Bordered by Tibet in the north, Nepal in the east, Himachal Pradesh in the west and the Gangetic
plains in the south, Uttarakhand, the land of spirituality seems to be a jewel on the crown of Indian Territory. Being the originating point of significant Indian rivers, Uttarakhand is the abode of some of the best hill stations in north India. While the winter season can offer you the best views of snow packed mountain ranges, the same ranges can be the comfort zones in the scorching summer. From thrilling mountain climbing to relaxing leisure walk, each single activity is delightful and worthy to time spending.
To familiarise you with the highly trodden as well as the unexplored tourist destinations in Uttarakhand, I have prepared a list of must-see hill stations in the region. This list can work as a miniature form of Uttarakhand Travel Guide.
Mostly known as the ‘queen of the hills’, Mussoorie is the pride of Uttarakhand Tourism industry and a significant source of revenue for the state. Breathtaking scenic beauty of Mussoorie compels the travelers to accept the truth that nature has painted the canvas of this astounding tourist spot with sheer concentration. Nestled amidst the undulating Himalayan ranges, this region seems like a nest of peace. The average altitude of Mussoorie is 1,880 m whereas the highest peak is more than 2,290m high making it a paradise for the thrill seekers. March to June and September to November is the best time
