About Uttarakhand


This pleasant hill state is located on the foothills of Shivalik. The state is already a hub for Adventure Sports Tour lovers and is also home to many important Hindu pilgrimages. The state has immense potential to become a tourism hub as it has it all, be it nature, wildlife, adventure or pilgrimages. Uttaranchal was formerly a part of Uttar Pradesh and is one of the most entrancing regions of northern India. The land of Uttaranchal has natural beauty and bliss bestowed upon it and that's why it is also known as Dev Bhoomi (the land of Gods). Most of the famous rivers of India originate from here among which Ganga is known as the most sacred of all. Uttaranchal state is the ideal abode of snow with the Kumaon region in the east as well as Garhwal in the west.

If  it is peace of mind that you are looking for, then Uttaranchal is the place you should go. If you want to get close to wildlife, Jim Corbett National Park is the place for you.

Uttaranchal is surrounded by Uttar Pradesh on the western and southern sides and by Himachal Pradesh and Haryana on the North Western corner. The space on the North Eastern border is taken from Tibet and the state itself is a part of the Western Himalayan ranges.

Uttaranchal has 14 hilly districts combined into one. Flora and fauna are astonishing in all these districts. The state also has the Nanda Devi Peak. The most important thing is that Uttaranchal is covered by alpine forests that also have some endangered species nestled in their lap.
