Getting There

Uttaranchal is a major attraction with tourists in search of eternal peace, for a change from their usual way of life, to live life on extremes and as pilgrims. And if you are planning to tour Uttaranchal, the state is easily accessible by air, rail and road.

By Air
Jolly Grant near Dehradun is the only airport. There are regular flights to Delhi by major Indian airlines. Otherwise, one has the option to travel to Delhi by road or rail and then take the air route to various destinations.

By Rail
Dehradun, Haridwar, and Kathgodam are the major railway stations connected to almost all parts of the country with regular trains. Not many places in the state are connected by rail because of tough terrains. For those planning their vacations in the higher altitudes, trekking and road routes are the only options available.

By Road
All-weather metalled roads connect almost all the important places in the state. Many places in the higher altitudes may still remain off for a period in the year due to landslides and snowfall. National Highways such as 58, 73, 74, and 87 connect places in the state to other parts of the country.
