We (Me and a friend) headed from Delhi in the morning around 7 a.m by car and stopped at a couple of places for breakfast and snack , still we reach Haridwar by 1 pm. We didn't stop in Haridwar but went to Rishikesh directly which took approx 40-50min. I had been to Rishikesh before, so i knew places for staying, so didn't made any prior booking. We stayed at one of the Yoga Center (near to the Famous German Bakery) which looked like this.

Day 3: We went to see Neergarh Waterfall. Entry fee is Rs. 30 for Indian citizen. It is natural waterfall with waterfalls at 2 different levels, Bridge is there to cross it. Lower level of Waterfall is easily accessible but crowded. Upper level of the waterfall is much more beautiful and less crowded as its difficult to reach because of steep climb.

Few snacks stalls available for serving magi, cold drinks, tea etc.
