Uttarakhand is one of the youngest states of India – it was only in the year 2000 that it split from the larger state Uttar Pradesh. Uttarakhand is paradise for any nature lover. It is blessed with majestic mountain peaks and glaciers, dense forests and flower filled valleys, raging rivers and waterfalls – and all of this breathtaking nature is largely untouched.
Nestling in the mountains you can find enchanting colonial hill stations with pleasant climate, as well as four sacred Hindu sites, drawing pious pilgrims. For adventure lovers there are endless possibilities to get their adrenaline rush: from skiing down the highest mountains, to rafting in rivers in the deepest valleys – Uttarakhand will never get boring.
