Nestled amidst lush greeneries guarded by the breathtaking hills of northern Uttarakhand, the tranquil city of Rishikesh is often claimed as the `Yoga Capital of the World’. It gained instant fame when The Beatles came to stay with their guru, the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, in the 1960’s.
Boasting marvellous temples, pilgrimage sites and the magnificent Ganges River, every corner of this legendary place has stories to be told. But Rishikesh is not all spirituality and yoga.
Today, the city attracts tourists from all over the world for its numerous adventure sports such as white-water rafting, cliff-jumping, kayaking and camping. Known as the ‘Gateway to the Garhwal Himalayas’, Rishikesh is also a designated starting point for treks to numerous Himalayan pilgrimage centres and shrines.
Watersports fans can enjoy rafting down the Ganges River amid the rocky mountains and natural wood surroundings. Thrill-seekers can choose to dive off a cliff from a dizzying height of 35 or face the superb rapids of the Ganges on a kayak. Meanwhile, waterfall trekking offers a gentler opportunity to get close to nature while being accessible to people of all age groups – perfect as a family activity.
Explore the destination where excitement meets tranquillity within the backdrop of tall mountains, amidst the gushing sound of crystal clear waters. This is Rishikesh – the land of gods, adventure, and peace.
Rishikesh is situated a half-hour drive away from the nearest airport, Jolly Grant (also known as Dehradun Airport) which offers direct flights from international airports in New Delhi, Mumbai, Lucknow and Srinagar through popular carriers such as Air India, Spice Jet and Jet Airways. In addition, the city is connected by a network of buses to key cities such as New Delhi, Haridwar, and Dehradun, and is also accessible by train via Haridwar.
