Uttarakhand Travel Guide and Tourism

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.
