What to see in Rishikhola?
Reshi Khola is the place where the mountains embrace the forest and the forest embraces the river.
The forest surrounding Rishikhola is the home for many exotic Himalayan birds like Himalayan Bulbul, White Capped Water Redstart, Plumbeous Water Redstart, Tricolour Shrike, Green Magpie, and Great Barbet making it an ideal place for bird photographers.
The forest endowed with flora and fauna. In summer, you can find the vibrant vista of blooming rhododendron.
The amazing landscapes of the flowing river and the greenery of mountains are mind-blowing. In one word it is the heaven for the photographers.
It is also the good place for trekking. Even, everyone has to trek at least 2-3 Km down to reach the cottages on the bank of the river from the hillside road as the cars cannot go there.
I don’t recommend anyone, who has arthritis or any other problem in the limbs, to go there.Even, those, who have small kids of 1-3 years, think twice to go there because parents have to carry their children during trekking through the narrow, rocky roads. But, the trekking is really amazing and exciting. My first experience of rock climbing happened in the village of Reshi Khola.
