Uttarakhand Tourism & Travel Guide

A typical frame of Uttarakhand’s hills will feature a sea of valleys dotted with thatch-roofed homes, pine and deodar trails, winding roads and a sprinkling of a temple. The state is bordered by Nepal on the east and Tibet on the north. Wildlife enthusiasts should head to Jim Corbett National Park for a jungle safari, which is a pretty popular place to visit in Uttarakhand. Adventure seeking travellers can trek through the trails of the Valley of Flowers, Roopkund and Chopta-Chandrashila or ski through Auli, go rafting in Rishikesh and much more. For tourists on the search of spiritual exploration, Uttarakhand has plenty of places such as Gangtori, Yamunotri, Badrinath, Haridwar and Rishikesh. For a quintessentially Himalayan escapade, head to Chakrata with its magnificent view of the snow-laden rhododendron forests and set out for small day trips to Deoban, Koti and Kanasar while you are there. For something off the beaten path, drive to Tehri Dam, through a legion of tiny tribal villages or make your way to Munsyari where you will come across barking deers, wild boars, gorals, deers and a variety of Himalayan birds.

Ukhimath-Chopta Road, Rudra Prayag
Also known as the Devariya or Deoriya, this is a lake at an altitude of over 2000 metres above the sea level. It is about 3 kilometres uphill from the villages of Mastura and Sari. Jeeps are available for a fantastic tour from Ukhimath to the Sari village via the village of Mastura. The surrounding sceneries of lush greenery and the backdrop of the snow covered mountain peaks including the Chaukhamba looks divine from here. You can also trek till this place and arrangements can be made for forest safaris and even overnight camping over here. The temples of Tungnath and Chandrasila, both dedicated to the worship of Lord Shiva are visited together with the deoria Taal.
