Rishikesh is a sacred city in Uttarakhand which lies nestled in the foot hills of the Himalayas standing on the banks of the Ganga. This place is known as the “Land of Gods” and also acknowledged as the World Capital of Yoga. Several people from all over the world pour into the city for the International Yoga week.

Travellers and adventure enthusiasts venture here to beat the heat in the White waters in the Ganges. The melting snow from the Himalayas passes through this city providing the optimum current required for the Rafting enthusiasts. There are camps set up from October to May on the Banks of the Ganges.  

Besides adventure, it is also a paradise for the pious. Rishikesh is dotted with domes of ancient temples where pilgrims from all over the world come to seek blessings from the myriad gods and goddesses of the Hindu culture. It is also the starting point for the Chardham Yatra.

Rejuvenating through Yoga, cleansing your body, inhaling fresh mountain air, kriyas and Pujas, and fun- filled adventure are some of the key things the town has to offer.
