Few Words About Uttarakhand
Home to the historic and revolutionary Chipko Movement and the Yoga capital of the world, Uttarakhand is a perfect destination for a GoRad EDventure! The eclectic ensemble of natural beauty, pleasant weather, holy temples and adventure sports turns it into the perfect destination for our EDventures to relax as well as learn. Its tall coniferous trees and vast green meadows will leave you in a spell.
Uttarakhand is a mystic place with endless charm and mountain views. Known as the ‘Dev Bhumi’, the land of Gods, the area is filled with exotic tales from India’s heritage as it has several mythological connotations. With its serene beauty and pristine locations, this charming state has been rightly been handpicked by the Gods!
The region is a visual treat to your eyes as well as an abode of enchanting natural wonders filled with adventure and unique opportunities. Nature mesmerizes human souls in all its colours, shape, size and magnitude in Uttarakhand. It is India’s gateway to the Himalayan range,giving our students an experience of the sublime beauty of nature amidst spiritual serenity.
We believe that it is the perfect escape for our students to reacquaint with the wild side of life as Uttarakhand offers everything ranging from the best of natural splendours to unrivalled adrenaline-inducing adventures. Anywhere you turn, you are afforded with breath-taking views of the Himalayan Ranges, snow-capped peaks, steep valleys, misted landscapes and an abundance of beautiful flora. Twisting roads and high-altitude hiking trails lead to spectacular pilgrimage sites where tales from Hindu epics are set. In the midst of Indian heritage and culture the imprint of the British is equally apparent: the legend of Jim Corbett lives on in the famed tiger reserve that bears his name; popular holiday towns were once Raj-era hill stations; and the Beatles turned Rishikesh into a magnet for spiritual seekers and yoga practitioners worldwide.
The people of Uttarakhand are simple, warm and welcoming. See their faces light up with jubilant smiles as you talk to them! The colourful society is also a reflection of the many fairs and festivals celebrated across the mountain region! With the major occupation being farming, you’ll find the locals busy in the lush countryside.
Thus, the state of myth and mountains with its vibrant local culture and exotic villages is one of our favourite picks for our EDventurers!
