Uttarakhand Tour

Rig Veda, the most ancient of the scriptures says, âthere is no happiness for him who does not travel. The fortune of him who is sitting sits, it rises when he rises, it sleeps when he sleeps, it moves when he moves. Therefore, Wander!â

A major portion of human history has been created by travels - treatises and historical accounts are filled with stories of men who travelled to conquer, to convert, to trade, to plunder and most importantly to quench their curiosity. Every mountain and ocean stimulated human curiosity to see and know beyond the mundane. This unremitting beckoning upset his sleep and logic but invigorated his fancy. The obsession for the unknown was an indivisible element of that fancy. And men, as always, have been known to live and die for their fancies.

Now, in the changed circumstances of the 21st century men still travel mostly when they get tired of routine circumstances or to put it more starkly whenever they find spare time from their demanding and hectic routines. There could be scores of other motives as well. Whatever may the motivation be, it is a truth that every journey does detune and retune oneâs intimate self. A whole lot ensues between embark and disembark. Some strings get tightened and some get loosened.

The Uttarakhand experience might leave you stranded for words, when someone asks you to define the simple word âbeautyâ. Beauty is so inherent to almost all things Uttarakhand stands for â the magnanimous Himalayas, the holiest of the rivers, the spiritual mystery, stunning landscapes, the incessantly colorful play of nature, enchanting history carved in ancient stones, a mesmerizing floral and faunal plethora and the simplest of the people. Myths, anecdotes and stories are part of every visual that unfolds itself to the eyes of the beholder.

The age-old Hindu traditions have always accorded highest esteem to the glory of the colossal and composed heights of the Himalayas which are spontaneously assumed to be the chosen consecrated residences of Gods. A whole lot of the Hindu lore sets out from this âLand of the Godsâ.

Pilgrimages to these heights dating back to more than 1500 years are found recorded in authentic documents and Uttarakhand still attracts millions of devout people who come here with the chaste objective of spiritual emancipation and revelation. Today, these mountains are no longer restricted to the religious or the spiritual â as a traveler one can get pleasure from mountaineering, trekking, mountain biking, rock climbing or simply strolling amongst the highest mountainous terrains in the world.

The streams that originate in the deepest hideaways of the glorious Himalayas of Uttarakhand flow on to feed rivers which have nourished a civilization that has been born and brought up in the Indo-Gangetic soil of the country. These rivers are not just water bodies of enormous proportions, but are also impressive streams commanding worship and reverence with their source in the holy crevices where gods and goddesses reside. The water of the holiest of all Hindu rivers, the Ganga, is believed to wash away and purge the body, mind and soul of all impurity.

The lush green forests of this region are home to an astounding multiplicity of flora and fauna, some of which fall into the category of endangered species. The wildlife bursts with hundreds and thousands of species, making an exploratory trip to Uttarakhand even more exciting, in the light of the fact that many species are yet to be discovered.

World-renowned mountain and wildlife institutes, national parks and forest reserves in this region pursue scientific research putting in enormous efforts to preserve and protect the landâs bounty, encouraging people to participate in this noblest of causes.
