Therefore, if you haven’t been in Uttarakhand till now, you must visit the state for visiting
temples, Hindi literature, dance, music, and food at one place. If you take my experience, I visited hilly states again and again and every time I come back with a strange sense of serenity and calmness. Recently I went to Haridwar on way to Chandrashila Peak. A trip to the Har-Ki-Pauri  (the stairway to God) is a must while in Haridwar. I went there in the evening at the time of the ‘arti’. There was understandably alot of crowd. Not fully satisfied, I took a cycle rickshaw and went there again next morning. In conclusion, You should definitely give it a try to go there once and explore the state and have a look at the famous temples.
