village is so popular because you get accomodation and camping options here. There are absolutely no posh and luxury resorts here but the cottages and tented caps are better than luxury hotels.

The trek to Ali Bugyal was like walking through a dreamscape. The longest trail so far, it snaked through a beautiful wooded area, steep in some places, gentle in others. We stopped midway in a small clearing for lunch, with the forest behind us and a steep drop ahead. The only thing missing was a pinch of salt for my boiled egg lunch ! Moving on, the forest around us started thinning out, giving way to larger patches of grass and small shrubs. And then coming over a rise, we got our first glimpse of the Ali Bugyal meadows. Here, right in front of me, for as far as I could see, were lush green meadows. As we moved forward, we came across shepherds with their herds of sheep, and quite a few grazing horses and mules. My legs moved slower of their own accord, as if in a silent agreement with my heart, to savour this sight for a tiny while longer. As we moved on, we got a glimpse of our camp site. It would be our first night in tents, and they stood out a happy blue against all the green around them. Out here, in the middle of nowhere, was a Maggi point, serving , as the name suggests, piping hot maggi, and tea to those moving towards their camp. We too, took a small break here, sipping on chai, gobbling up Maggi, and making out shapes in the clouds (we unanimously decided it was a Pegasus) Having gorged, we trudged to our camp, where we were told in our briefing that there would be a campfire that night, and we were to forage in the surrounding area for wood. Everyone threw themselves into the task happily, and in no time there was a bright bonfire burning, with the eventual Antakshari being played. Here we got our first glimpse of the mountains, the Nandaghunti and the Chowkhamba range, playing hide-n-seek with us through the gathering clouds. The rains came down suddenly, and everyone scuttled inside the communal dining tents for an early diner, playing dumb-charades while waiting for the rains to abate. Eventually, the rains petered out, and we meekly entered our tents to surrender to the encroaching sandman.

Chopta - Uttarakhand

India's mini Switzerland, Chopta is surprisingly unexplored. Perhaps it's the distance from urban towns or the lack of information that Chopta remains an offbeat destination. Located in Rudraprayag district in Uttarakhand, Chopta offers overwhelming views of snow-capped mountains, lush forests and small streams. The beginning point of many treks, Chopta is not a regular hill station. With its hidden trails, quiet hideouts and warm homestays, the small hilly town offers travellers an unforgettable experience. Magpie Eco Resort and Chauhan Guest house are some of the better places to stay here, though a lot of guesthouses and homestays are in the process of setting up. Do plan a long trip here since the route to Chopta is slightly tricky and you may have to change a few buses on the way. If you'd prefer travelling by train, do book your tickets way in advance and remember that there's no direct train to Chopta.
It is a small village no electricity, bad connectivity, Majestic Himalayas, Good Food, Welcoming People.

A very calm place with lots of flora and fauna to experience. Its surrounded with the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary which provides the much needed thrill in the itinerary. Though spotting any wild animals will be a matter of luck, but a small trek to the outhouse is very relaxing. Not to forget the KMVN guest house located at the near top and inside the sanctuary borders, it provides a lovely eco-friendly stay option for all tourists. And it will be a crime to miss the most amazing sunrise which can be experienced from the guest house garden lobby. It is one of my favorite places to experience the sunrise, as the first rays of rising sun illuminates the snow capped Himalayan peaks. Its a golden experience, which can be described with only 1 word. Magic. Pure Magic.

Jai Ganga Maa Har Ki Pauri is a well known ghat on the banks of the Ganges in Haridwar in Uttarakhand state in India. This worshipped spot is the real historic point of the sacred city of Haridwar. Truly, "Har" signifies Ruler Shiva who is said to be a god according to the school named Shaivite Rishav School of Hindu religious philosophy. The Ruler Shiva and Lord Vishnu are said to have gone to the Brahmakund in Har Ki Pauri in the Vedic times. There is an expansive foot shaped impression said to have a place with Lord Vishnu on a stone wall. It is believed that it is the exact spot where the Ganges leaves the mountains and enters the fields. The ghat is on the west bank of Ganges channel through which the Ganges is redirected just toward the north. Har Ki Pauri is likewise the range where a huge number of travelers unite and the celebrations begin amid the Kumbha Mela, which happens at regular intervals.
Literally meaning, the "Pond of Lord Shiva", Har Ki Pauri, attracts tourists and locals alike, throughout the year. It is customary for everyone here to take a dip into the Ganga. Plus, the evening Aarti (a public Worship of the Almighty), is a sight to remember...mantras being chanted on robust sound systems, devotees reiterating the words while lighting their earthen lamps and incense sticks. Check that out for yourself. I will spare you the details here. However, beware of fraudsters and pickpockets though; people often tend to be carried away and are less mindful of their environment, while attending huge congregations.

"The Queen Of Hills" as is popularly known, Mussoorie covers an expanse of beautifully located hills at a drive of 1 hour from Dehradun. The fog clad moutains, steep yet curvy roads, the lush of green covering habitations and the chillness of the january winter are all to die for. Despite the abundant tourist spots about its periphery, a nomadic escapade through these hills unravels the culture and achitecture of this once colonial summer retreat.

In the course of the day it had become windy and cold. Almost everyone was wearing multiple layers and having warm Maggi and sipping tea. The boat ride deserves a little more space. One, there was no haggling – the rate was fixed and the boatman did not ask for any additional tip. Further, the beauty of the surrounding could only be experienced in totality through the panoramic view that the boat ride offered. The boatman was very sociable and set his oars aside to click us.

The peaks of Trishul, Maiktoli, Nanda Ghunti, Nanda Devi, Nanda Kot and Panchachuli peaks are clearly visible across tea fields, glittering in the light. For even more stunning views there is Kalamuni Top at 3000 metres. Drives to nearby places like Birsa or Tejam are amazing, as you begin to see what mountains can actually look like!

