Things to do in Uttarakhand

A honeymoon in Nainital is incomplete without enjoying boating in Naini Lake with your better half. An early morning trek to Tiffin Top or Guano Hills will make your stay in Nainital more memorable. Shopping at Mall Road, exploring Cave Gardens, and visiting temples are other experiences worth having in Nainital. Ever wish to spend a night in a camp with a majestic backdrop of Himalayan summits? Camping at Chakrata and Binsar during summer will make you want to come back again. Dhanaulti and Kanatal are two other popular sites for adventure activities including camping in Uttarakhand. Those who are planning their honeymoon in Uttarakhand in winter should make a note of Auli. A picturesque holiday resort near Joshimath, Auli is famous for skiing and other winter sports. Travellers in Auli can enjoy a cable car ride, three kilometres in length, that provides jaw-dropping views of snow-covered mountains.

Rishikesh is where travellers can conquer their demons and fears. White water rafting in Rishikesh is a popular sport for adrenaline junkies. If this doesn’t give you enough rush, try bungee jumping in Rishikesh, which remains one of the most unique things to do in Uttarakhand. Haridwar is where you can wash away your sins and weariness. Attending the famous Ganga Aarti at Har ki Pauri in evening will certainly elevate your soul to the heavens. The Garhwal division is a hotspot of adventure activities in Uttarakhand, especially in summer. Whether it is trekking in Valley of Flowers National Park, trekking to Roopkund in Nanda Devi National Park, pilgrimage to Kedarnath and Badrinath, camping in Gangotri, there are plenty of thrilling experiences travellers can have in Uttarakhand. Pithoragarh is a hub of paragliding in Uttarakhand.

    Shital's 6 days trip to Uttarakhand

    The trip started with good experience the stay in haridwar, joshimatha,auli but the second last day & last trip we really had bad experience because the stay we got in chopta was really scary as advised in the iternary that was 200mts down but it was 650 mts down where we requested the Eden camp owner we want to change camp but he didn't do it ND even saw skull nd bones thrown near to kitchen dn we thought we cannot stay back there,thanks to our driver RAVI he was very helpful nd supporting all around the trip he helped to search hotel even the same situation happened in Rishikesh they gave stay as Samridhi Retreat when we reached the hotel they said there are no bookings we noonetried travel agency where noone receiving call to Inform what next step...it was like mental torture and harrashment for the tourist...later we searched hotel on our own and stayed back in Rishikesh. PLEASE MAKE SURE THE BOOKINGS AS IT IS MENTIONED IN ITERNARY IS NOT SAME..

    Anjali Gupta

    Ahmedabad

    Anjali's 6 days trip to Uttarakhand

    we booked the trip for uttarkhand. The trip was did not meet our expectations. The places as per itinerary were not covered. on the first day itself confusion was created as to which terminal to pick up due to which there was a delay of 3 hours and as a result of which our first destination ie mussoorie was affected and we could see only on viewpoint. the contact person Mr Deepak was not cordial and did things as per his wish.

    Arun's 5 days trip to Uttarakhand

    Every thing is Good in our trip but if agency arrange a local cab it may very good to us. Bcoz the driver has lack of knowledge abt our visit places. Missouri is the best part of our trip

    Akshay Bhagatnov

    Mumbai

    Akshay's 6 days trip to Uttarakhand

    We booked our trip with Agent Trip Birbal through travel traingle for 6 days 5 nights. We made sure our plan will.be customized and as said by travel traingle and our travel agent they customized our plan according to our needs and made sure everything went as per plan. Agent Trip Birbal was really good and we got everything what we were promised. Also the driver of our cab was really good, with very good driving skills and was really helpful. We were going to miss out some points but our driver made sure that we got to see our planned tourist spots. The hotels provided by our Travel agent were good. especially Corbett Treat Resort and The mountain Quail ( Mussoorie) stood out in food, room, cleanliness. The shivaay hotel in rishikesh was decent one. If anyone wants to go to Uttarakhand , i would suggest go with Agent Trip birbal but make sure to customize your own plan and get on mail by the agent that they will provide all the services that you asked for. Travel Traingle staff was also good to us but a problem that i observed was ,our trip guide Kocab Hammad's number was switched off most of the time and that definitely is not a good impression. If anything had gone wrong how we were supposed to contact our trip guide from travel traingle? Please take this into account. Rest all was perfectly organised. You can trust Travel Triangle.

    Hetal Parikh

    Mumbai

    Hetal's 3 days trip to Uttarakhand

    The experience of booking the trip for my parents through travel triangle was not good in terms of reliability. They outsourced itvto some agent called tripsailor who was based in Delhi and the agents were very rude. Secondly none of the mobile numbers givenb to us to contact worked as they were out of reach or temporarily disconnected.Before the trip u felt i was duped for the money as they were not responsible to contact us .I am really disappointed with this kind of service.1 day before the trip i gad to make 10 calls back and forth to tripsailor and travel triangle.
