उत्तराखंड में हर पर्वत, हर घाटी की अपनी अलग ही नैसर्गिक छटा है। वहीं एक स्थान औली है। औली में न तो कोई भीड है और न किसी तरह का शोर। इस स्थान की विशेषता यहां के हरे-भरे ढलान हैं। मखमली घास के इन ढलानों को बुग्याल कहते हैं। औली अपने आप में न तो कोई शहर है और न बाजार। यह तो बस एक सैरगाह है। यहां पहुंच कर आप यह पाएंगे कि अगर कोई है तो सिर्फ आप हैं और आपके सामने प्रकृति का अनूठा सौंदर्य है। आपके अलावा वैसे तो वहां होते और भी बहुत लोग हैं, पर सब अपने-आप में व्यस्त और मस्त। व्यस्तता का आलम भी सिर्फ एक और वह है प्रकृति की मनोहारी छटा को भिन्न-भिन्न रूपों में देखना तथा आत्मसात करना।
दैनिक जीवन की भागदौड में क्षीण होती ऊर्जा को पुन: संचित करने के लिए ऐसा ही स्थान चाहिए। यहां के बुग्यालों में आप यायावार की भांति घूमते रहिए। दूर तक फैले इन बुग्यालों में हर तरफ एक सा सौंदर्य नजर आएगा। आसपास देवदार और ओक के घने जंगल भी हैं। कहीं-कहीं आपको छोटे-छोटे झरने भी देखने को मिल सकते हैं। औली के सामने बर्फ से ढके पहाडों की लंबी श्रृंखला देखने को मिलती है। वहां आप एक पॉइंट पर खडे होकर इन पर्वत शिखरों की पहचान भी कर सकते हैं। इसके लिए वहां पीक के नाम और उनकी दिशा का नक्शा पत्थर पर बना है। यह स्थान समुद्रतल से करीब 2520 मीटर की ऊंचाई पर है। इसलिए यहां हमेशा मौसम ठंडा ही बना रहता है।

सर्दियों में तो औली एक अलग ही रूप ले लेता है। यहां के बुग्याल उस समय बर्फ से ढक जाते हैं। तब यह स्कीइंग के ढलानों के रूप में साहसी पर्यटकों को आमंत्रित करते हैं। हिमक्रीडा के उस मौसम में यहां विदेशी सैलानी भी खूब आते हैं। जनवरी-फरवरी में यहां हर साल स्कीइंग की प्रतियोगिता आयोजित की जाती है। नौसिखिए लोगों के लिए यहां स्कीइंग के कोर्स भी चलाए जाते हैं। स्कीइंग अगर न भी करनी हो तो औली के धवल सौंदर्य को निहारने के लिए तो यहां आया ही जा सकता है। जोशीमठ से औली और गौरसों तक रोप-वे या ट्रॉली मार्ग से आना भी अपने आपमें एक रोमांचक अनुभव होता है।

Naintial’s Pt. G. B. Pant High altitude Zoo is a big tourist attraction
« Reply #31 on: December 05, 2008, 11:00:03 AM »
Nainital, Dec.4 (ANI): The Bharat Ratna Pandit G B Pant High altitude zoo is a major attraction for tourists visiting Nainital.

Located 2,020 metres above sea-level and spread over five hectares of area, the zoo is the only High Altitude Zoo in north India after the zoos in Darjeeling and Sikkim.

The zoo comprises various animals found in Himalayn region. Many of them belong to endangered species. Snow Leopard, Siberian Tiger, Tibetan wolf, Sambar and Himalayan bear are among the many endangered species kept here. It is also home to different species of birds.

One of the attractive features of this special zoo is the way it has been developed. Efforts have been made to develop in such a way that the inmates at the zoo, despite being kept in their enclosures, can feel that there are in their natural habitat.

Annually around 125,000 tourists visit this zoo. Most of them are drawn to watch snow leopard, hill fox, Himalayan black bear and Tibetan wolf at this zoo.

“We have kept all those animals in this zoo that are found at such an altitude. Animals like snow leopard, Himalayan bear and Siberian tiger along with exotic species of birds are kept in this zoo. Other than these rarely found, animals like Himalayan Martin is also found in this zoo,” said Manoj Shah, Range Officer at the Bharat Ratna Pandit G B Pant zoo.

Tourists enjoy a gala time visiting this special zoo with families.

“We saw many animals here and also went to Jim Corbett Park. But, unfortunately, we were not being able to see any of the animals. We have seen leopard, dear and birds here today. It’’s been a nice experience for us,” said Shweta, a tourist from Hyderabad.

The zoo has nicely constructed animal enclosure like of snow leopard and all are at an altitude.

Nainital Zoo is providing a habitat to snow leopard, Siberian tiger, Himalyan black bear, hill fox, Plam civet cat, ghoral, silver pheasants, barking deer, sambhar deer, owl, eagle, Rose ringed Prakeet and many more.

Besides keeping the Himalayan animals and birds, it also conserves steadily vanishing species. Several plants have been planted to maintain the natural habitat at the zoo.

The zoo remains closed for visitors on Monday and on national holidays. (ANI)

« Reply #32 on: December 30, 2008, 12:09:05 PM »
Dear Members of the Community i wish like to add one new Sight to this.
There is one location in pauri called as Mahabgarh. For this you have to take the route Kotdwara --> Dugadda --> Paukhal --> Take the approach road to Nalikhal, there is a diversion which goes towards Mahabgarg, the Road is very pathetic (the Road approx 5 KM, no signs of road)) . from then onwards one has to climb 500 Steps ( the approach road has now been Developed) which makes the steeping easy. it is a very old Shiv mandir at present i am not having snaps.From the Top one can have a View of Har ki paudi( on a clear Day). it says that during Oct when the sun rises the Shadow of the Mandir reaches Har Ki Paudi. There is elephant Pahad one can view the same.
Jai Mahabgarh.
