Hill Stations in Uttarakhand

The ethereal beauty of Uttarakhand is known to all; the Himalayan state is blessed with picturesque places that once were the second home to British in India. The snow-clad mountain peaks and the green rolling hills are not the only elements adorning the silhouette of this northern India tourist destination but the undulating meadows, meandering rivers, lush forests, pristine lakes, and colonial era buildings, all contribute to the picture perfect beauty of Uttarakhand. The state boasts a number of hill stations that are loved by tourists across the country and make for the best holiday destinations for families as well as for honeymoon couples.

The Lake District, Nainital and the Queen of the Hills, Mussoorie are the two popular hill station holiday places. The picturesque Abbot Mount along with Kausani, the place with the 360-degree view of the Himalayas; Dhanaulti that looks heavenly when it snows; and the home of author Ruskin Bond, Landour are also the best places to visit in Uttarakhand. The state is also home to many beautiful places that are lesser-known, and thus, are pristine and ideal for enjoying adventure activities like trekking, mountain biking, and camping. Lansdowne boasts immaculate settings and so does Chaukori, Munsiyari and Binsar which is also home to a large number of birds and is an ideal destination for birding and wildlife sighting. The rustic Uttarakhand and the places that can only be reached by a trek are even more surreal and are perfect for hill station getaway.
