HARIDWAR & RISHIKESH
The state is termed as Devbhumi (Land of God), as it has embraced numerous important pilgrimage sites in it. Uttarakhand was formerly known as Uttranchal, and its beauty has always been intact. Deodar, oak, silver fir, chestnut, poplar, birch, rhododendron and many other species of trees are popped everywhere; even in steep slopes. This bountiful greenery is scattered all over Uttarakhand, in the hills and plains. Two most sacred rivers of India, Yamuna and Ganga (Ganges) are originated in this state. There isn’t much of an argument needed to proof why Uttarakhand is a must-visit destination.
