Roorkee Tourism & Travel Guide

Roorkee serves no touristic purpose unless you're on your way to the hill stations of Uttarakhand (Dehradun, Mussoorie onward). The place is well known among techies across the country for its renowned Indian Institute of Technology, which boasts of having the oldest engineering department in India and admittedly has a magnificent 25 acre campus, which dates back to the 19th century. Another saving grace of this city is the Roorkee Group of Museums and Archives, an army museum established in 1978, containing voluminous documents, historic books, paintings and also a display of weapons used by the Indian Armed Forces. If you happen to be desperately looking for a place to beat the summer heat, Crystal World makes for a fun trip with its artificial pools and water swings. The city doesn't really slack in culinary style, for restaurants such as Pi, Olive, Sarovar Portico and Vicky Family Dhaba are well known for their Indian and international dishes.

Dharun, Roorkee, Uttarakhand 247667, India
The day was almost spent in packing the bags and buying food stuffs. We traveled in the month of November and as expected there was no snowfall but the temperature was as low as -4 at night. It would have definitely snowed there had the weather got worse. It is advised to get yourself as many layers as possible because temperature drops to negative . We bought a lot of food as there are no shops once you start trekking.Day 1 : (Roorkee – Dehradun – Uttarkashi )

The capital city of India is a glorious concoction of the old and the new. Temples that are centuries old, archaic Muslim quarters, and modern residencies, all exist alongside each other. Home to over a crore people, Delhi’s tourism is a treasure trove of historic gems, gardens, museums and a thriving food culture. Travel to the metropolis for the vibrant bazaars of Chandni Chowk that give way to Lutyens’ New Delhi, that is the pulse of the city. Among the numerous places to visit in Delhi city, for an insight into the magnificent Mughal era, go to the 16th century Humayun’s Tomb, the towering sandstone mosque of Jama Masjid, and experience the sound and light show at Red Fort. Tourists can spend mornings at the extravagant Akshardham Temple and evenings at the Hazrat Nizam-ud-din Dargah (shrine) that boasts of sufi music and delicious kebabs. Another popular attraction of Delhi city is its pulsating markets that from baubles to handicrafts, sell everything you can possibly think of. Those who have travelled to Delhi for its particular brand of food, won’t be disappointed. From hole-in-the-wall eateries and local student cafes in North Delhi to lavish restaurants and bars in South Delhi, there is no dish or cuisine you won’t find here. A huge incentive for Delhi’s tourism is its variety of public transport, wherein the Delhi Metro is the cheapest and easiest way to get around the city.
