Rishikesh Overview

Situated in the northern state of Uttarakhand and 25 kms from Haridwar, Rishikesh is a place that unites the pilgrims for the beginning of their Char Dham Yatra. As it is a gateway to the Himalayas and cold regions, the weather here remains humid throughout the year. Moreover, popular beliefs about Lord Rama's penance in Rishikesh and presence of the famous Laxman Jhula and Ram Jhula makes this place one of the preferred destinations for tourists.


Saints of prominent stature bestowed their knowledge of Ayurveda and yoga on Rishikesh thousands of years ago. Therefore, it is widely known as the world capital of Yoga today. Reckoned as an esteemed religious destination, pilgrims can find solace in the Neelkanth Mahadev Temple, Bharat Mandir, Trayambakeshwar Temple or Swarg Ashram. It not only offers a spoonful of spirituality to the visitors but also a dose of thrilling sport activities. White water rafting, rappelling, camping, cliff jumping, rock climbing and bungee jumping are some of the adventure activities that one can go for in Rishikesh.
