Rishikesh, the city besides the Ganges & in the lap of the Himalayas. The city where you'll find eternal devotion along with many thrilling activities. It is perfect for a family as well as bachelors. Rishikesh is an alcohol free and traffic free city. The sacred ganga is so pleasant and divine which attracts you towards its beauty. Rishikesh is also known as the Yoga capital of India. What visitors mean by “Rishikesh” is the area of Laxman Jhula and Tapovan, a few miles north of Rishikesh town itself. Two bridges span the vibrantly emerald Ganges that runs between the cliffs here: the Laxman Jhula Bridge and the Ram Jhula Bridge.
If you like but of peace and quiet,I would highly recommend you staying in camps in Mohanchatti. Taking a quiet stroll to soak up the Ganges air, will inevitably lead you into conversations with strangers, music on ghats by the river and more. For the action driven – Rishikesh offers white water rafting and hiking opportunities a-plenty. But I also fell in love with how I felt there. There’s something in the air – I found – that gets to you. Maybe it was the daily yoga, maybe it was the spray from the Ganges. Maybe it was the magic of the meditation hall at Aurovalley. All I know is that I felt more relaxed and at peace than I can remember feeling for a long time.
