Location

Rishikesh, India

Rishikesh is the ideal destination for yoga lovers with different shalas and ashrams scattered across the city. Located at the base of the Himalayas, the city features a remarkable view of the mountains with the Ganga an energetic river ebbing at its feet.


Lakshman Jhula is actually an adjoining bridge across the Ganga, along the old route to the holy shrines of Badrinath and Kedarnath. The Jhula has now become one of the most visited tourist spots of Rishikesh, not simply because of its ancient origin and religious sanctity, but also because of the grand temples and wonderful local market that have come to be developed around it. A thirteen story temple, called Terah Manzil, near the Lakshman Jhula, is very popular amongst visitors. The top floor of this temple gives a wonderful view of the surroundings.

Jolly Grant airport at Dehradun is the nearest airport to Rishikesh which is approximately 35 kilometres away. Popular carriers like Air India, Spice Jet and Jet Airways often have daily flights from New Delhi. Apart from Delhi, there is a flight from Lucknow to Dehradun as well. To commute to Rishikesh via land, there are tongas, taxis and rickshaws available. Whereas from other cities and states, buses and trains are operated by state transport corporations and private operators. One can also hire private vehicles to get there.

Food

100% vegetarian meals along with tea or juice. Malai Kofta is an in-demand dish for offering a vegetarian alternative to meatballs and submerged in a spice-y sauce. Palak Paneer is another favourite dish, being a spinach and cottage cheese combination that will allure your tastebuds. Rajma is a red kidney bean curry that tastes just as great (or even better) as your traditional curry. Mutter Paneer is another broth that combines cottage cheese with peas and is both a delight to the eye and to the tongue. Kaali Daal is a black lentil dish that is also a local favorite.
