Uttarakhand: A Retreat to the Hills

ScoutMyTrip Jun 6, 2019
Uttarakhand is one of the best places in India to escape the maniacal summer heat. Retreating to one of the many nature camps in Uttarakhand will not only provide an escape from the heat but it will also let you spend some time with your own self.

Shivpuri

Not very far from Rishikesh, Shivpuri is a thrill for adventure seekers! Be it kayaking, bungee jumping, river rafting, jungle trekking or mountaineering you are sure to have an adventurous time.
Most of the camps are settled on the white sand river beach and they offer you a scenic view of the mountains and forest around you.

Sattal

Perfect for family bonding and far from the commercialized Nainital, Sattal offers you exactly what you seek while on vacation; peace and quiet.
Set up camp, go forest trekking, spot the myriad birds around you and enjoy a small bonfire at night. Now that's what we call the perfect getaway amidst the greenery and the mountains.

Chopta

Chopta is known as one of the best camping places in India and is the base for a trek to Tungnath temple. Trip planning to Chopta during the summers lets you have incredible views of the famous mountain peaks due to clear skies.
Apart from the Tungnath temple trek, you can also choose a trek to Chandrashila, Deoria Tal and Dodi Tal.

Dhanaulti

Situated at a distance of about 306 kms from Delhi, camping in Dhanaulti is a hub for adventure seekers. A weekend getaway from Dehradhun or Delhi is just what you require to de-stress.
Located at an altitude of 2286m, Dhanaulti is covered in a plantation of rhododendrons which gives this tiny hill station a spectacular look.
So, what's the point in waiting? Pack your bags and plan your summer getaways to Uttarakhand at the earliest possible time to enjoy a spectacular view of the mountains, the Ganges river and lush green forests.
