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.

    • Trip to Uttarakhand

      Driver was driving at a pace which was not comfortable. We had to remind him to driver slower. Also driver at times did not drop us at the required points and droped us short of the point. He was not aware of the local points to visit . We had to search out the points . Many locations which were part of our schedule were left out by the driver . Like Dev prayag , rudra prayag etc . With a better driver we would have had a better trip.

      Dehradun, 19 days ago

    • Trip to Uttarakhand

      It was near to perfect trip, enthralling, Though the itinerary was decided by me, all bookings and reservations were taken care of by Doon world holidays, Whatever I asked for was ready on the ground, There were small issues here and there, but Sanjay, our first contact point solved them in a fraction of time and helped us continue the trip, We had a Panjabi Driver Gurupreet, a more talkative & entertaining guy, He took us where ever we wanted and neva said no to any kind of roads, But He was a bit slow driver though. Safari in Corbett should always be booked from the resort where you stay so that you can reach the forest zone gate before 5 30 am. We had our safari booked with private "Boon travels " (Fareed) in Ramnagar, The driver arrived at our resort at 6 and we reached the gate at 6 30 am and all tigers were gone deep already :-D. Farid was rude when I called him the morning to enquired about his safari driver. The overall trip arranged by Doon world holidays was good and up to the expectation of mine. Thank you, Indu (Organiser) and Sanjay (Manager) of Doon world holidays to make this happen, and Special thanks to Shaurya from Travel triangle to coordinate with different agents to help me find the best package.

    • Trip to Uttarakhand

      First thing first no Itinerary details of the trip was given to the driver. He has no idea where we are going. The Resort at the Mussoorie was Excellent, Peaceful & Beautiful. To my surprise my hotel at the Dehradun was not booked.I had to change 3 hotels at Dehradun that was painful & disgusting. I had booked a 3 star hotels but the condition of the hotel at Dehradun to which I was shifted was 3rd class & later I was shiffted to a business hotel that was not at par . The cab was good. The resort & weather at the Mussoorie was very good. The location of the hotel at Rishikesh was hard to get but it was worth it

    • Trip to Uttarakhand

      The driver was not local and was not aware of any routes either. We visited all points with the help of google maps and the driver did not speak hindi clearly either. The vehicle was not local which lead the driver to pay a lot of fine. However the hotels were good and clean and assistance was provided when asked for it.
