A hilly state in northern India, Uttarakhand is often referred to as the “Land of the Gods” as four of the most sacred and revered Hindu temples, Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri and Yamunotri, are nestled in its mighty mountains. Rivers, lakes, jungles and snow capped peaks characterise this peaceful state and form the natural accompaniment to the yoga centres and ashrams dotted around. Go trekking in the foothills of the Himalayas, try spotting a tiger at the Corbett Tiger Reserve or ponder on the spiritual pervasiveness of India while watching your candle offering float down the Ganges from the Har-ki-Pairi Ghat in Haridwar.
