You should consider getting an Uttarakhand tour package since summer’s almost here and taking off this hilly, cold land of travelers and natural beauty could be the perfect foil for the city’s sweltering heat. If you need convincing, here’s 6 Reasons why you should visit Uttarakhand:
- River Rafting
Rishikesh is quite a famous hub for rafting activities. Uttarakhand has many rivers like Alaknanda, Ganga, Bhagirathi, Pinder and Mandakini that make for exhilarating river rafting experiences. Uttarakhand packages can sometimes include a pre-arranged rafting experience or you could head downtown and ask around.
Uttarakhand is a paradise for trekkers. Backpackers from across the world visit various parts of the state to trek across the mountainous terrain and scenic views. From Kuari pass to Dayara Bugyal and Kedarkantha, there are many challenging and relatively easy treks that you can embark on.
- Bungee Jumping
As you may have already guessed, Uttarakhand is the ultimate place for adventure sports like bungee jumping. Mohan Chutti offers India’s first fixed platform bungee jumping spot hidden in the Shivaliks ahead of Rishikesh. A jump height of 83m followed by a drop zone with 2ft of water where you will be lowered, could be the most adrenaline filled experience of your life.
The Garhwal Himalays about 250km away from Rishikesh are a haven for skiers and offers breathtaking views of Himalayan peaks like Nanda Devi, Kamet and Dronagiri. Of all the skiing points, Auli is one of the best places to see in Uttarakhand for skiing and preferred by many for its panoramic views.
Besides adventure sports & natural beauty, several tourists visit Uttarakhand every year for yoga, meditation and the serenity that one can experience at one of Uttarakhand’s many ghats. The Ganga aarti at Triveni ghat is quite a spiritual experience. Gau ghat, Birla ghat and Ganesh ghat are some of the other ghats that you can visit.
Take one of the many mountain biking trails with a group or an unguided tour by yourself to explore the rivers, mountains, valleys and greenery. Become one with nature and cover flat and downhill ground quickly and get on foot to get through streams and uphill routes.
There’s so much to do in Uttarakhand and the best way to explore the best of everything is to opt for an Uttarakhand holiday package.
