How to reach Uttarakhand
For those looking forward to their next venture or adventure in the Himalayas, it doesn’t get better than Uttarakhand. Travelling solo or with your loved ones with a bite of crisp mountain air and murmur of gurgling freshwater streams is hardly unmatched by any travel destination in India. The Kumaon region makes up the southeastern districts in Uttarakhand while Garhwal region comprises northwestern area.
Almora is the cultural capital of Kumaon region while the Garhwal region is centred by the state capital Dehradun. High-altitude roads, or whatever passes for it, offer thrilling experiences to out-of-state travellers. The state of Uttarakhand is easily accessible by any mode of transport: road, rail, and air. Travellers can book their choice of transport to plan their Uttarakhand holidays in advance. Looking up on how to reach Uttarakhand? Here is our detailed information:
Popular places to visit in Uttarakhand include Dehradun, Nainital, Mussoorie, Rishikesh, and Jim Corbett National Park. The state is also the site of several pilgrimage places which are thronged by thousands of devotees. Each of these destinations is well-connected with major metro cities in India.
There are two domestic airports in Uttarakhand. The Jolly Grant Airport (DED) in Dehradun is located 22
kilometres from the city centre. It is served by regular nonstop flights from Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai,
and Chennai. Alliance Air, IndiGo, and Jet Airways provide commercial flights to and from Dehradun.
Pantnagar Airport (PGH) serves as a gateway to hill stations like Nainital, Ranikhet, and Almora. The
distance between Jim Corbett National Park and Pantnagar Airport is about 120 km.
Reaching Nainital or Dehradun by rail is the cheapest and perhaps the most convenient way to visit. The
train station in Kathgodam, 35 km from Nainital, is the last terminus of the North East railways.
Kathgodam train station has rail connectivity with Delhi, Dehradun, and Howrah (Kolkata). Trains to
Dehradun railway station come from Delhi, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, and Punjab. Jan
Shatabdi Express, Dehradun Express, Doon Express, and Nanda Devi Express are major trains serving
One of the main reasons to visit the hills in Uttarakhand is the joy that comes from the time spent on the
road itself. The state has more than 1,328 km of national highways and 1,543 km of state highways. The
Uttarakhand Transport Corporation runs around 1000 buses in and out of the state.
Haridwar and Rishikesh are connected to Delhi by NH 34 and NH 7 passes through Dehradun with
Badrinath. Highways 109 and 309 interlink Nainital, Almora, and Jim Corbett National Park. The
proposed Char Dham Highway will connect all four major pilgrimage sites in Uttarakhand. Taxi rentals

Trip to Uttarakhandthis is my Nth tour with travel triangle and my 3rd trip with TripSailer. To be very honest i was very satisfied with a trip with tripsailer before and never even considered anyone else. But the hotels were not that good. The homestay in auli didnt have proper doors that closed, i had asked for a romantic dinner and that was promised and paid for but did not happen. When after the trip i asked for the same, they said there was some lack of communication and they will give the money back. but it has been almost a month from the trip and we still do not have the money back. repeated communication trial with the travel agency has failed and they are just deliberately not replying to any calls or messages right now.