This is a holiday resort in the beautiful hill station and you can stay in log cottages or normal cottages when you come here. The views of the foggy surroundings are even more perfect from here and the dense forests are perfect places for some camping, picnics and walking. The rooms here are just enough for you to put up and there can be a few spiders here and there but this is what you call real camping experience in the midst of the forest.

There's no point in beating around the bush so I'll just come straight out with it. This is the most disappointing part of Mussoorie and can definitely be excluded out of your itineraries. Its a flat ground on top of a hill with restaurants and shops and Maggi points all around. The irony is that the restaurants are named 'Himalayan View', 'Snow View' etc. But they block any chance of getting a good view. And then there's the irritating photographers who will eat your head until you let them click you dressed in pahaadi clothes and carry a flower basket on your head. You can reach this place by a not-so-spectacular trolley ride. I have heard that there is a hill trek also but haven't tried it. The verdict : this place is definitely worth a miss.

Dodital - Uttarakhand

Dodital is a fresh lake in Uttarakhand, India, set at a height of 3,024 meters (9,921 ft). to achieve Dodital, one could reach Uttarkashi by road and so walk to Dodital here via Bebra and alternative minor villages aboard the Ganges River. From Uttarkashi, a brief auto ride can take you to Sangamchatti from wherever the twenty one kilometer trek to Dodital begins. This can be a principally light trek, with nightlong halt choices at the village of Agora or Bebra. At Agora, that is seven kilometre from Sangamchatti, one will occupy one in every of the non-public lodges or or else, camp at Bebra that is nine kilometer from Sangamchatti. From there one will begin the second leg of the trek subsequent day which is able to take you to Dodital via the tiny village of Manjhi. The area unit a few of forest rest homes at Dodital wherever one will book a keep by taking permission at the forest workplace in Uttarkashi.
The next morning should be an early start too, and this will probably be one of the most challenging days of the trek. The trek to Darwa Pass is everything that the word 'trek' would encompass—walking, climbing, the need for a pair of strong lungs and a strong will. This 12 km trek dedicated to only uphill climbing requires you to walk upstream on the dry riverbed which means a lot of climbing over boulders and subsequently walking further uphill on paths that have to be created. By midday, you would be at Darwa Pass. Windy and with patches of snow, the pass will leave you awe-struck. Though it is not advisable to stay at the chilly pass for so long, we decided to have lunch there, bundled with caps, mufflers and gloves at over 14,000 feet (and lived to tell the tale). A perfect lunch spot and a camping ground is around half an hour downhill trekking from the Pass. Having reached your camping spot by afternoon, you have the rest of the day to take in the beauty of the Himalayas, breathe in the view of peaks including Bandarpooch, snow slide and put on more layers. Since it is quite close to the pass, expect a cold, windy night and cover yourself well while you sleep. Amidst the hail, rain and two seconds of snowfall, one can definitely forget it’s the month of May.

The next day was when the explorer in me woke up and took me to the Gangotri glacier where i had the adventurous pleasure of trekking for 18kms and on reaching the top the only reaction my body was capable of giving was my jaw dropping. After returning that night was literally the best because what’s heaven other than extremely cold climate outside and an extremely warm blanket besides you.

The way to sankri runs along the clear blue waters of tons and the yamuna river . One gets a glimpse of Himalays on reaching close to Sankri. The number of trekkers heading to Himalayas have given a lot of employment opportunities to the local residents . On the other hand, the environmental balance is getting disturbed. The trail from Sankri to Juda Ka Talab passes through the woods with tall,old and beautiful pine trees and takes around 4 hours. Snow is all around and you are surrounded with massive peaks. The Landscape is breathtaking.

Boating in the Nainital Lake is a calming experience. You can choose between a self driven peddle or a pilot ridden one. Cost - Rs 200 for a four person boat for an hour. I personally liked the pedal boat without the pilot. Here’s a tip of riding the pedal boat: Don’t try to pedal too hard, it will only tire you. Pedal as if you’re walking and the boat will sail as smooth as silk!

Tourists hire peddlers and shikaras - the two kinds of boats available- and spend their evenings enjoying the beauty of the hills and the weather. This was our last spot before we head back to our city in the early hours of the next morning.

A newly constructed sparkling structure with a spread out campus housed the idols – Durga, Hanumanji and the Guru Neem Karoli.

The estate is the top of a flat mount and its cottages, which have lovely orchards, are still well maintained and now function as cottages for tourists. If you have the money you could stay here, else there are two Ashrams nearby on the way down towards Lohaghat.

The temple comprised of the main shrine and a cluster of smaller shrines around it. In the sanctum Santorum , there was a stone statue of The Surya perched on his regal chariot drawn by the seven horses. There were other broken pieces of idols as well and we could identify Ganesh, Vishnu and Shiv. We saw lamps and flowers and a priest. More importantly the cluster of shapely stone structures of varying sizes perched, quite high on top of this hill, secluded from civilization, basking in the brightness of the sun in all their regality, was serendipitous. The place left a deep impression on us. We spent about an hour there absorbing the beauty of the temple and clicking photographs.

This is the second Sun Temple of India after Konark. A little known place, it is about 3-4 KM from Kosi, a town that you can reach easily by bus and then walk it to the temple. Though the temple has not been spared the ravages of time, it is nevertheless still beautiful, and the fact that it is nestled in the hills with no metaled road connecting it, it still remains calm and peaceful. Being a Sun Temple, the first rays of the sun are supposed to fall directly on Shiva's idol. But this would be an ambitious journey indeed. But even in the middle of the day, this crumbling, decadent structure has its own charm.

