New Delhi: Known as "Dev Bhoomi" which means "Land of Gods" the holy land of uttarakhand and the mighty Himalayas offer such unusual and utopian experiences that are difficult to find anywhere else.

It is mainly known for its alluring and admiring beauty of Himalayas, lush green hills, the varied flora and fauna and the majestic view of the nature.

Known as the MAHAKHUMB of the Himalayas, one such once in a life time experience is the Nanda Devi Raj jat Yatra.

Nanda devi raj jat happens once in 12 years - the journey starts from Nauti village accompanying a mystical four-horned sheep and Doli.

The legend of the nanda Devi Raj Jat is an important event from spritual point of view as the shrines of Nanda Devi are scattered all over the Central Himalayas.
