All You Need To Know About Delhi to Dehradun Bus Road Trip

The picturesque landscape elevated at 435 meters of the Garhwal region is placed 236 kilometers north of the capital city of India, New Delhi. Dehradun is formed by 2 words- ‘Dera’ meaning temporary settlement and Dun refers to the valley between the Shivaliks and the middle Himalayas, in the Garhwali language. It enjoys the waters of river Ganges in the East and Yamuna in the west. It keeps a milder climate and is gateway to other tourist stops as Mussoorie, Auli and holy cities, Haridwar and Rishikesh, and Chota Char Dham, the Himalayan pilgrimage route.

Dehradun is enriched with historical and mythological culture. Baba Ram Rai, set a camp for his followers in this region. Dun is also a regional part of Kedarkhand, the abode of Lord Shiva as per Skanda Purana. The great teacher to the Pandavas and Kauravas, Dronacharya lived in this area, referred to as "Dronanagari" in the Hindu epic the Mahabharata. Even the great epic Ramayan refers to the region. Lord Rama and Lord Lakshmana visited here after the great battle when Lord Rama defeated Ravana. So it is no surprise that 2000 years old ancient temples and idols find a place in the surrounding areas.


Robbers Cave- Tourists frequently visit The Robbers Cave. Those who love thrill and adventure love to go through the narrow exciting water passage of the cave by boat. The passage has a mysterious feel with protruding dark limestone formations and echoing sounds. The cold water springs keep the hot-summer-afternoon temperatures down.

The Tapkeshwar Temple is located about 6.5 km from center Dehradun. The shrine is dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is believed that whoever seeks the blessings of the Shiv Linga is granted the wishes. The mesmerizing simplistic view of water trickling down upon the Shiv Linga from the ceiling is unforgettable.

Another great tourist spot that Dehradun offers is the Malsi Deer Park. The zoological park in amidst the Siwalik range of the picturesque Doon Valley.
