Corbett National Park: This national park is named after Jim Corbett. It is located in the Nainital district and is known for its varied wildlife. You can experience a jeep safari at the park to watch animals in their natural surroundings.

Haridwar: Haridwar is among India’s holiest sites. Hindus from all over the country and across the world assemble here to take a dip in the holy Ganga to wash their sins. The aarti held in the evenings is a massive crowd-puller.

Rishikesh: Another holy spot in Uttarakhand, Rishikesh is famous for its connection with Yoga. As a result, Rishikesh attracts a lot of foreign tourists looking to explore the ancient technique. Rishikesh is at an hour’s drive from Haridwar and can be clubbed with it while visiting Uttarakhand.
