Foothills of The Himalaya

When we talk about snow capped mountains and adventure, Himalayan mountain ranges are at the top of line. White water rafting down the Ganges and trekking through Nature’s rich bounty are the best experiences one can ever dream of. Very pristine and beautiful Hill Stations are strewn across this part of North India. God created Nature therefore also selected Himalayas as his abode and this is apparent in many famous temples in this region which represent the fulfillment of religious journey of Char Dham.
