Over the years, Rishikesh has become a hot spot for all kinds of tourists and travellers. From religious people making Rishikesh their yearly pilgrimage, and taking the ritualistic dip in the Holy Ganga, to friends and family coming to spread the ashes of their deceased loved ones in the river, to those looking for a spiritualistic experience and taking up yoga and meditation, and finally to people looking to pump up some adrenaline into their blood. From yoga, to temples, to cafes, to adventure sports, Rishikesh has got it all.
However, this scale of the city's popularity has also given way to over tourism with tourists everywhere at any point of the year. Such a situation calls for a shift from the ordinary- to some unexplored, refreshing places around the city that will help channel the real traveller in you!
