Rishikesh is the might of the Himalayas. Called the "Gateway to the Ganges," it is a pilgrimage for the devouts and a haven for adrenaline seekers. Rishikesh is the touchstone for Hinduism and spirituality where one can reconnect with nature as you sit on the banks of one of the most ancient rivers of India. Here, river Ganga rages across rocky terrain, accumulating rapid after rapid making it one of the most exhilarating rafting experiences in the country.
Four kilometres upstream from the main city of Rishikesh, the peaceful Tapava Village, lets you explore the ancient ways of yoga and meditation in ashrams and take long forest-walks. Any Rishikesh rafting packages will include bonfire, rappelling, rock climbing to satiate your adventuresome soul. Experience the chilling thrill of plummeting from the cliffs of Mohan Chatti, India's highest Bungee Jumping point. The Rishikesh camping package will bring you unforgettable nights amidst the mystic mountains and starry skies, a cosy tent and some delicious hot food after a long trek.
Be sure to visit the formidable bridge of ‘Ram Jhula’ over the river Ganga, and home to many popular Ashrams. Visiting pilgrims usually find themselves at mystical temples enshrined with picturesque designs and attending the evening Ganga aarti connects one to the higher self. Legend has it that during festivities, the gods themselves descend on to the terrain of Rishikesh and the city comes alive with a spiritual vibrancy and cosmic energy.
