The Chamoli District in Uttarakhand is widely known for its splendid hill stations and temples. It also has a historical significance since it is the birthplace of the Chipko movement. This place offers tourists a variety of options for pilgrimages and adventurous treks. Thousands of pilgrims make their way for a spiritual treat to Badrinath, Kedarnath, Tungnath and Joshimath, each year. These places lie at a short distance away from Chamoli. The Teej festival is popularly celebrated here with great charm and fervour. Vedni-Bugyal, Auli-Bugyal, Gvaaldam Gurson-Bugyal, Devaria-Taal, and Roopkund are excellent spots to carry out adventurous treks.
Since Chamoli is situated on the southern slopes of the outer Himalayas, chances of monsoon currents entering the valley are high. Rainfall is at its peak from June to September and might be risky to undertake a voyage to Chamoli during this time of the year. The rainfall gifts Chamoli with a floral attire, thereby, christening it the region of Joshimath as the ‘Valley of Flowers’. The national park located here is also named as the Valley of flowers national park.
Accommodation facilities include hotels, resorts and guest houses which are available for tourists and pilgrims. Chamoli is well connected to other towns by road. Rishikesh is the nearest railway station and Jolly Grant, the nearest airport.
