Tehri Garhwal

Tehri Garhwal a tranguil paradise Garhwal Himalayas


The district of Tehri Garhwal stretches from the snow clad Himalayan peaks of Thalaiya Sagar, Jonli and the Gangotri group all the way to the foothills near Rishikesh. the gushing Bhagirathi which runs through seems to divide the district into two, while the Bhilangna alaknanda, Ganga and yamuna rivers border it on the east and west. Its immediate neighbouring districts are Uttarkashi, Chamoli, Pauri, Rudraprayag and Dehradun. History has it that the king of Garhwal expressed his gratitude to the British for liberating Garhwal from the Gorkhas, by giving away half of his kingdom. Consequently, Pauri Garhwal including today’s Chamoli and Rudraprayag (partly) district came to be called British Garhwal until India’s independence in 1947. Tehri, at the meeting point of the rivers Bhagirathi and Bhilangna, became the new Capital of Tehri Garhwal, Srinagar having been the old capital.
