Draped in green and guarded by a wall of Himalayas, it isn’t a surprise to know that Uttarakhand is fondly referred to as the ‘Land of Gods’. The diverse and bountiful state that is now a popular tourist destination was brought to fame by the Beatles’ 1968 visit. People around the country have travelled far and wide for the much feted Ganga Aarti – a spiritual gathering around the sacred Ganges River.
The state’s lush Jim Corbett National Park also attracts thousands of visitors on a daily basis for a glimpse of the regal Bengal Tiger and other native wildlife thriving within its thick verdure. Uttarakhand takes you on a mythical, almost magical kind of a journey that promises you spectrums of travel you’ve never experienced before.
