Nature & Eco

One of the most primitive things that Uttarakhand is known for is its diverse and conserved natural environment. Away from the busy cities and the commotion, it offers a pollution free environment where one can actually experience the serene beauty of what we call – Nature. Having a diverse flora and fauna, it comes out to be a healthy, balanced bio-diverse land and thus maintains a nutritious ecology. Consisting of heritage sites, rivers and lakes, mountains along with glaciers and Conservation Parks, Uttarakhand is a land full of pro environment people and culture.

Lakes

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.