To get to Jageshwar, take a bus bound towards Pithoragarh and get off at Artola from where you can leg the last few KMs. Jageshwar has cheap guesthouses and also a state provided lodging at the KMVN rest house.

Almora is full of temples, some near some far. Kasar Devi temple is a pleasant and easy walk from Almora, some 7-8 KM away from the town. The temple here is old, dated back to the 2nd century AD. But the temple has a history that was made quirkier in the latter half of the 20th century when it became a spot on the map of the counter-culture movement or, hippies. Kasar Devi became a part of the international 'hippie trail', and has seen people like Bob Dylan, Allen Ginsberg, Timothy Leary, Robert Thurman and his daughter Uma Thurman (as a child) visiting here. As a result, it’s quite aptly called the 'hippie hill' and less often referred to as Crank's Ridge after Leary streaked through the place!

This is by far the most popular tented destination from Delhi. Winding upwards on the road from Rishikesh is the beginning of the white sandy beaches alongside this clean and gurgling avatar of the river Ganga. And all along the beach one can see little dotted lines of colorful tents. Many a camp offer stay, rafting and a weekend of great food and lounging around. A perfect place for friends to do nothing or that little something that city malls will just not provide. I have gone there more than a dozen times and stayed in across many camps. Whichever camp you choose, the crispy air, the free spirited ganges, the nurturing sun and fresh delicious camp food would be on everyone's menu. I will suggest choose one which has a large sandy beach and not too many tents.

Patar Nachauni - Uttarakhand

Once the king Jasdhawal of Kanauj came for a tour here with his goddess queen Nandadevi where she gave birth to a babe. The king organized a dance show here and also named this place as Patar Nachauni after that. The name literally means 'dancing girls' in the local language. This is what the queen took as a sacrilege in her domain and killed about 300 people by sending a dangerous hailstorm downhill. Presently, this place is a camp site and a part of the route of the Ali and Bedni Bugyal trekking route.
We set off from Ali Bugyal towards Patar Nachauni, moving through the meadows of Bedni Bugyal. It was a short trek today, and people moved at a leisurely pace, no one in a hurry to reach camp. The rains came down an hour or so out of camp, and the ponchos came out. We reached the campsite with a vista of boiling clouds overhead. And guess what! There was an actual shop here, too.Right in the middle of our camp, selling the inevitable Maggi, chai and egg. We got down to enthusiastically demolishing some grub, still in our ponchos , unmindful of the rains around us. Here too, we made an uphill walk when the rains ceased (C.T. was adamant on acclimatizing).On our way back, Prashant and I took a longer route, moving a little ahead of camp, and sat down to look at the mountains peeking out from behind the green hills. We waited for a while hoping to get one clear shot of the entire range, but the clouds kept dancing in front of us. On reaching back, we went for the briefing, where C.T. admonished us for straying from camp and were again reminded of our Oximeter check and falling which, we would have to "descend".

An untouched spot at considerable height from Mussoorie. It is lesser known to tourists. Rather it would be visited by travellers and not tourists, I assume. I stayed in a resort on a quiet cliff. I was cut off from everyone since signals are invariably dead there. I had full one day of peace. Waking up to the sunrise was mesmerising. I felt close to nature in real terms. I walked on moist grass, sipped hot coffee, listened to birds chirp in the background, enjoyed some sun tan. You won't have much to do around the place as the nearest market is in Chamba - 10-11 kms. away but you will get soaked in nature and would find all the materialistic stuff useless if you truly love nature!

Dhanaulti is quick rising as a diamond among the significant travel destination in Uttarakhand, on Mussoorie-Chamba street at 2250 m above ocean level.

The since a long time ago lush inclines, apathetic trips, cool stroking breeze warm and affable occupants, dazzling lovely climate and marvelous captivating perspective of snow secured mountains makes it a perfect retreat for a casual occasion stay. Dhanaulti is the base point for various treks into the snow-topped Himalayas, importantly to the Tehri area of Garhwal. The most well known treks are through the thick snow capped timberlands that take you to Surkanda Devi, Chandrabadni and Kunjapuri, the sacrosanct three Shaktipeeths of the blessed Devi Darshan triangle. Dhanaulti is not a colonial town but it is a sleepy hamlet, surrounded by towering mountains, tall trees and green valleys
You will get snowfall in abundance at Dhanaulti if you go during winters. I love the Eco Park where an environment lover will find paradise. There are steps supported by wooden logs leading you to the highest point of the cliff and the entire cliff has been converted to and ecopark. Various rare species of plants and birds are a delight.

It is located on the summit of Tungnath at 13000 ft and means when literally translated "Moon Rock", it is said to be the place where Lord Rama meditated after defeating the demon-king Ravana and also the place where the moon god spent his time in penance.
Chandrashila is at a distance of 1.5 kms from Tungnath and requires a steep climb from Tungnath..Bone chilling cold and wilderness all around this region makes it even more adventurous for travellers and tourists. It is one of the best places in the Himalayas in India to witness the Sunrise amidst of Peaks like Trishul,Nanda Devi,Chaukhamba and Bunderpunch..It is even possible for tourists to touch these clouds as they surround this place over all..These clouds looks like raw cotton being arranged in packs.

