The Indian Himalayan North crowns the nation in a halo.

It rests with rolling mountains and serene scenery on the Northern tip. India is situated in the tropical region. The Himalayan North region is a haven of reprieve from central India’s oppressive heat. Visitors travel here to see the wondrous Himalayas.

The three touristy states that are part of this region are Jammu and Kashmir, Uttarakhand, and Himachal Pradesh.

Jammu and Kashmir itself was titled as the “heaven on earth” by King Shah Jahan. He was the one who built Taj Mahal.

For peace-seeking travelers, the exquisite valleys, the secluded slopes, and the pleasant weather are all a treat.

Gulmarg is home to popular ski resorts. Here, you can try your hand at adventure sports or sail on the highest Gondola.  Golf courses are nestled in lush forests. Mubarak Mandi Palace, Sri Amarnath Temple, Bahu Fort, Sonamarg and Raghunath temple are iconic landmarks in the state. Continuous terrorist strikes have led to the deterioration of tourism here.

Despite its beauty, however, continuous terrorist strikes have led to the deterioration of tourism.

Uttarakhand reigns supreme when it comes to hill stations. One of the best hill stations in India, Dehradun, is nestled between the mountains of Rajaji National Park.

Mussoorie and Nainital are other gorgeous valleys with panoramic views of the Himalayan North. Almora, Pithoragarh, Chamba, and Mukteswar are other alpine gems you must visit. Corbett national park was the first National Park ever created in India.

It is also a region of religious heritage. The temples of Haridwar hold a spiritual ambiance that haunts the corridors. Yoga lovers can travel to Rishikesh. Here, they will find fine ashrams where they can learn the true essence of yoga.

Himachal Pradesh has twelve beautiful districts. Shimla is the sister of Dehradun in its scenic charm. Dalhousie is a quaint town which retains the Victorian architecture of the colonial period. Kullu and Manali are ideal for adventure junkies that want some action on the sky-piercing mountains. Hindi and Urdu are spoken by locals in Himalayan North. Buses are used in the mountainous area; train connectivity is not extensive.
