Don't go to Rishikesh at least as a weekend get away option. Don't ever do it to yourself.
I insist. Go in an off season maybe. but never dare to go there during the weekend. The whole Delhi is going to be there. The rude men staring at you. The nosy aunty from the neighborhood. The overpriced and full guest houses. Even that ananda spa visit won't be worth it if you are struck in delhi traffic in rishikesh.
On the positive side, the freedom cafe pancake was still worth the visit. The view is without a doubt one of the good ones in rishikesh. And it had drizzled when we sat there...
The little Buddha cafe was also very good, but too crowded.
