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.

Megha's 3 days trip to Uttarakhand

Overall trip experience was poor .Before booking ,they provided us a schedule of online payments ,still we were receiving frequent calls regarding payment ,and also as it is mentioned for online payments ,they were asking for money on different account and with different payment mode .Before payment was done they were in continuous contact with us but once the trip was started ,our travel agent said she is no longer our point of contact and shared some other guy's number ,who was not picking the call from start to end of trip .Regarding hotels ,the bookings were not properly done due to which we faced several issues .Even though cab was booked but payment was not done .Overall ,there was huge difference between the number of calls we received for payment and the number of calls for customer support or help.
