Land of Gods
Called the "Land of Gods" thanks to its many temples and notable pilgrimage sites, Uttarakhand appeals to tourists interested in taking a spiritual journey through an awe-inspiring Himalayan landscape. A comprehensive Uttarakhand tour encompasses everything from colonial-era hill stations and thriving cities, to protected wildlife areas and holiday towns with every amenity under the sun. Many come to discover the dramatic mountainous terrain dotted with sacred lakes and rivers--featuring prominently in the great epics "Mahabharata" and "Ramayana--while others take a trip to Uttarakhand for a chance to spot snow leopards and Bengal tigers.
