seekers to restore their sanity. The British made several summer retreats in Uttarakhand that are now

transformed into holiday towns frequented by honeymooners throughout the year. The state has long been

a fancy of travellers of all kind.

Tourism in Uttarakhand is all about perilous pleasures. The state of Uttarakhand seems to have holiest of

holy Hindu pilgrimages, silky meadows on treeless hills, snow-covered mountains towering above glacial

lakes, and Raj-era hill stations. Lofty mountains, quaint hamlets, unspoilt culture, and clear night skies

will make you want to linger a little longer in Uttarakhand. A bevy of tourist attractions in Uttarakhand

can make your vacation of any duration worthwhile.

Nature is a perfect remedy to balance the human senses. Garhwalis and Kumaonis have stark differences

in their culture, but they share a common bond of the Himalayas. The Garhwal division is dotted with

several Hindu temples and visited by thousands of devotees in summer. Garhwal is also home to the

headwaters of two of the most sacred rivers in India: the Ganges and Yamuna. The Kumaon division is

speckled with sparsely populated hamlets and hill stations awaiting their next batch of honeymooners

every season. Be it Garhwal or Kumaon, the hills of Uttarakhand can heal any weary soul.
