Places to visit in Uttarakhand
In Uttarakhand, there is always something unforeseen lurking around at every turn of the road to mesmerise travellers. Be it a pilgrimage or a honeymoon, there are plenty of Uttarakhand tourist places that are ideal to plan a trip to the hills. Raj-era hill stations, Hindu pilgrimage sites, spectacular national parks, and honeymoon resorts make up some of the top places to visit in Uttarakhand.
Robber’s Cave, Tapkeshwar Temple, Sahastradhara, Paltan Bazaar, Mindrolling Monastery, and Lachhiwala are popular places to visit in Dehradun. Nestled in lush green hills, Mussoorie offers a splendid vista of the Doon Valley. Located 34 kilometres from Dehradun, Mussoorie is famous for its comfy bookstores, English weather, and sheer natural beauty.
If ever there was a place custom-made for discovering your inner self, Rishikesh has to be it. This spiritual town is where the West learns about the East. Rishikesh is famous for being the Yoga capital of the world. White water rafting in Rishikesh, near Shivpuri to be precise, is an experience like no other.
Dotted with numerous temples and ashrams, Haridwar is a magnet for spiritual seekers and devotees beginning their Char Dham pilgrimage: Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri, and Yamunotri. It is where the Ganges enters the plains of India.
When you’re listing famous tourist destinations in Uttarakhand, Nainital always finds its place among the top places. Naini Lake, Tiffin Top, Snow View Point, Raj Bhawan, and Naina Devi Temple are major points of interest in Nainital. Famous for its panoramic views, Kausani ranks among the best tourist places in Uttarakhand. Besides its scenic splendour, travellers gather here to go on a trek to Pindari Glacier and Kafni Glacier. Jim Corbett National Park – the oldest national park in India – is a popular haunt for wildlife enthusiasts.
Comprising 520 square km of area, the park is home to Bengal tigers, elephants, leopards, Himalayan black bears, deer, buffaloes, and around 580 bird species. The Nanda Devi National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is home to the highest mountain located entirely within India. The Gangotri National Park and Govind Pashu Vihar National Park and Sanctuary are ideal to spot alpine flora and fauna. Trekking in Valley of Flowers National Park can be most rewarding between July and September.
Auli is a popular ski resort in Uttarakhand visited by scores of honeymooners in winter. Binsar and Chakrata are up-and-coming hill stations currently famous for offbeat camping opportunities. Dhanaulti and Kanatal are arguably the most popular sites for camping in Uttarakhand. Almora is a picturesque hill station and a perfect alternative for Nainital. If you’re aching to try paragliding in Uttarakhand, then Pithoragarh is the best to be. Jageshwar, Mukteshwar, Ranikhet, Chamoli, Chamba, and Lansdowne are other famous places to visit in Uttarakhand in summer.

Shipra's 4 days trip to UttarakhandOverall experience was good but the candel light dinner which was arrange by the hotel was worst
Vijay's 7 days trip to UttarakhandTrip was very well managed by Shivangi. Kudos to her. Hotels were good esply Rishikesh and Joshimath. Hotel Staff in Chopta were so caring. Driver was good throughout the journey. Great experience!!
Vishwesh's 4 days trip to UttarakhandWorst experience with Amazing Uttarakhand. The travel agent Neha-7037168170 and Abhishek, both are greedy ducks of money. They promised us hotel near 3km from Mall Road in Nainital and gave 16km far. When we asked for so, they were cutting our call and asked only for money. For the entire trip, they kept on fighting and we explained them that what they promised and what they gave is different, so we need compensation for that. And they refused for that and said at all involved partners that, DO NOT LET THEM CHECKOUT UNTIL THEY PAY MONEY, DO NOT START CAB UNTIL THEY PAY MONEY. Worst people. Don't ever buy package from these people. Fake and fraud people.
Amit's 5 days trip to UttarakhandHelped us plan our trip to Uttarakhand, Shivam was available 24/7 on call whenever we needed help. He was able to re-plan the trip without any problem when we decided to change one of the destinations. When we did not like one of the accommodations he pro-actively changed it without hesitation. I would definitely recommend him for planning your next trip.
Sumedha's 4 days trip to UttarakhandGreat experience. Our Driver is the best human being we ever met, staff of the hotel is too good, Hotel is very awesome, food is good and delicious. All the people we met there was very nice and supportive.
Mayur's 7 days trip to UttarakhandIt was our first experience with 1 Point 5 Billion Inches Travel Co. Sandeep Bharadwaj has been associated through out the trip with us and he made sure he understands our requirements and provides a tailored itinerary accordingly to us all. The trip went smooth from start to end, no major hiccups. Sandeep was available to sort all the issues / confusions as and when needed. The accommodation and transport arrangements were exactly as promised (couple of them were even better than what we might have underestimated initially). Sandeep is bright and aspiring person in the field and he makes sure he provides you best of his services.
Ashutosh's 8 days trip to UttarakhandHotels were not that great just ok. The trip wasn't organised orderly. We didn't knew about all the places that were selected for visiting. Hotel food was average. Overall I can't recommend to use travel triangle. Visiting auli was a good memory in the whole trip.
Utkarsh's 6 days trip to UttarakhandIt was wonderful experience and had a lovely time out there. UK is amazing and gorgeous. The hotel could have been better like Joshimath or Rishikesh. There are no complaints
Deven's 6 days trip to UttarakhandThe trip was executed excellently as per the plan. But due to travel distance between the multiple destinations and while returning it got a bit hectic. Over all experience with hotels and Cab was impressive, but overpriced which I realised later on the trip.
Rajesh Mukundan Menon
Rajesh's 5 days trip to UttarakhandMy recent Uttarakhand trip covering Mussorie, Auli, Corbett and Nainital was an amazing experience. Krishna Holidays took care of all the arrangements right from my pick up from Delhi to dropping me off back in Delhi. Nisha from Krishna Holidays is a wonderful organiser and she has been on top of it right from day one. My initial trip was booked in April'2020 however due to the pandemic I had to reschedule it to December and Krishna Holidays took care of all of that without any issues. Due to the current situation I had requested them to work around the vehicle arrangement from Delhi as I wasn't comfortable using a Delhi vehicle. Mr. Nitin from Krishna Holidays personally came in his own vehicle to pick me up from Delhi Airport and dropped me at Dehradun where our Innova Crysta was already waiting to commence the planned journey from thereon. Following are some of their key highlights. 1. Excellent customer service right from start to end 2. Giving that personal touch professionally 3. Excellent Itinerary planning 4. Good hotel selection (could be a little better though at a couple of places) 5. Flexible and accommodative I would highly recommend Krishna Holidays and I myself will surely go with them again for all my future vacations as well. Huge thanks to Nisha and Krishna Holidays for making this trip wonderful and a memorable vacation.
