  Uttarakhand, India

The Garhwal Himalayas are mountain ranges located in the state of Uttarakhand, India. The mountain ranges cross two regions: Garhwal division and Kumaon division. Garhwal Kingdom consisted of the present day Tehri Garhwal district and most of the Uttarkashi district. The region consists almost entirely of rugged mountain ranges running in all directions. It is separated by narrow valleys. The highest mountains are in the north, with principal peaks being Nanda Devi, Kamet, Trisul, Badrinath, Dunagiri, and Kedarnath. 


To get to Garhwal, one can easily get a bus from I.S.B.T Kashmeri Gate (Metro Station) in New Delhi to Kotdwar and Rishikesh.
