Map of Uttarakhand

The land of Vedas and Shastras and the Hindu epic Mahabharatha, Uttarakhand is today a picturesque land, known for its magnificent glaciers, majestic snow-clad mountains, panoramic views of the Himalayas, dense forests and the valley of flowers, as well as some of Hinduism's most sacred pilgrim sites. Bifurcated from Uttar Pradesh in 2000, Uttarakhand retained most of the hilly regions and tourist attractions.Rich in natural resources - especially water and forests - Uttarakhand abounds in glaciers, rivers and forests abounding in medicinal plants. The famous peaks of Uttarakhand are Nanda Devi, Kedarnath, Trishul, Bandarpunch and Mt Kamet. The major glaciers include Gangotri, Pindari, Milam and Khatling. The Ganga, the Yamuna, Ramganga and Sharda are principal rivers of this region.
