Uttarakhand Opens New Trails

Apr 10, 2023 | News

The northern Indian state of Uttarakhand, a magnet for trekkers from all over the world, is set to open 15 new jungle trails in some of its less visited areas.

Known as the ‘Land of the Gods’ due to the numerous Hindu temples and places of religious significance, Uttarakhand is also known for its beautiful locale in the Himalayas, offering up many treks in the mountains, such as the Roopkund Trek and Valley of the Flowers.  Tourists often come to the state to visit one of the many hill stations, such as Rishikesh (made famous by the Beatles), a popular backpacker hangout.

Beginning this month, trekkers will now have the option to get off the beaten path and explore 15 new jungle trails located in Uttarakhand’s dense forests, ranging in length from 2.5 km hike to 65 km multi-day trek.  Read more from the Times of India: Uttarakhand opens 15 new jungle trails
