Best Places to Visit in Uttarakhand for a Memorable Experience
Dehradun – The ‘Capital’ City
Wondering why the word capital up there has been put within quotes! Yes, Dehradun is the capital of Uttarakhand, but it is also to signify that it is certainly a capital when it comes to scenic beauty. Located amidst the Doon Valley with the river Ganges on one side and the river Yamuna on the other, you should not miss Dehradun when you travel to Uttarakhand.
Some of the most interesting things to do in Dehradun are visits to the Robber’s Cave, Tiger Falls, and Sahastradhara.
Jim Corbett National Park – A Thrilling Adventure
Here is a place usually included in all Excursion2India Uttarakhand Tour Packages from Kolkata, Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune or Gujarat. And, it is rightfully so!
There is no better place to become one with the wilderness at its most untamed than at the famed Corbett National Park.
Named after the famed wildlife conservationist, Jim Corbett, this is the oldest national park in the country.
It is home to a high density of the majestic Royal Bengal tigers. There is fairly good chance that you might spot a tiger on a safari at this national park.
Kausani – Say Hello to the Himalayas
Kausani is basically a village atop a hill station. Its claim to worthy fame comes from the fact that it offers a breathtaking panoramic 360-degree views of numerous Himalayan peaks.
Some of the peaks visible from here include Panchchuli, Nanda Devi, Trishul, Kedarnath, Badrinath, among others. Mahatma Gandhi is believed to have dubbed Kausani as the ‘Switzerland of India’ because of similar landscapes.
Mussoorie – As Good as it Gets
Mussoorie is one of the highest hill stations in Uttarakhand.
It offers chilling temperatures with an average high of only 18°C and low of 10°C, with temperature dropping to close to zero or sub-zero levels during winters.
There are plenty of interesting things to do like taking a trip to the top of Lal Tibba, and a ropeway ride from Jhula Garh to the second highest point in Mussoorie known as Gun Hill.
Visiting the ever beautiful Kempty Falls is always an experience of its own.
Nainital – Who can Forget
Yet another visual marvel, Nainital is one of the most visited hill stations in Uttarakhand. Often crowded, but you may still regret if you don’t visit Nainital during a trip to the Kumaon region.
Located in a valley surrounded by mountains and consisting of a lake shaped like a mango, Nainital offers an experience that very few can even claim to match.
The weather here is almost always so soothing. Boating in Naini lake is an out of the world experience. It has other famous lakes – Bhimtal, Naukuchiatal, and Sattal – located close to it.

You can do it by selecting one of the tailor-made inclusive Uttarakhand tour packages. These are offered by Excursion2India in Kolkata, Bangalore, Gujarat, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bhubaneswar or Indore.
