Nanda Devi Nauti, Chamoli

The otherwise quite and serene Chamoli district in Garhwal reverberates during the festive event of Nanda Devi Raj Jat. The Raj Jat (Originally Raj-Yatra the Royal journey) takes place every 12 years after elaborate preparations by the descendants of the royal priests living in village Nauti and the royal family of Kunwars living in Kansuwar. Nanda Devi is an excellent example of the vibrant culture of Uttaranchal pulsating in a land blessed with superb natural beauty.
