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.

My first trip to Uttarakhand was for twenty-two days. It was mainly a spiritual trip in which I had covered – Kedarnath, Badrinath, Gangotri, Yamunotri, Harshil, Rudraprayag, Karnaprayag, Joshimath, Pipalkoti, Chamoli, Haridwar, Rishikesh, Mukteshwar and other places. The second trip was a combination of fun and spiritual respite, in which I covered – Haldwani, Nainital, Bhimtal, Naukuchiatal, Sat Tal, Dehradun, Musoorie, Chamoli, Kausani, Haridwar and Rishikesh. The third trip was an adventurous one with a sheer emphasis on forests and nature. Here, I covered the places – Kathgodam, Nainital (once more), Jim Corbett National Park, Binsar, Chaukori, Munsiyari, Pitthoragarh, Jageshwar etc. My recent trip is, again, a medley of mesmerising mountains and hypnotizing forests in the lap of unadulterated nature.
