If you still have doubts, we have compiled a list of 8 reasons for you, why Uttarakhand must be on your bucket list!

Calm Winds and Chill Atmosphere
The cool climes all year round are perfect for you to enjoy your mornings with a pot of freshly brewed coffe or a steaming cup of chai. Going to the plains doesn’t provide much relief from the hot summer heat. Choose a trip in Uttarakhand, such as Mukteshwar, where the cool temperatures will provide a welcome respite from the scorching and busy streets of cities. Leave steamy commutes behind and enjoy chilly alpine mornings. Uttarakhand cottages, such as SaffronStays El Sueno, Mukteshwar and SaffronStays Doon Garden Villa, Dehradun, feature a painting-like appeal and rustic furnishings that will brighten your vacation. You could also enjoy a crackling bonfire on chilly nights.

Panorama Views Unmatched in Every Way
The breathtaking vistas are one thing you will never run out of in the hills. Although farms and beaches have their distinct charms, nothing compares to the sight of a panoramic view in the mountains. Private villas for rent near Delhi like SaffronStays Maison Calme, Mussoorie and SaffronStays Kenny’s Kove, Mukteshwar provide stunning views that cannot be seen anywhere else, from far-off villages that seem to be as little as huts to panorama images of hills rolling to the horizon. Lay down as night falls and take in the hills’ stargazing. You’ll feel on top of the world if you picture yourself sipping coffee while wearing a scarf and standing on a balcony that views over woods and valleys all at once.

Lush Greenery

Head up to Uttarakhand, one of the best places to visit in India, to reconnect with nature. You need to give your eyes a break from those screens and let them feast upon acres and acres of green. Watch the sun rising over dense farms, an experience to take at cottage-like hillside luxury villa, SaffronStays Paradise Pines, Dehradun. Or else, sip your favourite beverage on the large balcony while you enjoy the view of verdant valleys and the lovely garden at SaffronStays Casa Bellissimo, Dehradun — one of the best Dehradun cottages.

Pollution-free Air
The higher the hill, the cleaner the air! Uttarakhand, one of the stunning places to visit in India, offers crisp and fresh air, thanks to the miles of tall trees and lush vegetation. It would be a welcome break from your regular life in the city to spend a few days in a green, litter-free environment (free of wrappers and plastic bags). For instance, the modest outdoor lounging area of SaffronStays Fourest, Bhimtal is lovely and has a pleasant vibe. You will breathe clean air in areas with less pollution, just as the local plants and wildlife do. So if you’re seeking some fresh air, a hillside luxury home is the ideal choice for you.

Outdoor Activities
There are several activities to enjoy while on vacation in the hills. You must stretch your limbs as you participate in exciting activities and fun local tours. Imagine strolling the valley’s verdant trails or paragliding over it. These activities are available at the cottages for rent near Dehradun, such as SaffronStays Ghughuti Ku Baasa, Dehradun and SaffronStays Doon Hideout, Dehradun. Explore Tibetan markets, walk to the stunning Kempty Falls (2.5 hours away), or camp overnight in George Everest Park for a starry night. There are always exciting things to do in the hills, no matter where you are.

A Relaxing Vacation
Cool temperatures, breathtaking sights, natural habitats, and clean landscapes will give you the most relaxing holiday. Those stress lines will vanish as you take in the beauty of the hills.
