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.

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.