Tunganath-Chandrashils: 1.5 kms Early at 4 a.m. we started our trek through the edge of the hill. It was dark but the moon lit up the road for us. Reminds me of "Silver" by Walter de la Mare. It was just my mom, dad and me. The road was not clear ahead of us because it diverged into two paths. One goes to Guptkashi which goes downhill while the road to Chandrashila is uphill. We had to literally climb to avoid the snow blocking the road. Please do not try walk over the snow. You might slip and fall. Remember the road is steeper. You might have to take the support of the alpine moss. They are really strong and helped me find shortcuts. I was ahead of mom n dad, a complete new experience of understanding the way up to the summit where there was no one else to guide. Finally, after 1.5 hours we reached Chandrashila, the rising sun's rays fell on Chowkhamba and enlightened the entire valley alongside. The summit is a 360 degree view point flaunting the Himalayas on one 180 degrees side and their shadows on the hills on the other. The only thing present at the summit is a Ganga Devi temple, a small one. Feels joyous to that the days first bell was rang by me, day's first visitor; the first witness to ethereal beauty and grandeur of the majestic Himalayas. From here was trekked down to Tunganath, took our bags and trekked back to Chopta. We were lucky to experience a great sunny weather and hence the colours I saw while comming back was dynamic.

As the trek starts, with every step I take it keeps on getting steeper and steeper as you approach towards the Tungnath temple (3680 metres). The trek stretch gives you a chance to soak in the serene beauty of Nandadevi national park. With eateries on the trek side, you get time to grab a bite be it maggi, some biscuits, a hot cup of pahadi chai or may be a glass of Rhododendron juice (all must try this, it’s quite soothing). As you see the tip of the temple it gives you a sense of fulfillment, a feeling that just can’t be penned down… you need to breathe that air and soak in it to feel beautiful.

Commuting from Delhi is easy—you can always rely on the semi-deluxe Air Conditioned buses to Rishikesh under ₹400 Rupees from Kashmere Gate ISBT. It is advisable to leave at night so that you reach Rishikesh between 5 am-6am, leaving the rest of the day to travel beyond. The journey is about 6 hours (unless your bus decides to take a detour into a very narrow lane near Haridwar and has to drive in reverse for about a kilometer, in which case add another two hours). Once you reach Rishikesh, a quick wash-up can be done at the Rishikesh bus station which has surprisingly clean washrooms. From there, a quick ride to the taxi stand will put forth you an array of Sumos, Boleros and Scorpios— your next ride to Uttarkashi which will cost around ₹3000 per taxi and a journey that will take another 4.5-5 hours. There are a lot of dhaabas along the way to catch a good breakfast of aloo parathas. Once at Uttarkashi, you can hire for yourself a guide and porters and the rations you would need during the trek. We hired 6 porters and a guide, costing us ₹625 per porter per day, and ₹1200 per day for the guide. The same market places is punctuated with small hotels, if one feels the need for lunch. From here, you can load your now-heavy-with-rations-rucksacks into another taxi that cost us ₹1000 each and be dropped at Sangam Chetti after a 45 minute bumpy ride, which is the starting point of the trek.

A picturesque spot that takes the cake here is the crystalline Chenab Lake, which can be reached through a treacherous trek to Dang village. The pilgrimage to Badrinath temple is another renowned trek. There aren't any places to shop out here but one can always go downhill to Joshimath to purchase all sorts of woollen apparel. No fancy places to eat though, the little joints spread around this charming snowscape serve delicious Garhwali dishes as well as usual Indian fare.
An amazing place to visit during winters. However, you won't find much to do in summers other than calm weather.

The place is very pleasant and can accommodate a large number of people at one. Avoid going to this place during the evening as the restaurant stays almost full at that time. The waiters are very friendly and they always serve their customers very fast and politely. One must visit this place once if they are visiting Uttarakhand at any time in the year.
This place is all famous.. Tripadvisor rates it, Lonely Planet rates it. Which is why I went there at the first place. Personally, however, I think the place is overrated. The people take too long to serve food, the food was not freshly prepared and was cold too. It is not worth the money they charge for their food. I would give the place a 2 out of 5.

Brahamasthali - Uttarakhand

The next day we decided to go to Brahamasthali (as suggested by Naresh). It was 12kms ahead of Pangot plus around 1 and a half kms trek. I was not sure about the trek, but I still decided to give it a try (and thank God I tried). The trek was in the midst of lush green forests, sometimes it was scary also as we could hear noises of some wild animals (probably our imagination). The view, half way through the trek was mesmerising. We went till top, some 9000 ft. There was a small temple and a baba's (saint) kutiya. It was difficult to guess his age but he seemed to be old but was smart and active and he was basically famous for his chillam. We chatted with him for almost an hour. He offered us Rooafza with curd (which was very innovative and tasty) which he prepared in his small kutiya only. There was chulha also in that kutiya. Astonishingly he was well aware about the outside world- he discussed about politics, the places, the tourism. There was no TV there, but then I noticed a small radio set lying in his kutiya. He told that he listened to samachar (news) everyday. While leaving he gave us a register and a pen and told us to write something in it. He did that with every visitor. In evening we went to Mall Road, Nainital to have dinner and by night 11.00pm we were back in our very own Kafal House.

Pangot - Uttarakhand

Walking into Pangot is like getting in a fairytale village, tucked away inside the Kumaon hills, with witching forests reverberant the songs of many vibrant birds and tiny trails that disappear into sunstruck glades, which are Pangot for you. A birdwatcher’s paradise, Pangot is fifteen kms from Nainital and therefore the drive is through the bird habitats of Cheena Peak forests via Snow read purpose and Kilbury. Varied bird species are recorded at Pangot and its encompassing areas. Life in Pangot is therefore quiet and unhurried that the foremost exciting activity could be a trip to the tiny, quaint village market. The tea-stalls wherever villagers link up could be a smart place to catch up with native life leads to pay hours doing nothing however being an observer of ‘life passing by’. Pangot is currently a part of The Naina Devi mountain chain Bird Conservation Reserve, the country’s newest, notified on ninth March 2015 by the Uttarakhand government. This place is attractig more and more tourist from past couple of years as its a amazing place for travelers.
Pangot is a place for bird watchers. One can find around 250-280 bird species there. What is required is a pair of binoculars and DSLR (unfortunately we were not carrying the both), still we managed to spot various different kinds of birds in different colours- purple, blue, green parrots with yellow tails!

