Days 2-3


Spend the next two days at leisure - explore or just relax, the choice is yours. There is plenty to see and do, in and around Rishikesh.

The gateway to the Garhwal Himalaya and one of the holiest towns in India, Hindus regard Rishikesh as highly as Muslims regard Mecca. Rishikesh has attracted pilgrims, poets, artists and mystics for thousands of years. The Beatles famously went to Rishikesh in the late 1960s and visited Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's ashram which is now closed. At Maharishi's ashram they composed over 40 songs including one titled 'The Happy Rishikesh Song'.

Pilgrims clad in loincloths tread the town’s dusty streets and camp on the banks of the sacred Ganges, which sweeps majestically through the town and out onto the great Indian plains. Head for Triveni Ghat to watch pilgrims participate in the daily worship ritual known as Aarti.

Apart from being a popular pilgrimage destination Rishikesh is equally popular with those who enjoy adventure activities. There are many scenic trekking trails to be found in surrounding Himalayas and great opportunities for white water rafting, kayaking and horse riding. Rishikesh is also the International capital of yoga & meditation. During your stay why not try out yoga at the local Ashram and afterwards relax with an Ayurvedic massage.
Overnight: Rishikesh  |  Breakfast x 2
