Nature & Eco
1) UNESCO Heritage Site
2) Rivers & Lakes
All civilizations have drawn life out of rivers. Rivers have played the most important part in the survival and prosperity of all civilizations in human history.
The rivers of Uttarakhand are no exception in the wholesome bounty they bestow as they flow down mountainous slopes, into narrow gorges and widening into the plains. Born in the deep glacial chambers of the magnificent Himalayas, the mighty rivers of Uttarakhand have brought people together and nurtured their way of life.
3) Mountain & Glaciers
Cozily snuggled in the arms of the great Himalayas, the state of Uttarakhand has time and again been referred to as 'Dev Bhumi' or 'The Land of Gods'. This accounts for the numberless Hindu and Buddhist lore associated with the very roots of its terrain whose astounding splendor reveals itself in all shades of nature – there is abundant greenery, a rare variety of wildlife and million floral hues and of course the pristine Himalayas.