Bob's Place - Uttarakhand

Let’s not call ‘Bob’s place’ a resort. It’s more like a vacation home that you can rent out for a few days. When you arrive tired from a hustling bustling city, looking for some peace and pampering, Bob’s staff welcome you with generous hearts and put you at ease at once. I couldn't help but gape at that picture book land of ivy-covered cottages, flower beds and the misty mountains.

Travelers come here from all over the country to see the oak and pine bushes which are the best attraction of this spot.
We went in another cottage- THE KAFAL HOUSE- and it came as a bliss to us. Beautiful cottage with beautiful people. Despite the cottage been booked, its caretaker arranged rooms for us. The service was awesome, neat and clean and words are less to describe the food. And the plus point was that it was very reasonable. We met one more person there, probably the owner, Naresh, 29 years old, tall and handsome, living alone in a tin cottage-house and he named it as Shiva’s Den (and this was not the same as Shiva's den in mcleodganj). It was a small, beautiful tin room, with blue lights, soft music, mattresses, cushions and was filled with agarbatti smell. It was divine. We sat there for quite a while, had tea (lemon grass and nettle tea- he had his own farms).

Jalna - Uttarakhand

It is located in Almora district and is about 1600mts in altitude, it is a quite and peaceful place to visit.
the hotel was valley facing and overlooked the Himalayan range. It had reasonable parking space and a lovely fire place in each room - quite useful in winter. The downhill slope towards the hotel is reasonably steep and in case of rains the tyres will slip.

Gairal Forest Rest House - Uttarakhand

This Rest house could be a favorite with plenty of frequent guests to the park, even if it's placed right on the eastern border and also the reserve forest, as it is in the simplest locations. Gairal is found simply higher than the bank of the Ramganga with high hills in each direction. It consists of 3 all totally different types of accommodations. These square measure 1) the recent building, 2) the new building and 3) the jungle huts. The recent building features a terribly nice charm with it’s sloping roof, shaded porch and proximity to the neighboring forest and tower. The rooms square measure well taken care of and also the square rooms astonishingly well created. The new forest building isn't terribly appealing in terms of appearance, with it’s single story box like form. It will have one positive facet, that is that the feeding hall. Some wonderful Indian dishes square measure on the market here.
While we were settled for lunch at Kallaji’s dhaba in Dhikala after leaving Khinnanauli, my friend proposed a visit to Gairal, a less frequented and difficult to access forest of great beauty. This was to be the highest point of the trip! On the way we stopped at Jhirna Jali, another view point for crocodiles and gharials. Leaving the gharials to their siesta on the sandy banks of the Ram Ganga we resumed our journey to Gairal until I spotted a sambhar deer standing on a rock in an awkward posture. I had my camera ready to shoot, when it suddenly let out a call followed by another and yet another as if to warn the whole jungle of some hidden danger. Its tail was up and right foot stomping the rock. Petrified it stood glued to the rock looking across the river. Certainly our presence could not be the reason for its anxiety. The call was echoed by langurs, a confirmation of the movement of a skilful predator. From the SUV our eyes darted in all directions and froze at the sight of the black stripes on orange-yellow coat emerging from the tall elephant grass on the other bank of the river. The fully grown male tiger looked around and stepped into the river. The adrenalin was pumping hard. One eye at the tiger and the other on the view finder, I kept shooting the maharaja. Oh what a deft swimmer this cat can be! The sambhar fled and hid under cover of foliage. The langurs chattered themselves hoarse. We sat rooted in the SUV following every step of the tiger. Out of water, a big shrug and the tiger was just below us almost in eye to eye contact. Suddenly we found ourselves in the path of the big cat. Without firing the engine we rolled back about 20 meters to maintain safe distance respecting the right of way of the king of Corbett. The seasoned campaigner sensed some extraneous presence, delayed his appearance on the road. Once sure of his safety, the tiger finally appeared on the road quite relaxed but alert. He looked towards us, as if on purpose, eye to eye once

Khinnanauli Forest Rest House - Uttarakhand

Its key site offers a simple getaway to the different parts of the recreation center. This Khinnanauli Forest rest house is a superior spot to observe the characteristic vegetation close to Jim Corbett National Park. Khinnanauli's perfect location provides an easy getaway to all parts of the corbett Park. There are several forest rest houses which are situated inside the Jim Corbett National Park, These rest houses are maintained and operated by the forest department & provides accomodation for wildlife lovers & tourists. This place has a large population of tigers, tigers living in here are kept under proper supervision from the outside people as the number of tigers was decreasing because of improper supervision earlier, this is a paradise for all the tigers living in Khinnanauli.
Following the morning jaunt, we returned to Ramnagar around mid day to collect our permit to stay in side the Park at Khinannauli, preferring it to the more populated Dhikala. The 25 km drive to Khinanauli via the Dhankhedi gate turned out to be a memorable short jaunt. We drove through the rain washed pristine and scented saal forest crossing several sots which are the fresh water channels that ultimately tumble into Ramganga the principal river of the Park. We made several interesting forays to High Bank Point to see a fully grown gharial, and the Champion and Ram Singh roads in search of elephants. We reached Khinanauli at about 2pm barely in time to get ready for our first elephant ride of the trip. Astride Mohini a young elephant of 28 years, we rode into the forest. Our mahout, Nayab said sighting of a Red headed vulture, earlier known as the king vulture was considered auspicious and raised hopes of tiger sighting. Three more groups joined in this ride. The mahouts surveyed the soft sands to pick up fresh pugmarks and decide a trail worth following. They were all ears for the warning cries of animals let out on seeing the tiger. One of the elephants noticed a tiger in the lantana bush and signaled to the rest. All the four mahouts guided their elephants with rare agility and excitement. Suddenly a tiger, in fact a young tigress leapt out of the elephant grass and fiercely growled at us. It was my moment! I was struck by the sheer beauty of the animal, its shining coat, sinewy build and fire in the eyes. The elephants were moving and turning fast making it difficult to hold on to the houda let alone take some pictures. All I could manage was three pictures of the tigress that soon escaped taking advantage of the terrain.

