A Perfect Weekend Break at Mount Abode
Mount Abode is located near an old heritage village on top of the mighty Shivalik range, overlooking the majestic Ganga. Amazing accommodation is in dome tents placed under thatch huts in a huge area.
What makes it Unique
Unlike a typical camping location in Rishikesh, Mount Adobe is on the hill top. The views of the surrounding areas are absolutely breathtaking. The place is surrounded by nothing, but nature.
With picturesque views in all directions you can immerse yourself in nature. Relax in a hammock, watch the sun set, explore the local landscape by foot and unwind.
The 40 minutes trek to reach Mount Abode makes the trip even more exciting.
Despite being atop a mountain there are excellent facilities with western toilets and fresh drinking water. You will fall in love with the amazing food.
