Rishikesh Travel Guide

Overview

Rishikesh, in Uttarakhand as a tourism destination is an ideal spot for both adventure and pilgrimage. With its picturesque mountains lush green with tall trees and shrubs and river Ganga running along with you throughout the city, Rishikesh, known as The Gateway to the Garhwal Himalayas, happens to be the perfect spot to attain peace and tranquility. An adventure enthusiast’s delight is white water rafting at Shivpuri, Brahmpuri, Marine Drive and Kaudilya. Other adventure activities include bungee jumping, flying fox and the excitement of being on the giant swing can be had at Mohan Chatti, which is about 15kms from Lakshman Jhula. For the foodies there are numerous road side dhabas that serve vegetarian food mostly. Lakshman Jhula is a spot that visitors flock too to in obeisance to their gods and also feed the beautiful multi-coloured fishes. Once in Rishikesh and with some time on hand one can also visit Haridwar and Dehradun that are not too far from here on a India day tour to Rishikesh. .
