Day 1

Rishikesh -

Yes Rishikesh..The Gateway of Himalaya! Yoga capital of world! City of temples! Rishimuniyo ki bhoomi !.... U can name it!!

When I need an escape, I don’t have to go far. I am blessed to live in a holy city Rishikesh where there is so much to see around. And I have barely scratched the surface of visiting every attraction and temple, even after 15 years of living here thereafter I moved to London 7 years ago but I travel to India ones in year . Since moving abroad I feel more closer and to my city, people, cultures, spiritual path and importance of life. I think is a great feeling isn't....

As you know Rishikesh is famous for yoga, ganga river , temples and lots of adventure activities like Bunjee Jumping, River rafting-kayak and Camping but Beside of I would like to share few places to stay or explore places around near Rishikesh.

These are just a handful of my favorite spots in my city. As a tourist or resident, laxman Jhula,Ram jhula, Chilla forest range , Triveni Ghat, Beatles Ashram, Swarg ashram, Shiv puri, marine drive. They are some of the best places to hang out in Rishikesh. But there are so, so many more amazing sights and temples near by Rishikesh.

I will tell you one of my favourite places and lesser known destinations which in 25 km far from Rishikesh.

Timli village, Rishikesh Uttarakhand

A village which is located lower part of Himalaya called shivalik mountain range comes under narendra nagar tehsil around 25 km from Rishikesh on badrinath national highway NH58. till then 5 km single road goes up to village, gives you all u need in your vacation in mountains.

Life in mountains is always be a simlpe living with big hearty people. They grow mostly everything which is enough to live, I seen full rooms of pototo, ginger, turmeric, chiili, lentils, vegetables which you can go collect and starts cooking. As my Profession, I am chef so I loved to cooked with all those organic spices, vegetables, fruits and fat, whenever I came here I like to cook something because Its gives me more confidence to my cooking skills with great food ingredients.