Pithoragarh - Uttarakhand

An area of exquisite natural beauty and serenity, Pithoragarh is also popularly called 'Little Kashmir'. This charming city with its fascinating forests is placed at a formidable height of 645 m and provides a gateway to the Himalayas. The pristine town of Munsiyari can easily be deemed as a nature lover's paradise. Its wildflowers and serene lakes are an ideal place to relax and unwind. If you like an action packed holiday, though, this may get slightly boring for you. If adventure sports is your thing, Chandak is the place for you. It provides the opportunity to try a hand at trekking and hand gliding as well. Nestled in the midst of raw natural beauty is the Narayan Ashram of Pithoragarh, which is a structure of great importance to the local community. Not only does it serve as an educational and training centre, but this structure also has a meditation room and library. Indulge in this region's natural beauty at the Askot Sanctuary, which has a rich treasure of lush flora and indigenous fauna. Pithoragarh, although a small town, has a good number of hotels and guest houses to match the travellers' varied taste and one can easily find accommodation here within their budgets. Local eateries here, although minimal in number, provide a distinctive experience of the local cuisine. A town hidden away from the modern city life, Pithoragarh is a serene experience.
As you travel upwards towards Pithoragarh, towards the Indo-Nepal border the mountains become larger, the road narrower and traffic scant. You'll cross small Kumaoni villages, with small houses with blue windows and doors. Pithoragarh itself is a small town nestled in the valley under the shadow of the Panchachuli range. Apart from the Pithoragarh Fort built by the Gorkhas in the 18th-19th century, you'll have plenty of walks. The walk to Chandak which is roughly 8 or so KMs away is well worth the stunning views! There are cheap hotels, but at the price, the KMVN Ulka Devi Rest House has by far the best location!

Solani Aqueduct was developed by the British in 1846 and typifies the ideal sample of designing wonder in Uttarakhand. The Old Solani Bridge is manufactured over Old Gang Nahar (old Upper Ganga Canal), no water streams into it now. It is considered as the most striking block stone work structure. Increased as of late, it is a wellspring of significant fascination for individuals going by Roorkee. This place is still to be discovered by most of the travelers, for this reason this place never gets populated so travelers coming here can spend a quality time with their family.
On our way to Haridwar. One of our great endeavours. Weather made it even more challenging. But it was fun.

Beatles Ashram - Uttarakhand

Next day we roamed around the streets of Rishikesh, especially Ram Zula and Laxman Zula were the only bridges to cross the river. We tasted different types of food to satisfy our taste buds. Bhelpuri, Juice of Sugarcane, panipuri all were delicious for which our stomachs were starved for.Later on during the evening we visited Maharshi Mahesh Yogi's ashram famously known as Beatles Ashram. Famous music band Beatles visited this place to learn transcendental meditation and since then ashram is famously called as Beatles Ashram. This place is currently in abandoned state because it falls under the territory of Rajaji National Park, but we can visit this place. There are old buildings and walls of these buildings are painted with poetry, thoughts, and pictures of Beatles etc. Anybody can visit the place and leave the mark of himself with poetry or painting on the walls.At the time of sunset we gathered on the ghat for Ganga Arati. Sun was slowly sinking down on the other side of the bank and its reflection turned the colour of river from white to saffron. Chanting of “Hare Rama Hare Krishna” was going around making the atmosphere so enchanted. After experiencing the divine feeling of the Ganga Arati, I returned back home murmuring "Hare Rama Hare Krishna, Krishna, Krishna Hare Hare".

Divine Ganga cottage - Uttarakhand

Divine Ganga Cottage is well known place for stay also offers mediatation and yoga classes.
Hotel Divine Ganga Cottage is located in Tapovan, which is hardly 500 m away from Lakshman Jhula. The hotel is not on the main road and you infact have to walk about 300 m inside the bylanes, if you are coming via main road. But, it is definitely worth every rupee spent. They have different categories of room i.e. Standard, Deluxe, Gangaview, Presidential Suite, Family room. I was upgraded to a Deluxe room which was spacious, clean, with fresh towels and linen bed covers, clean toilets and shower. They have an in-house roof top restaurant which serves almost all types of Cuisines, as they heavily cater to the foreign crowd that visits Rishikesh all year round. Taste and cost of the food is again worth of every rupee. The view from roof top is spectacular, with River Ganga flowing beneath, covered by high rise mountains on all sides. Like every Hotel in Rishikesh, even Divine Ganga Cottage has Spa, river rafting, bunjee jumping, trekking, camping etc. facilities. I used their Spa service and I can easily recommend that to anyone who may want to use. Staff is extremely friendly, informative and cordial.

