Tehri, a city that has been in news due to the Chipko movement some years back, has gained popularity amongst all nature lovers and trekkers. The old Tehri town located at the confluence of Bhilangna and Bagirathi River offers a picturesque view of the snow covered Himalayas around. But presently the old Tehri is submerged under the Tehri dam reservoir. This reservoir is supposedly the largest man made reservoir in Asia. But the visit to the Dam can be organized only after obtaining requisite permissions from the authority. Visit the new Tehri town which is a well planned city and get excited to view the vast expanse of the reservoir and the dam.

Other than the Tehri dam, do visit the Surkanda Devi temple which is 87 Km from Tehri but is very popular amongst all the goddess Durga devotees. Known as the Shakti peeth, Surkanda temple is a 1.5 km trek with scenic surroundings to admire. Once on top of the hill, feel the vastness and admire the Himalayas around!

Once at Tehri, do plan a trek to the Khatling Glacier which is a lateral glacier and offers a magnificent view of the surrounding peaks of Barte Kauter, Kirti Stambh, Jogin group and Sphetic Pristwar.

Tehri being close to Dehradun, Mussoorie, Devprayag, Haridwar and other important cities of Uttrakhand can be very advantageous to all those travelers who want to stay away from the rush of the Hill stations. Visit the nearby attractions like Mussoorie, Devprayag, Chamba, kaudiliya etc by road and come back to your hotel or resort at Tehri. Calm and serene place for all, Tehri should be on the weekend getaways list for everyone.
