Client's Feedback

Garhwal Trek "Thank you for the amazing trek. It was, for sure, one of my life's greatest adventures. We were lucky to see the Snow Bear and to go through many villages. The beautiful mountains, the people and the organization were all good, but most of all I would like to say that without Dipen (Guide) this trek would not be nearly as good as it was with him! His experience, calmness and knowledge are great. Dipen is by far the best guide I have traveled with." Andreas Gleason, Vancouver, Canada

UTTARAKHAND DESTINATION

Rishikesh

Rishikesh is surrounded by scenic beauty of the hills on three sides with Holy Ganga flowing through it. Located in the laps of lower Himalayas, this place is considered to be the access point of three other pilgrim places of Badrinath - Kedarnath, Gangotri and Yamunotri. Rishikesh is famous for its yoga sessions that are taught here by many yoga experts (yoga fair held annually in February). Beatle's Paul Saltzman drew inspiration from this place and visited the place in 1968 to learn Meditation and Yoga. One can go for trekking, river rafting and excursions to the Valley of Flowers. One can also visit Devprayag the junction of the Alaknanda and the Bhagirathi rivers. Dehradun, Haridwar, Mussoorie and Chila sanctuary are within reachable distance from here.

Reaching Rishikesh -
Rishikesh is just 24 Kms from Haridwar.
Air : The nearest airport to Rishikesh is Jolly Grant. This small airport is situated at a distance of about 24 km from the main Rishikesh town. However, air is not the preferred mode of transport for getting into the town. Reach Delhi International airport in India and take a train or bus route to Rishikesh.
Rail : Rishikesh is well connected with all the major towns and cities of India though some of the links can only be accessed from Haridwar.

Road : Rishikesh is 6 hours (250 kms) by bus from Delhi. Buses depart regularly throughout the day from ISBT. Rishikesh is very well connected by a network of roads to all major towns of Uttaranchal and surrounding areas.

Shopping in Rishikesh -
Being a pilgrimage place, the glamour of big shop bargains are absent but Rishikesh offers you handicraft items made of shells, beads and pearls. Sarees, kurtas, sheets and rugs can be purchased from here. You can buy these items from the government approved U.P handloom shop, Khadi Bhandar, Garhwal wool and craft shop etc.
