When a person is on a vacation, the last thing ruining their sightseeing is the ‘holiday’ on which any monument or park is closed. Here is a list of holidays and off days in Uttarakhand to help you plan your vacation accordingly. Most of the national festivals are common with rest of the India and just have different names like Dusshera being called Dasar. The list is divided into National and Public holidays since the public holidays are usually not fixed and since they are religious holidays (almost all) the dates change according to the current lunar calendar.
