As there is a craze among the city dwellers to go abroad there is equally a great trend in the rural people to go and settle in the cities.

Actually it is not their will it is because their life has compelled them to do so.

Recently, I came across the stinking situations in one of the villages of Uttarakhand, where globalisation baffled over its tourism.

The untold story of Gorchha:-

Beautiful Shivalik Hills

A beautiful place in the Shivalik mountain ranges of Himalayas in district Dehradun, this astounding place has limitless exquisiteness, traditional houses which are beautifully carved and crafted in wood .

This ethnic resort in the mountain is losing this recognition.

The biggest problem this area is facing is lack of employment. And this is leading to migration of people of this area to the nearby cities for getting some income. But with this migration, the culture of this place is also migrating and disappearing day by day.

So when a person of this village told me about this situation, I was thinking of some solution.

A question that hung in the air :- how to promote its tourism.

The question is simple, but the answer is not.

It's not always right on our part to blame government for each and everything. Sometimes the situations in our hands also.

Why it always happens that when we think of Uttarakhand, we always think of Dehradun, Mussoorie, Rishikesh and all these popular destinations.

No doubt these are beautiful places, but the actual serenity of life lies In The villages like Gorchha .
