Uttarakhand is a lesser known area among foreign tourists. But not so for the indian tourists as some of their holiest Hindu-places are located in Uttarakhand. Many of them are in connection with the holy river Ganga that has it’s source in Uttarakhand and starts from there.
But also for the western tourists there are spots of great interest. Additionally it is a great place for trekking, Yoga, meditation, rafting or simply leisure.
You could hike up to the source of Ganga and get in touch with Saddhus and pilgrims, or visit the valley of flowers which is especially beautiful in spring time.
The best travel time is autumn (late September to November) and spring (March to May)
