    Uttarakhand Weather

    We visited Uttarakhand in the month of May and the temperature must have been around 14°C – 30°C. The weather was somewhere in between hot and cold. But, the cool breeze was always there that made our vacation all the more pleasant.

    Highlights Of Our Family Trip To Uttarakhand

    Just like we imagined, we had a wonderful time in the lap of nature. Be it trying out various activities or visiting tourist attractions, we enjoyed all. Wish so much excitement, here we are sharing our best experiences.

    1. Paragliding In Nainital

    Adventure was something we were all looking forward to and what could be better than paragliding. Even though it was a little scary initially, but the trained staff made sure that all our doubts were cleared. All in all, it was one of a kind experience for all of us. Paragliding is not for light hearted people, but all of us enjoyed it immensely. Frankly we all are so busy in our metropolitan lives that we miss to get into an adventure like this.

    2. Enjoying Safari In Jim Corbett Jungle

    Next, we visited the Jim Corbett National Park and I must say the jungle was absolutely lush green and beautiful. We were able to see different animals and birds, but missed the tiger sightings by seconds on two different occasions. We also did a small trekking on a hill which ultimately took us to very old Shiv temple in Kausani. After taking blessings at the temple, we went to a local restaurant where we had utterly delicious food.

    Shopping In Uttarakhand

    NWe were enjoying every moment of our family trip to Uttarakhand and shopping was also something we thoroughly enjoyed. We bought various items like warm clothes, vastu materials from Wangli Arts etc. Handicrafts were also something that we bought in abundance. There are quite a few markets in Uttarakhand where travelers can find all these things. Tibetan Market and Bada Bazaar are two of the best markets where one could buy plenty woolens, handicrafts, and other souvenirs.

    Hotels In Uttarakhand

    On our 8 days & 7 nights trip, we stayed at 4 different hotels. Our first accommodation was Corbett View Resort which was an average resort and the food that was served to us was also up to the mark. Next in Kausani, we stayed at Natures Valley Resort which was great in every sense. However, we felt that our accommodation in Auli which was Blue Poppy Resort Auli needed a bit more cleanliness and better staff management. But, the meals served at the resort were utterly delicious. For the last 2 days that we spent in Nainital, we accommodated at Royal Rossette which also turned out to be a great experience for all of us.
