The ‘work from home’ concept has become the new normal for most of us amid the COVID-19 pandemic. No wonder, workcations are gaining popularity. Hotels and homestays in popular tourist destinations are allowing guests to have a unique work experience, surrounded by lush green mountains, coffee plantations and more. And to cash in on this trend, Uttarakhand Tourism has now launched a new ‘workcation’ initiative to let tourists work from the mountains in a socially distanced way.
Now You Can Work From Mussoorie, Dehradun, Nainital, Lansdowne And More
The secretary of Uttarkhand Tourism Dilip Jawalkar has announced a new ‘workcation’ concept to give people the ‘much-needed escape’ from the WFH woes. Nothing can perhaps come close to the picturesque charm of Uttarakhand. Some stunning views of the mighty Himalayas, a dash of forest greenery, with streams and rivers gurgling can give the needed respite from the boredom of the four walls of home. The cool weather, the fresh air and the splendid vistas will mesmerize your soul, soothe your tired eyes and improve your work efficiency for sure. With this new initiative of Uttarakhand Tourism, people will get the opportunity to work from marvellous locations like Mussoorie. Nainital, Dehradun, Almora, Lansdowne and more. Uttarakhand was also giving ₹1000 off to tourists on hotel bookings to boost tourism.

Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter, Uttarakhand Tourism has stated, “Find a perfect balance between a busy and relaxing life. The energy of hills and the adventures around make Uttarakhand a top choice of #workcation.
