The Ghost Villages of Uttarakhand

Local farmers, traders and people of the hills are migrating towards the cities, which has led to villages where once societies resided that are now abandoned.

According to a survey by Uttarakhand Migration Commission (2016-17) 968 villages have been declared “Ghost Villages”. These villages have been completely abandoned by the natives of the area. Now these villages are struggling for their existence.

Our effort is to spread awareness on reverse migration "Palayan" which is perhaps the biggest impediment in the sustainable development of mountain villages, by encouraging ethical exploration of these Himalayan communities and responsible tourism which can provide new employment opportunities and can also preserve the culture of Uttarakhand.
