An overview of Uttarakhand
People often call Uttarakhand “Dev Bhoomi,” which means “the land of gods.” Since Uttarakhand broke away from Uttar Pradesh in 2000, it has developed its own identity. The region’s own languages, history, cultures, and river valleys, which are home to interesting micro-civilizations, have all come together to make a state that is not only unique in its geography but also in its history and spirituality. Uttarakhand is northeast of Delhi and is surrounded by Tibet and Nepal. The Kumaon and Garhwal regions rise from the sub-Himalayan plains. The snow-capped peaks of Uttarakhand are some of the most beautiful in the inner Himalayas. They form a spine that ends at Nanda Devi, the second-highest peak in the country at 25,643 feet. The dramatic landscape of the Himalayan state is made up of blue lakes, frothy rivers, and glaciers that feed some of Hinduism’s holiest rivers, like the Ganga, Yamuna, Mandakini, and Alakananda, and snowy peaks, some of which are the setting for the most popular pilgrimages. The high-altitude drives and hikes take you to some amazing pilgrimage sites that have been used as the setting for Hindu epics.
The place where Shiva and Parvati got married and where the legend of the famous conservationist Jim Corbett lives on in the famous tiger park that bears his name. Then, when the Beatles came to Rishikesh, it became a place where people from all over the world who were interested in spirituality and yoga could meet. Uttarakhand is a traveler’s paradise because of its variety and because it is the state with the second-highest number of tigers. It is also home to the Chota Char Dham sites and the snowy Himalayan peaks.
To get the most out of your trip, choose one of the Tripaone Uttarakhand tour packages that takes you to the best places, like hill stations, treks, and spiritual sites.
Tripone will show you that Uttarakhand has a lot of places to see.
Things to Do on an Uttarakhand Trip
- Paragliding: A glider is similar to a miniature aircraft without a motor that uses the laws of aerodynamics to fly. The primary component of the glider is a wing made of fabric that is woven over a thin frame. The harness you’ll be wearing features controls for changing the speed and direction and is fastened to the wing. The majority of the state of Uttarakhand has a hilly topography, which means there are countless options for paragliding there. The valleys below become perfect for landings, and the hills serve as natural takeoff points.
- While you’re here to take in the state’s natural beauty, you can also try Uttarakhand paragliding since the sport is offered at several locations here. The state is home to many clubs with qualified trainers and managers. You will receive an introductory briefing on the different facets of the adventure sport before your flight. The glider, its controls, takeoff and landing procedures, navigational skills, and how to alter the direction or angle of attack while in flight will all be covered. You should ask your instructor any questions you have during the lessons so that you fully understand the sport.
- If you’re planning a journey to this holy city, the River Ganga in Rishikesh is the ideal location for an exhilarating rafting adventure. The best rafting experience may be had at Shivpuri, which is close to Ram Jhula. The full course can be finished in two to three hours.
- While moving across the neighboring mountain ranges at breakneck speed via four stages, you can experience something extraordinary. During your activity, you can choose to be with a trained professional, and all safety measures will be taken.

The capital of Uttarakhand is Dehradun.
The capital of the Himalayan state of Uttarakhand is Dehradun, which is about 255 kilometers north of Delhi and at a much lower elevation of 2296 feet. This is where the foothills of the Himalayas start to rise dramatically, so the weather in Dehradun is neither too hot nor too cold. Dehradun is in the middle of the 120-kilometer-long Doon Valley. To its east is the Ganges River in Rishikesh, and to its west is the Yamuna River. People are getting more and more busy in Dehradun, especially around the market near the Victorian clock tower and the main roads like the Rajput and Gandhi roads. But the city’s best thing is its high-quality basmati rice, which is quickly becoming a specialty.
Best Time to visit Uttarakhand
Uttarakhand is in the Himalayas, so the weather is always somewhere between nice and cold. This is one reason why so many people from the plains come to visit. In the summer, between April and June, you can go to the mountain state to get away from the heat of the plains and enjoy the peaceful countryside. In the winter, between December and March, you can go there to ski. Higher up, it snows all the way through the end of February. On the other hand, monsoon season is not a good time to go there because the heavy rains cause many of the rivers and glaciers to overflow and flood.
- Uttarakhand in the summer: From April to June is a great time to go to hill stations like Mussoorie, Almora, Nainital, Kausani, and Ranikhet because you can get away from the heat of the plains and enjoy the cooler weather. At its cafes, Jim Corbett National Park is a great place to see the peaks, take pictures, eat at its cafes, and even go on a jungle safari to look for big cats. Chardham yatra also starts in the summer. You can start with Ganga aarti in Haridwar, then go to the town of Rishikesh, which has a lot of different cultures, and then go to Gangotri, Yamunotri, Badrinath, and Kedarnath. As the snow melts, hiking trails can be used to get up steep hillsides and to these pilgrimage sites. White water rafting is also fun in the summer in places like Kaudiyala and Shivpuri, which are north of Rishikesh. Mountaineering, mountain biking, and camping are also fun activities for someone who likes to try new things.
- Uttarakhand in the monsoon: When the monsoon comes at the end of June and stays until September, the area gets a lot of rain. The prices of hotels are pretty low right now, and if you don’t mind staying inside most of the time, you can get your favorite hotel for almost nothing. At this time of year, flash floods and landslides happen quite often, so it can be risky to go on the more difficult Chardham yatra at this point. Even though it’s nice to watch the rain from your hotel window, you should try to avoid the monsoon.
- In the winter: The air gets colder and crisper in November. It’s a sign that winter has come to the Himalayan state. In Uttarakhand, winters can be very cold and last until March. In the high mountain areas, temperatures can drop below zero. Even though this is also the best time to go to Auli, a winter wonderland, and ski on its slopes. Winter is a great time to visit places like Nainital, Mukteshwar, Almora, Landour, and others that are lower in the mountain range. even though it is likely to snow in Mukteshwar at the height of the season. You can even go on a safari in the Jim Corbett or Rajaji National Parks. If you want to watch birds, this is a great time of year to go to Binsar. It is also a good time to do yoga at an ashram in Rishikesh and walk up the Lakshman Jhula in the evenings. Rishikesh is known as the “yoga capital of the world,” and every year in March, the International Yoga Festival is held there.
