The abundance of nature at every step and unlimited hideaways compelling one to lose completely into the wilderness, if it’s not the place to surrender to, then, there is none other.
Uttarakhand, with its wildly beautiful hamlets and vibrantly colorful culture, is the perfect destination to fall in love with. Intricate art right at the doorsteps in the form of Aipan and Geru, and local dialects oozing the rhythms of folk music adorns Uttarakhand’s share of rural travel in India.
If you are wondering what all the activities you can enjoy in its limitless boundaries, then trust us, the sky’s the limit here (we mean literally!). Come learn some basics of life science and enjoy life in a high altitude terrain.
If it’s still not enough to get you going, then, cozy stays in mud/stone houses, beautiful treks and the company of the folktales under the star-studded sky will give you enough reasons to shout, “Shut up and take my money!”.
Rural tourism in Uttarakhand has a long ongoing list, with villages like Jeolikot, Sankri, Khirsu, Kuflon, Malari and Sitlakhet shining with their concoction of eco-tourism and rural tourism.
These beautiful locations overlooking either snow clad mountains, emerald hills or sparkling rivers are the rustic beauties that are much capable of winning every heart.
From a village like Mana, the last inhabited village on the Indo-China border famous for its sheep wool to a trekker’s paradise like Kalap basking in the glory of pine, deodar and wild lavender forests, the bliss of Uttarakhand rural tourism has no shortage of pristine remote beauties.
