Jadung, located along the Indo-Tibet border in Uttarkashi, has become the first village in the region to have been developed as a tourist destination. It is also the first of the five villages that are being rehabilitated (the locals were displaced during the Indo-China War) and converted into sustainable tourism destinations for Astro Tourism, Trekking, Hiking, Nature Camps and showcasing of Tribal Culture among others.

A village frozen in time and nestled amidst the breathtaking Himalayas, Jadung boasts of unmatched scenic beauty with its snow-capped mountains and lush green valleys. Located at an altitude of approximately 3800 meters and around 45-50 kilometers from Harsil, Jadung offers a picture-perfect landscape. The border village has been developed through sustainable and responsible tourism.

Jadung offers visitors an opportunity to immerse themselves in the beauty of the Himalayas and the traditional culture of Uttarakhand. In addition to its natural beauty, Jadung is also a hub for special interest tourism. Astro tourism enthusiasts can marvel at the stunning night sky, which is free from light pollution and offers an excellent opportunity for stargazing. The involvement of Uttarakhand Tourism Development Board (UTDB) in this initiative will not only help to promote tourism in Jadung but also encourage sustainable tourism practices in the region, leading to the conservation of the local environment, culture and community.

“Visitors can enjoy stunning natural beauty, indulge in thrilling adventure activities, witness the area’s rich cultural heritage while in Jadung,” says Sachin Kurve, IAS, Secretary of Tourism and CEO of UTDB, Government of Uttarakhand adding that the Board has been working towards developing and promoting lesser-known destinations in the state to reduce the pressure on popular tourist destinations.

For adventure lovers, Jadung and its surroundings offer an array of activities such as trekking, hiking, Bird Watching as well as nature camps. Visitors can also immerse themselves in the local culture by experiencing tribal culture and traditional architecture. The village retains its natural charm and has remained untouched by commercialization seen elsewhere in tourists spots.
