Himalayan Beauty of Uttaranchal

Uttaranchal blessed with magnificent glaciers , majestic snow-clad mountains, gigantic and ecstatic peaks, valley of flowers, skiing slopes and dense forests, this Abode of Gods includes many shrines and places of pilgrimage. The Great Himalayan Range forms the backbone of the Garhwal and Kumaon regions of Uttaranchal. In Eestern Garhwal, it includes the Swargarohini range with Swargarohini I (6,252m) at the head of the Tons River, and the Bandarpunch range, including Bandarpunch (6,316m) forming the main divide between the headwaters of the Yamuna and the Bhagirathi Rivers.

Tourist Places in Uttaranchal

Dehra Dun
This old centre of the Raj is situated in the broad Doon Valley between the Siwaliks and the front range of the Himalaya.  The hill station Mussoorie can be seen, 34km away, on the high ranges above the valley.
Dehradun the capital city of Uttarachal is a complete blend of city and hill culture. It is set in the foot hills of Himalayas at the centre of the 120 kms long Doon Valley. The name Dehradun is literally made up of two words where Dera means Camp and Dun stands for Valley.

The beautiful town is referred as the gateway to Mussoorie and Garhwal interior. Dehra Dun is at the centre if a forest area and the Forest Research Institute is here. The town is a major academic and research center and the base for the Indian Military Academy and the survey of India. It is perhaps one of the oldest cities in India and was occupied in turns by the Sikhs, Mughals and Gurkhas before coming under the reigns of the British. Elite educational and other institutions were established during the British period.

Haridwar

Haridwar's propitious location, at the point where the Ganges emerges from the Himalaya to begin its slow progress across the plains, makes it a particularly Holy Place. There are many ashrams here but you may find Rishikesh (24 km to the North) more pleasant, especially if you wish to study meditation. Haridwar means Gateway to the Gods, but it seems like any other noisy town. Haridwar is believed to be one of the seven holiest places according to Hindu mythology. According to the ancient scriptures Haridwar is also called Mayapuri, Gangadwarand, Mokshadwar as the God are believed to have left their footprints in Haridwar so that every Human being can follow the path of salvation. Hardier has always been a major Shaktipeeth for the devotees because the holiest of all rivers; the great Ganga; flows through this.

Things to See in Haridwar

Haridwar is a very old town, mentioned by the Chinese scholar/traveler Xuan Zhang in the 8th centuary AD, but its many temples were constructed comparatively recently, and are of little historical interest, although they do have many idols and illustrated scenes from the Hindi epics.
Har-Ki-Pauri:
Har-Ki-Pauri – the sacred Ghat was constructed by King Vikramaditya in memory of his brother Bhartrihari. It is believed that Bhartihari eventually came to Haridwar to meditate by the banks of the holy Ganga. When he died, his brother constructed the Ghat in his name which later came to be known as Har-Ki-Pauri. This sacred bathing ghat is also known as Brahmakund. The reflection of golden hues of floral diyas in the river Ganga is the most enchanting sight in the twilight during the Ganga Arti Ceremony. It is the most important ghat on the river Ganga, where a holy dip is a must for every devotee.

Rajaji National Park

This beautiful Park, covering 820 sq km in the forested foothills east of Haridwar, is best known for its wild elephants, numbering around 150 in all.  Unfortunately, their future is in question since human competition for land has served their traditional migration route, which once stretched from here to the area which is now par of Corbett Tiger Reserve, 170 km to the east (see the Corbett Tiger Reserve Section, later in this chapter). Plans for a migration corridor would involve moving several villages and have become bogged down in the usual bureaucracy.  Spread over an area of 820.42 sq Kms., Rajaji is a magni- ficient ecosystem nestled in the Shivalik ranges and the beginning of the vast Indo – Gangetic plains, thus representing vegetationof several distinct zones and forest types like Sal forests, Reverine forests, Board –leaved mixed forests, Scrubland and grassy. It posses as many as 23 species of mammals and 315 birds species.The abundance of nature’s bounties heaped in and around this park, are bound to attract a large number of wildlife conservationists, nature lovers and eco-friends to visit this most breathtaking wilderness area.

Rajaji National Park is distinct for its pristine scenic beauty and rich bio- diversity. A paradise for nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts, the wildlife of the park is blessed with elephants, tigers, leopards, deer and ghorals as its best known life forms Three sancturies in the Western U.P., Shivaliks- Rajaji, Motichur and Chilla were amalgamated into a large protected area and named Rajaji National Park in the year 1983 after the famous freedom fighter Late Sri C. Rajgopalachari; Popularly known as "Rajaji". This area is the North Western Limit of Asian elephants.
