Info about Dehradun

656 m

Dehradun is the capital city of the Uttarakhand state. From the capital of India New Delhi, Dehradun is about 230 kilometers by road.
Dehradun is situated in the Doon valley. Towards the north of this city are the Himalayas. Towards the south of the city are the Shivalik Hills. Towards the east is the longest river Ganga (Ganges) and towards the west is the river Yamuna.
This city has a sub-tropical climate. The summers are very hot, the monsoon is very heavy and winters can be very chilly. During the winter, there is continuous snowfall and the temperature of the city does rarely drop below the freezing point.
The highlight of this city is that there are a large number of high schools that entice students from all over India. One can see the students in high-school uniforms moving throughout the city.
There are blue striped city buses that move through the city. Another very famous scene is of the omnipresent blue three wheel vehicles. It is claimed that these vehicles lead to a large amount of air and noise pollution.

Overall Guide : Among the best places to visit in Dehradun, a must-see are the Indian Military Academy and the Wildlife Institute of India. The Indian Military Academy was established in 1932. This is the premier officer training school of the Indian Army. The... more cadets are distributed into four training battalions – the Cariappa Battalion, Thimayya Battalion, Manekshaw Battalion, Bhagat Battalion. These battalions have 3 to 4 companies and the total number of companies is 15. Whereas regarding the Wildlife Institute of India, the research projects that are conducted by this Institute are the main source of scientific information to assist conservation. This Institute has the advantage of creating a scientific infrastructure, infusion of modern technology, faculty development and the international and bilateral collaborations for institutional building.

But one... more honest request, do visit Dehradun and other heavenly places in Uttarakhand to have an ultimate experience but please !! please !! please !! try not to settle down here, because it has already been overcrowded with outsiders......

Overall Guide : Nice place for spending a day or two. Nearby (28 Km) Mussorie is a beutiful hill station. Haridwar and Rishikesh, the hindu piligramage are also 30-35 kms fro here. The way to Badrinath is through Dehradun. Hotels are plenty and... more price vary from budget, mid range to costly. City transport is average. You can hire Rickshaw or cabs for local transportation.
