Uttrakhand

The north Indian state of Uttarakhand holds beauty in almost everything that it has to offer - the majestic Himalayas, the holiest of rivers, the spiritual mystery, beautiful landscapes, the continuously multi-coloured play of nature, enthralling history engraved in old stones, a mesmerising floral and faunal abundance, and the simplest of people. Every image that emerges before the beholder's eyes contains myths, anecdotes, and stories. Because of the numerous Hindu temples and pilgrimage sites, Uttarakhand, also known as Uttaranchal, is commonly referred to as the Devbhumi, or Land of the Gods. Uttarakhand provides travellers with a wide range of options for tourism and adventure activities.
