It’s said that when the mountains call, you must pack your bags and leave. Especially if it’s the Land of the Gods that beckons you. Most travellers claim that describing Uttarakhand tourism is difficult owing to its varied landscapes, which changes dramatically as you move from one town to another. Where the holy town of Rishikesh is centred around River Ganga, the valley of Dehradun is surrounded by thick forests and the mesmerising hill station of Kausani promises rows of vibrant meadows.
Uttarakhand tourism has attracted spiritual seekers, adventure enthusiasts and nature lovers for decades. The state was first part of Uttar Pradesh before becoming a separate state in the year 2000. This separation drastically boosted Uttarakhand tourism owing to increased awareness about the many places to see in the state.
A year-round destination, you can explore Uttarakhand tourism any time of the year. However, if you are planning a trekking or camping trip, we recommend heading out during the summer months. In winter, most parts of the state are inaccessible owing to heavy snowfall.
Spiritual seekers have always frequented Uttarakhand as it is home to the four Char Dhams – Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath. Every year, thousands of visitors head to these beautiful spots to seek blessings and admire the beautiful sights which are a part of Uttarakhand tourism.
