What should be your travel route

With the increasing interest of tourists towards this area, it has seen a lot of development in recent years. Considering that about a decade or two ago there weren’t even proper roads there, the accessibility to Chopta has seen vast progress. The first thing that you have to do is reach Uttarakhand, of course. You can take a flight, that’ll land you in the capital city, Dehradun. If you decide to travel by train, it’ll get you to Haridwar. Dehradun and Haridwar are quite close to each other, so whatever mode of travel you choose, it will not make much of a difference. What you have to do now is catch a bus to Srinagar. There can be a bit of a hassle here because you may or may not find the transportation to Srinagar. To resolve this issue, you can take a bus to Kotdwar.

Deeksha Sundriyal

How to reach…

The nearest Airport to Rishikesh is Jolly Grant Airport at Dehradun which is approximately 35 kilometers away from Rishikesh. From there also you can take a cab which will drop you at Rishikesh.

Dehradun and Mussoorie : Hill stations in Transit

Well, it is because this is what pulled me back to the embrace of the two cities, Mussoorie and Dehradun: Nostalgia. Not only nostalgia for my days spent at the boarding in Dehradun but also a strong sense of nostalgia for the quaint hill stations.

Mussoorie : perfect spot for the Summer!

It’s still a worldwide mystery why hilly regions have that special allure of a perfect holiday destination. We do occasionally think about beaches, desserts and wild-forests but hills have a completely different calling which can’t be ignored. I caved into that calling and visited Mussoorie during last summer and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Mussoorie is a small hill station in Dehradun district of the state Uttrakhand, about 290 km from New Delhi, the capital city of India.
