After graduating from my design school on August 11th, 2018 plan was to take a trip!!!! Due to circumstances, I ended up taking this trip in December which worked out well since I got to experience the first snowfall of the season. I booked a trek to Kedarkantha through Indiahikes and decided to chill by myself in Rishikesh for 2-3 days.

Day 1. December 7th 2018, Landed in Dehradun Airport at 4:30 PM took a taxi to Zostel Rishikesh where I was going to spend my next 3days. After a pleasant drive through the ghats I reached Zostel around 5:30 PM in the evening. Since it was already late to explore anything I winded up my day with some hot masala chai and aloo paratha.

Day 3. December 8th 2018 This day I decided to walk places, I took a walk around Lakshman Jhula and ended up eating a late breakfast at the Beatles Cafe and continued walking to Beatles Ashram via. Ram Jhula. After a long walk through the gallis of Rishikesh, I finally reached the ashram and was awed by the nostalgia it has to offer to one who visits the place.

After the Aarthi, I took a local shared auto to the Zostel chilled with few travellers and I bid Rishikesh goodbye until next time.
