The serenity and mysticism of the mountains is quite an antithesis of violence afterall! As much as your eyes can capture, all you get to see is the virgin wilderness strewn all over this beautiful stretch of the Himalayan Foothills. May be it was an antidote to the great Indian disappointments related to power struggle that almost threatened to spread darkness in this world. The outcome was nevertheless as grand as the place in question!

However, moving away from this historical connection, present day Uttarakhand, India’s 27th independent state has always been admired by the world for its undying charm. Green meadows winding upto many unexplored high mountain stretches and undulating brooks, emerald lakes and feral rivers gushing down the Himalayas explain the enigma called Uttarakhand in the best possible ways.  Known as the land of gods because of the place being abode of many Hindu deities and several Hindu pilgrimage sites, Uttarakhand attracts millions of pilgrims all over the year. Nature lovers seeking both recreation and adventure find solace in the untamed rivers and inscrutable mountains as much as the pilgrims find salvation in the clinking bells rumbling through the high mountains.
