The state of Uttarakhand, often referred to as “Devbhoomi” meaning Abode of Gods, is blessed with a treasure of pristine scenic beauty

 

in the form of lofty snow clad peaks of the Great Himalayas, glacial lakes, myriad of waterfalls, lush green meadows (Bugyals), perennial

 

streams, dense alpine forests and rare species of fauna and flora. The State is home to two of the most sacred rivers of this country, Ganga and

Yamuna and houses holy shrines of Yamunotri, Gangotri, Shri Badrinath, Shri Kedarnath and Hemkund Sahib.
