Tehri Garhwal Tourism

The Hindu Mythology and legends seemed to have showered Tehri Garhwal with several spiritual significances. It is this place where River Ganga arrives in its real form at Devprayag where River Bhagirathi and River Alaknanda merge. One can also see many temples dotted across the place.

In fact the Tehri Garhwal derives its name from the word 'Triharia' which indicates a place where three kinds of sins can be cleared that are result of Mansa, Vacha and Kamana i.e. thought, word and deed respectively. New Tehri, the headquarters of the district is one of the only planned towns of Uttarakhand. Situated at an altitude of 1550-1950m above the sea level, it overlooks at the massive lake and equally impressive dam also serves as the major attraction of the area. The Old Tehri that was once heavily inhabited today lies under the water in ruins. Visiting this place is an experience that is worth remembering.

- Beware of the monkeys, they may cause mischief even at your accommodation.
- Winters are excruciatingly cold but beautiful at the same time, so carry heavy woolens if travelling during the season.
- Avoid travelling during monsoon season as the area faces excessive landslide and poor road conditions.
