January 31 (TravelAndy): Almora, located in the India’s mountain state of Uttarakhand, has come up with Heaven Almora, an Android application that will serve as a tourist guide to the visitors, TOI said.
The app, designed by the disaster management department of Almora, is aimed at providing tourists information about the tourist attractions of the place, weather advisories including road blockades, landslide and rainfall.
