After 3-4 months of planning, research, negotiating, finalizing itinerary and advance booking the flights, hotels, ground transports and transfers finally the day came when me,my wife and my parents, all of us together boarded the late night flight to Delhi from Pune. I was excited, nervous at the same time very much eager for this much planned family trip. Actually it was first long trip to North together that i and Megha (my wife) had planned for my parents and we wanted everything to be perfect and by gods grace it turned out to be a trip to remember.
The main objective of this blog is to encourage youngsters, budding travelers to help plan and go places in India which are really a gem and should be visited at least once, such trips make us realise how lucky we are that we are born in this country and just make us a proud citizen.So this blog can be used as a guide for planning your trip to Uttarakhand to cover places like Rishikesh, Mussorie, Joshimath and Auli in Uttarakhand with details of places to visit, things to do, hotel, ground and air transfer options with their cost and contact details.
Uttarakhand- Dev Bhoomi as it is popularly called is actually a paradise on earth but when we think of Himalayas we generally think of Himachal and Kashmir but Uttarakhand is equally as impressive as both and quite unexplored to an extent.Hence the commercialisation is still less especially in places like Joshimath, Auli.
Some Must Do before you Plan your trip to Uttarakhand:
1. Carry a good camera , Warm Clothing, Strong Grip and Well Tread Shoes, Warm Socks, Battery bank to keep mobile charges
2. Book your flight, train tickets well in advance 3-5 months if possible
3. Book your hotels in 2-3 months advance as the number of rooms is relatively lesser than the commercialised hotels in other places
4. The crucial part of the journey is the Ground Transport as your life/journey mood is literally in his hands.
