Featured Places | About Kumaon (Category: , Altitude: )

The Kumaon hills have a timeless beauty and an eloquent grandeur.

The Himalayan part of Uttar Pradesh, India was given state hood in 2000 and the stunning state of Uttarakhand was born. Uttarakhand (Uttaranchal) falls into two distinct regions that broadly divide the state in half, The Garwhal which includes the famous yoga and pilgrimage centre of Rishikesh in the west and the little known Kumaon region in the east.

The Kumaon contains some of the most stunning mountain scenery that we know of anywhere, from the perennially snow capped peaks of the Great Himalaya range in the north to the pretty hill stations of Almora and Nainital in the foothills and the stunning wilderness of Corbett National Park where the hills meet the Indo-gangetic plain in the south.

Right from the coquettish charms of the sparkling Rhododendrons to the somberness of stately Deodars myriad of moods of nature are here to be seen and experienced. Snuggled here amid the chains of mountains are the sprawling river valleys the social surplus produced wherein could once give altogether a new dimension to the Kumaoni art idiom and yes, nestled in the expanse of thick forests and the verdant fields of the Tarai-Bhaber is the justification of that primeval faith which had earned for earth the bestower the epithet of 'Mother'.

Combining with the creativity and aesthetics of human genius the munificence of nature appears to have been telling to each visitor here that life is extremely beautiful and each and every moment of it should be lived to the fullest. The Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam has been sharing this 'unique feel' with you over the years. We don't only show you the spectacular panorama of this land but also introduce you to it, so as to instill in you the age old conviction that great things are born when men and mountain meet.
