Uttrakhand being the devbhumi as they call it, wasn’t exactly what I had in mind before I started the adventure, at least to me it was all about the thrills it had to offer, the land where the Ganga originates to the mighty Nanda devi peak to the wildlife in the Corbett, well that’s what it was all about to me . So that’s where the planning began, my friends and I had about 10 days in hand to do some justice to the place. So obviously when in Uttrakhand you’ve gotta brace yourself for the craziest ride, I mean literally a crazy ride in the Ghats ;).
Whenever I start planning over a place I generally go about the maps and a lot of blogs as to check out nice places to stay, they also tell about the activites which we can go for, at a whole, a good insight to the region. Our plan included starting the journey from Bangalore to-> Dehradun->rishikesh->Auli->Binsar(Almora)->Jim Corbett->Dehradun->Bangalore. Also the reason we planned this trip to Uttrakhand in Feb was cause of the fact that rafting was still going on and it was also the skiing season in Auli.
Uttrakhand is a brilliant place to explore, but to me it is one for the underrated states, there is so much more to that place than most of the sites mention . Well anyways we planned this trip so that I could have a kickass b’day too and that it was ;) . Basically we planned this trip for 9-10 days and here is how we went about it .
