Nestled on the foothills of the Himalayas, Uttarakhand has a lovely blend of natural beauty and culture. The state is blessed with wondrous reserves of nature with an abundance of mountain peaks, the beautiful Ganges and fertile Himalayan plains. Along with varied sites of interests, the state promises some of the most spectacular treks in the Himalayas. The state is also home to many forest reserves and sanctuaries that offer jeep safaris, elephant safaris, and more.
You arrive at the Jim Corbett National Park, India’s first National Park,that houses many species of animals and birds and is much reserved for sheltering Bengal Tigers.
Along with jungle safari, the major attractions for the tourists there are Garjia Temple which is dedicated to goddess Parvati, the bizarre Corbett Waterfalls, and the Corbett Museum which contains Jim Corbett’s memoirs, his personal belongings, antiques, and rare photographs.
Head to Nainital, a famous hill town named after the Goddess Naina Devi. It represents a concoction of Kumaon tradition, age-old beliefs of the hill folk, and British lore. This town is nestled amidst pine forests, a deep lake reflecting the greens of the surrounding hills. In Nainital, you can visit the Darshan point which offers beautiful glimpses of the mighty Himalayan range, Governor House, Cave Garden where you can explore multiple caves, enjoy a cable car ride, and more. While its numerous lakes and stunning mountain vistas offer a paradise for nature lovers, a journey to Nainital is a fairytale panoramic tour through the Himalayas.
