Uttarakhand is a place that not only boasts of a scintillating view of the Himalayas but also exhibits a cultural ethos which speaks of a harmonic coexistence with nature. Uttarakhand is a popular pilgrimage site, as it is the originating spot of the Ganga and the Yamuna. And, there are a lot of adventure opportunities for all the adrenaline junkies out there. Triumph Expeditions has one of the best itineraries for a road trip in Uttarakhand. Let’s get into some details now.
We’d like to start off this glorious road trip in Uttarakhand by making our way to Rishikesh. But, we will be taking a small stop at Haridwar to get a look at all the greatness that everyone talks about.
Dotted with temples, ashrams and narrow lanes across the city, Haridwar is a famous Hindu temple town where millions of devotees come to take a dip in the holy Ganges.
Next on this road trip in Uttarakhand, we will be exploring Rishikesh. Rishikesh is a haven for all adventure enthusiasts out there. Rishikesh is known for its adventure activities, ancient temples, popular cafes and as the “Yoga Capital of the World”. All you adventure junkies pay attention! Be it white water rafting in the swift flowing Ganges or experiencing bungee jumping or flying fox- everything is possible here.
Kaudiyala is a popular rock climbing destination surrounded by dense forests. It also offers white river rafting tracks.
Also, we will be seeing the two iconic- Ram Jhula and Lakshmana Jhula which are the two great bridges to check out in Rishikesh and click pictures.
Next on this road trip in Uttarakhand, we will be heading towards the majestic Dehradun. Dehradun is an example of great scenic beauties.
Robber’s Cave is believed to be an abode of Lord Shiva and is very close to Sahastradhara or ‘The Thousandfold Springs’ in Uttarakhand. Its speciality is that river water flows out from the middle of the cave.
Malsi Deer Park is a heaven for nature lovers, the beauty of the place is highlighted by the rich flora and fauna. The park is a great point to unwind and break away from the busy life of the city.
Mindrolling Monastery is an architectural masterpiece with several sections, the monastery is a visual wonder. The monastery exudes beauty owing to its gardens, university complex and the tallest Stupa in Asia.
Khalanga War Memorial is a heritage monument in Dehradun, India, dedicated to the memory of Gurkha soldiers who fought the British in 1814 in the Battle of Nalapani
Rudraprayag is the next stop on this road trip in Uttarakhand. Situated on the banks of Mandakini River, Augustyamuni is a town dedicated to one of the most revered teachers in Indian mythology – Rishi Augustya. Augustyamuni is important for the Char Dham yatra.
Koteshwar Mahadev temple is a cave temple situated on the banks of River Alaknanda. It is a common belief among the devotees that Lord Shiva meditated in the caves while on his way to Kedarnath where one can witness the naturally formed idols.
We will be halting here for the night.
Auli is one of the most visited hill stations on this road trip in Uttarakhand. Dotted with the apple orchards, old oaks, and pine trees there is no dearth of natural beauty in Auli. Apart from skiing you can also go for numerous treks in the hills of Garhwal Himalayas and enjoy the spellbinding views of the snow-draped mountains.
The first of the famous Panch Prayags, Vishnuprayag is a wonderful place where River Alaknanda meets River Dhauliganga. The place is also home to many ashrams and the Vishnuprayag Temple while also being a great place for river rafting.
Auli is well known for being one of the best skiing spots in India. Do enjoy in the powdery white snow to your fullest.
There are ropeways in Auli which we will be availing too. These take you above through the majestic mountains with a beautiful view.
Auli Lake is considered as the highest man-made lake in the world. The government of Uttarakhand has developed this in view of creating artificial snow on the new ski slopes in the event of low snowfall.
Kausani is next on our road trip in Uttarakhand. The views are splendid here surrounded by some of the largest royal peaks. The panoramic snow-clad view of Himalayas in Kausani is dominated by Trisul, Nanda Devi and Panchuli peaks.
The Baijnath temple which is the heartbeat of the town and its most glorious possession. It is dedicated to Lord Shiva and was built around the 12th century.
Anasakti Ashram is also known as the Gandhi Ashram. It was during his stay here that Gandhiji’s annotations about Anasakti Yoga became known as ‘Geeta Anashakti Yoga’.
Kausani Tea Estates is one of the wonders of nature. Tea lovers will love this place as there are different shades of green along with aromatic tea leaves all around you.
Binsar is the next destination on this road trip to Uttarakhand.
Binsar is a small town in Uttarakhand known for the surreal beauty of the snow-laden Himalayan peaks. Established in 1988 mainly to protect the broad-leaved oak trees of Himalayas, the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary has now become a haven for more than 200 species of birds and almost half as many plants and animals.
The view of the skies from Zero Point is mesmerising. While it is rare that one location is equally beautiful during sunset and sunrise, this place is especially unique.
From Binsar, our next stop is Nainital- the true gem on this road trip in Uttarakhand.
There are a lot of things to check out in Nainital. We have to get started early. First of all are the beautiful lakes of Nainital- the main Nainital Lake, Bhimtal, Naukuchiatal are the main three we will be covering on this road trip in Uttarakhand. These lakes are as pretty as a picture. Also, there are boating facilities available here.
The grand Mukhteswar temple is identified as one of the eighteen most important temples dedicated to Lord Shiva in the Hindu scripture.
A fantastic picnic spot in its own right, one gets a complete view of the town of Nainital and its surrounding hills in the Kumaon region from the location of Tiffin Top.
Famous for its interconnected rocky caves, hanging gardens and the musical fountain, the Eco Garden is a set of six small caves in the shape of various animals.
As the name suggests, Snow View Point offers a panoramic view of the mighty Himalayas draped in a blanket of milky-white snow.
Jim Corbett National Park is our ultimate destination on our road trip in Uttarakhand. We will be going on a jungle safari the next day, but first let us explore all the lovely places there are to see.
Corbett Museum is a bungalow that earlier belonged to Jim Corbett- the well known tiger conservationist. The museum displays his memoirs.
Surrounded by dense forests and offering a very serene environment, Corbett waterfalls are a sight to witness, especially on full-moon nights.
Dedicated to one of Goddess Parvati’s incarnations, the Garjiya Devi Temple is perched atop a huge rock in the midst of Kosi River.
Today is the day when we go on one of the best jungle safaris of India. The Jeep Safari is the most popular safari choice at the park and is an available option to explore the Jim Corbett National Park. The likelihood of spotting the famed Bengal tiger is highest in this region.
There are even options for elephants safaris here.
Sadly, our trip ends right here. We are going to drive back to Delhi to catch a flight from there.
