|Best Time to Visit||The best time to visit the state is in Summers. As it does not get really hot at any of its cities. Though one can visit the state all round the year depending upon where you decide to go. Only avoiding the monsoons (July and August), as the rain comes quiet heavily here and it may cause communication problems and also cause heavy landslides. People who are keen on skiing, or love the snow can take a chance of visit the state in winters or otherwise its quiet cold in comparison to the other states. The Hill stations like Mussoorie and Nainital are immensely popular with India’s plains-dwelling urban middle class, and they descend on these cities in droves during the summer. If you prefer a bit of solitude, avoid coming here between May and July. Also stay away during the monsoons (July and August), when heavy rainfalls can cause dangerous landslides.|
|How To Reach||By Air
The Jolly Grant Airport in Dehradun is the nearest airport to the state, and it is well connected to Delhi with regular flights. The state can also be reached via the domestic airport at Pantnagar in the Kumaon region but you have to check whether the airport is operational or not.
The best mode of commuting in the state is by road. There are regular private and state bus services that run through the state. You can also hire a cab/taxi. All the cities and towns in the state are very well connected by roads, in fact a few places can be reached only via roads specially the remote areas. Though the hilly region can have landslides, poor surfaces but one has to adjust the fact as there is no other means of commuting.
Almost the whole state of Uttarakhand is on a hilly region, so there is only a few major cities with railway stations. Dehradun, Haridwar, Rishikesh, Nainital and two three more cities have railway stations. These stations are very well connected to the neighbouring states and to major cities of the country but not all. You may also find best way from your location- click here.