Roopkund Trek Base Camp - Uttarakhand

It is a very famous trek that begins at the base camp and takes 5days to move from 8,000ft to 16,000ft in 4days.
The day we saw the program-me in National geography named – mystery of skeleton lake, it attracted us towards that place and we decided to go there and explore the place. Well it was 16000 feet above sea level but the mystery was haunted and captivating. Roopkund Lake is the place where you dig some snow and probably you find some skeletons, to reach there we have to do trekking. We were passing through beautiful views of nature; the weather was chilling and nose was shrinking. Trekking to this place occurs thrice in a year so we selected the summer season i.e. may. When we reached there we saw that ice was melting and the skeletons were floating in the lake, the mystery behind this lake is still undiscovered but some investigations says that there is skeletons of around 300 people belonged to the people of 9th century who died due to hail storm. One more investigation reveals that they are the Japanese who died during Second World War. Leaving all these mysteries one can see the charm of the nature which god has given to this world, by visiting that place we felt that we have seen the heaven and experienced the pluck of trekking. If you want to experience some adventure in your life, then pack your bag and move to see the Roopkund Lake.

GMVN Tourist Bungalow Syalsaur - Uttarakhand

Not only is this is an awesome property but also absolute value for money. The location of this holiday resort is very close to the Mandakini River and thus the beautiful and peaceful views and atmosphere is an advantage. You can also participate in a number of tours which start from here and enjoy almost all the important tourist attractions here. The presence of the Kartikeya Swamy Temple very close to this bungalow makes the atmosphere even more divine. This place is thus a perfect one for a peaceful getaway away from all the tiresome surroundings of the city.
Syalsaur doesn't have many stay options because of its remoteness. The GMVN tourist bungalows are great and affordable. These bungalows with interiors made of bamboo sticks add a rusty, mountainous appeal to your stay. The guest house is located right next to the Mandakini river in the mist of the green pastures and is a great place to rest and relax after a tiring day out.

I made it a point to come here every time I visited Mussoorie. The popularity of this place is evident from the plethora of lovely messages left on napkins by visitors which are used for decorating the place. The decor is red, bold and lively. You can see many 'Free Tibet' posters all around the place. The staff is super friendly and the food is super yummy.

Hemkund - Uttarakhand

The Hemkund Sahib also known as Gurudwara Sri Hemkunt Sahib Ji, is a Sikh spot of worshiping and journey site in Chamoli region, Uttarakhand, India. It is committed to Guru Gobind Singh Ji (1666–1708), the tenth Sikh Guru. Dasam Granth says this is the spot where Pandu Raja used to practice his Yoga. The Dasam Granth also says that God requested Sikh Guru Gobind Singh to take birth while he was in profound meditation at the mount of Hemkunt. Hemkund is unavailable from October through April on account of snow bound ways and icy masses. Sikh travelers land in May and set to work to repair the damage to the way over the winter, which custom is called kar seva ("work benefit"), an idea which shapes a critical principle of the Sikh confidence. The design and development of the present gurudwara was begun in the mid-1960s, when Major General Harkirat Singh, Engineer-in-Chief, Indian Army went to the gurudwara.
Its one of the most sacred places of worship for the Sikhs. The distance is just 6 kilometres from the village of Ghangaria but its a very steep climb and the altitude changes drastically. The sarovar at the lake is also according to Hindu mythology where Laxman transformed homself into water and hence there is a Laxman temple also here.

Hemkund Sahib - Uttarakhand

Also known as the Gurudwara Henkunt Sahib, this is the highest gurudwara in the world. It is on the shores of the Hemkund lake at an altitude of over 14000 ft above sea level. The water of this lake is always freezing and equally chilly is the wind here. this is a beautifully maintained gurudwara where they serve maggi and tea as part of the langar continuously. Also, the sweet halwa prasad of here is very tasty. The peaceful ambience has a magical effect on everyone. To reach this place you will have to keep trekking and then climb a number of stone stairs. The journey may seem to be tiresome but the fabulous experience will compensate for all the difficulty you have had taken to reach here.
Blend of Spirituality and Divine Beauty Set amidst towering snow-capped mountains and lying beside a lake of pristine blue water, the Sikh shrine of Sri Hemkunt Sahib looks, even to the not-particularly-pious, a place of almost unbelievable beauty and peace. Seven peaks - known as the Sapt Sring- surround the shrine, looming over lush green pastures. The lake’s rocky shores are covered with snow through most of the year, but when the snows melt, the almost mythical yellow-green flower known as the Brahma Kamal, the `Lotus of the Gods’, blooms amidst the rocks. It’s a place of a rather wild and untamed beauty- and one of Sikhism’s most important shrines. Sri Hemkunt Sahib is accessible only in the summer, between June and October. The rest of the year, heavy snows make passage impossible, and usually block off the trail leading up to the shrine.

This secluded and serene waterfall is about 10 km before Mussoorie on the Dehradun-Mussoorie road. The first time I went here was in August 2006 with my mum, my best friend and her mum. We took a taxi to reach the bottom of the falls. There were very few people there and we had Maggi and tea at the small shop there. The next time was with my hostel mates. We walked downhill from the main road to reach the bottom and had a wonderful time there. We were 11 girls and went crazy clicking pics and having some water fun. On the way back we got a bit adventurous and decided to take the dirt track going vertically up instead of the standard route. The outcome was a few scratches here n there and a lot of leeches in our feet. Overall we had loads of fun on this adventurous trek. Apart from these visits I went there thrice again and each time was a unique experience on its own. I fell in love with the place because there was no commercialization and I could thoroughly enjoy nature in peace.

Mandakini River - Uttarakhand

The meaning of the word 'Mandakini' is 'calm' or 'unhurried' and the Mandakini River is this a symbol of a woman who flows calmly. This is also an extremely holy river whose mention is found in the Shrimadbhagavatagita as one of the trascendental rivers. The Mandakini is a tributary of the Alakananda River and joins with the same at Rudraprayag after which Alakananda moves towards the Deviprayag. The origin of the river is from the Chorabari Glacier in Kedarnath region and is throughout fed by the Vasukiganga River. After Devaprayag the conjoined river flows as the Bhagirathi River which later merges as the holy Ganges. The NH- 107 runs over this river. The river is said to turn violent during the heavy monsoon seasons and it often destroys villages and even parts of the highway.
Mandakini literally means "she who flows calmly". On the face of it Mandakini seems like a calm river but, come the monsoons the river goes violent with its flooding. Yet, the river is surely enjoyed during its calmer times. A tributary of the Alaknanda River Mandakini originates from a glacier n Kedarnath and flows to change form and meet the Ganges in the end. The river in Syalsaur passes like a lifeline in the area. We camped on the banks of this beautiful river. This Himalayan river is worth a visit. You can also indulge in some kayaking along the river.

