Spending 9 days in Rishikesh for rs. 2800
It was another day where this solo traveler decided to go alone for another trip. This time I decided to go to Rishikesh and no one believes that I spend 9 days in Rishikesh for rs.2800 but that's true.
I live in Chandigarh so I take a bus to Ambala for Rs.35. Then I take the train from Ambala to Rishikesh which costs me Rs.150. After reaching Rishikesh I did hitchhike to Lakshman Jhula because I booked a hostel there to stay. The price for the dorm room there was Rs.200. I reached there around noon. I put all my stuff in my dorm room and went for brunch to Little Budhha. I made friends there too. After lunch, I came back to my dorm. I was looking around so I get to know by the people there that this hostel has a beautiful rooftop(traveller dream hostel). I went to see. It was really beautiful. There was a beautiful sitting arrangement with Indian mattresses over there which takes my heart. And the view from the top was at another level. I sit there for hours for just that view. I met two people there from German and one from Ranchi. We became really good friends.
