Mukhba is Glorified by the Arrival of Ganga Mata in Winters

With the launch of the winter Char Dham Yatra, the UP Government seeks to serve a dual purpose. On one hand the tourists and devotees who can travel only during this time attain spiritual peace and a Darshan of the divine and on the other hand the economy of the state is also boosted as local traders benefit from the tourist flow… the Zila has religious Mathas and Mandir besides beautiful lakes and scenic beauty. The winter Char Dham journey has been started by the Rajya Sarkar during the last 2 years. The first step of Gangotri winter Yatra begins at Mukhba where Mata Ganga has already arrived for her winter sojourn. If this endeavour of the government succeeds then the religious entity of the state will be boosted and tourism will be enhanced. There are many significant features of Mukhba like a rich historical and spiritual lineage apart from temples and lakes.

The people living in plains usually reel under heavy fogs and smog in winter but a visit to Mukhba will rejuvenate the senses with its scenic beauty, cheerful sunshine and pristine blue skies. The Zila Mukhba is flanked by the snow-covered mountains and has many dazzling blue lakes.