Little Llama Cafe - Uttarakhand

I reached the hotel late night on 15th. The next morning I was under the cold weather and was looking for a cosy and comfortable place to drink some hot liquids. I had seen this cafe before on my previous travels. So I thought to give it a try. The place is located a few minutes on the road towards Landour which is right next to the Picture Palace. The cafe was really comfortable when I stepped in. I sat right next to the window that had a pleasing look of the valley. The clouds came and went. It rained for a while, and then the sun shined in all its glory. Who wouldn't enjoy to sit at a cafe like this? I will! always! I ordered a cup of hot chocolate and some steaming hot chicken momos. The hot chocolate was the best I ever had. I couldn't find a cup of chocolaty goodness like that even in a city like Delhi. The food was delectable as well. I spent many hours sitting there writing about my travels and some poetry. I plan on returning to the place again and spend some more time talking to the people there. This time I will try the Chamomile Tea which is a huge hit, as I have heard from other people.

The Mall Road - Uttarakhand

The Mall Road is famous area in Mussoorie, famous for city walk and shopping.
Personally I would prefer the Shimla or Nainital Mall Road any day over this crowded road. I guess I'm being harsh but really can't help it. My idea of a perfect hill station is a peaceful solitary getaway from your normal life and Mussoorie is the exact opposite of that. Its all so cluttered and full of shops and tourists. There is an awesome omlet shop on the main road. Ask anyone there and they would direct u to it. There are some stretches which are relatively less crowded and offer magnificent views of the Doon valley. And no matter how crowded it is, its hard to complain when you're walking in clouds. That's the best part i guess. The weather in Mussoorie is almost always perfect and a walk down this winding road always lights you up. And it gets even better when it snows.

If you want to challenge yourself then you must go there because in winters its night temperature goes less than -25 degree C. We were there on 02 january, at that time temperature was -14 degree C and we used 3 quilts per person. That was the extreme whether I ever felt in my life. But thanks to bonfire, due to which I spent 2-3 hours of quality time among my peers. You can enjoy a 20 minutes rope way ride for INR 800 from Joshimath to Auli artificial lake or chairlift ride from auli view point to artificial lake for INR 300 which is worth having. There you will not find more than 5 hotels including camps. We stayed at 'HOTEL SHAILSHIKAR HERITAGE INN', which was a tidy and clean motel with maximum number of people coming from Delhi, so we felt like home there as the owner was a decent man. Charges was normal, INR 500 for one person for one night. They also have geyser facility and vegetable maggie is on my 'TO DO' list on that climate. It is an isolated area, separated from the outer world and had a scenic view also for the ones who smoke hashish and wanna be in peace.

XRA - Uttarakhand

It is a well known Government licensed adventure company, located in Auli under the name XRA Cottages, and provides tourists with activities like Trekking, Skiing, Snowboarding at affordable prices.
XRA Cottage is actually located in Auli, which is ahead of Joshimath. Joshimath is at the base of the mountain and Auli is at the Top. My experience of XRA Cottages, by far, has been the best amongst my entire travel lifetime. Auli has hardly 4 homestays/hotels/cottages and XRA is one of them. It is located at the top of the mountain, surrounded by the mighty himalayas on all sides - 360 degrees. Reaching the place is difficult as it is a long drive from Rishikesh or Haridwar or Dehradun. However, it is worth every efforts. The place is practically an untouched virgin beauty. There are hardly any visitors. XRA is run by a family who also lives there, therefore the food is very homely, basic yet tasty. They conduct many adventure activities like Skiing (Auli is India's top most Skiing destination and Vivek Panwar the owner of XRA is a national level Skiing champion), trekking (Valley of Flowers, Har Ki Doon, Neelkanth valley, Nanda Devi, Dronagiri, Trishul, Nar aur Narayan Peak etc.), Hiking, mountain biking etc. Every room has one wall made of glass giving you a full view of snowy mountains right in front of you.

The city itself is extremely organised since it is a planned township, which makes it so much more attractive to explore. A few small scale industries that adorn the outer-most block of the city have played a pivotal role in developing the city. Kalyani lake is a popular attraction within the city. It paints a magnanimous picture against the grass and sky with boats aligned on the banks. A plethora of places to visit on its outskirts offer a sense of adventure, such as the Chinchoti waterfalls, Tamak fort and Tungareshwar temples. The landscape calls for inquisitiveness of thought, bringing about a wholesome sense of belonging. Kalyani is definitely a place worth visiting.
Kalyani is around 16 kms from sub-district headquarter, Dunda. Situated besides NH - 94, villagers are very thankful to the government for opening a PHC in the village. Also has a senior secondary school nearby which makes the children very happy as they get extra time to play and time is not lost due to the travel to school.

Tuini - Uttarakhand

It is about 120kms from Shimla located in Uttarakhand.
this was the place which took forever to reach. Road was drastically damaged starting from deoban and till tuini it was like that. Rain added difficulty level in that road but along the road you will get to see most amazing sceneries of Uttrakhand. You might have seen massoorie, you might have seen Auli and you might have been to kedarnath, badrinath or Almora. But there is other side of Uttarakhand which you have not seen if you have not been to this side of Uttrakhand.
