Uttaranchal - General Information

Uttaranchal - the land of gods, the home of Himalayas and truly a paradise on earth, allures everyone from everywhere. The fresh air, the pure water, the chilling snow, the adversing mountains, the scenic beauty, the small villages, the simpler people and a tougher lifesytle is what that distinguishes Uttaranchal from rest of the world.

The State is also a treasure house of exotic flora and fauna and is an ideal location for eco-tourism, as well as wildlife tourism. The world-famous Corbett National Park is the pride of Uttaranchal. Other important sanctuaries are, Rajaji National Park, Govind Wildlife Sanctuary, Asan Barrage, Chilla etc. Last but not the least, the rich cultural traditions and the cool and invigorating climate of Uttaranchal sums up for a perfect holiday destination to relax and unwind.

Uttaranchal is composed of two words, "uttar" meaning "north" and "aanchal" meaning "blessings." Earlier known as "Devbhumi" meaning "the land of god," Uttaranchal also nourishes a diverse and rich culture and monuments of historical importance. Uttaranchal is broadly divided into two zones Kumaon and Garhwal.

Kumaoni and Garhwali are the respective bolis of Kumaon and Garhwal widely used in day to day communication by the pople living therein. It's widely spoken in villages and small towns. However the city culture has to much extent swallowed up Kumaoni and Garhwali, and the people prefer to use Hindi instead.

Uttranchal extends from 28º 43' N to 31º 27' N longitude and 77º 34' East to 81º 02' E latitude. Uttaranchal is surrounding by Nepal in the East, China in the North, Himachal Pradesh in the west and U.P. in the South.
