We began the day with breakfast, at camp Wildex. I had Bread with Jam along with tea. Afterwards, I had Poori with Aloo too.Rock-Climbing:Rock-Climbing was arranged by the camp and some of us tried our hands on the same. I lazed out of this one as I had done it in Mukteshwar, which was more terrifying than this. Not super terrifying, but yes, you wouldn't dare look down in Mukteshwar.Coincidentally, I bumped into a college mate at the camp and we got busy in catching up! What a small world!
Rishikesh is a small town in the northern state of Uttarakhand in India. Scenically located where the Ganges River comes down from the Himalayas, Rishikesh catapulted to Western fame when the Beatles dropped by for a visit to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's ashram (now closed), and the town is still known as the World Capital of Yoga. Rishikesh is also the Gateway to the Himalayas. The Char Dham Yatra (Four Shrines Sacred Journey) ideally begins from Rishikesh. Hindu sages and saints have visited Rishikesh since ancient times to meditate in search of spirituality. White Water Rafting Rishikesh is very popular for its rafting on the River Ganga (Ganges). The months from September to December and March to June are considered as the best periods for the ultimate water rafting experience. There are a lot of easy treks available around Rishikesh. Some of them take you to beautiful and hidden waterfalls. These stunning natural wonders are 2-6 kms from Laxman Jhula and are hidden in neighbouring forests. One also has the option to trek to nearby Neelkanth Mandir.
