Super adventure, a rejuvenated experience

I had gone to mori for a adventure trip for 4 days. It was super fun. White water river rafting in ice cold water, trekking in the nearby hills, rock climbing and rappling, the beautiful location of river side camp, excellent food and cut off from the outside world. Fully renovated. Took a cab from Dehradun for a approx 5 hr drive to mori through the hills. Pleasant experience

Mori Overview

Mori is a village, which is situated on the bank of River Tons in the Jaunsar Bawar region in Uttarkashi District of Uttarakhand. Located in Garhwal region of the district, Mori serves as a gateway to the Tons Valley.

Surrounded by paddy fields, green forests and mountains, this small hamlet lies around 3700 feet above sea level and is a part of Tons valley. Forests in Mori are populated with tall pines, deodars, chestnut and jamun trees.

According to legendary stories famous in the region, River Tons was created by the tears of the demoness known as Surpanakha. The region was created on February 24, 1960 from the parganas of Rawain and Uttarkashi of Rawain tehsil, which was part of Tehri Garhwal District. During the 15th century, it was under the rule of the Gharwal Kingdom. The Gorkhas of Nepal invaded the region in 1803, but were ousted from the region in 1815 by the British.

Mori is a popular tourist spot, where water activities like white water river rafting and kayaking can be enjoyed. The main attractions of this beautiful hamlet are the ancient Duryodhana Temple and the Lunagad Creek. The hilly terrain of this region also makes it a popular destination among trekkers. With legendary temples, mythological figures and architectural structures, Mori has a rich cultural diversity.

People of this region believe that the mythological warriors and kings, Kauravas and Pandavas, were their ancestors. Moreover, the local folk worship Kauravas, who are otherwise considered as the anti-heroes in the Mahabharata. People smoking earthen pipes, coconut hookahs or bidis can be commonly seen in the region. Wearing ornaments made out of silver is a common tradition among the local women.

In order to reach this tiny hamlet, tourists can take flights to the Jolly Grant Airport, which is located in Dehradun. The nearest international airport is Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi, which is 424 km away from Mori.

Dehradun Railway Station is the nearest railhead, which can be used to reach the destination. Regular buses from Mussoorie and Dehradun are also available for Mori. The best time to visit Mori is from April through June, as the weather is pleasant and favours outdoor activities.
