Home :: India Destination :: Uttaranchal

Nainital LakeThere are a number of reasons that set Uttaranchal apart from the rest of the world. The state, lying in the northern part of India, is an ideal location whether you talk of adventure, wildlife or eco-tourism. Besides, the rich culture and the historical significance of the state can never be denied. Broadly speaking, Uttaranchal can be segregated into Kumaon and Garhwal zones. It shares it boundary with Nepal on its east, China on its north, Himachal Pradesh on its west and Uttar Pradesh on its south.

Owing to altitudes and physio-graphic complexities, the climatic conditions in Uttaranchal vary from tropical to polar types. Summer continues from March till May while winter spans from October to February. The maximum rainfall measures 1200 mm. A decrease in rainfall can be observed as one moves to higher altitude areas. Places which lies 2,000 m above sea level also experience snowfall. You can plan your trip here anytime between April and November.
