Hikes

 
One can look forward to having an adventurous journey across the several soft treks here, and simultaneously enjoy the surrounding greenery, the singing birds and the beautiful views from the mountain top. The Glasshouse to Sirasu is a scenic hike along both banks of the river, with the forest on one side and the river on another. The best time to see wild jungle fowls, peacocks, langurs and deer is early morning after sunrise. You will walk across two suspension bridges which hang over the rapids of the river. The local communities have been using these trails from generations. Now it is your turn!

Raja Ji National Park


One of the largest national parks in North India. The Rajaji National Park is situated along the Indo Gangetic plain. This is the home to the tigers, exotic birds, leopards, Asiatic elephants, bears, jackals, barking deer, chital, nilgai and a variety of ape species. If you are an avid bird watcher or a wildlife enthusiast, you are bound to get mesmerised and return with wonderful memories as migratory birds from all over the world flock to this place.

Temple Visits

 
The Ganges is so special – not just the physical location of Rishikesh where the river stops cascading and flows like a sheet of glass onto the plains, but because of the great spiritual value, it has attained over the centuries. Descending from its source, holy men with matted hair bask their ash-smeared bodies here in the sun, giving this pilgrimage the name Rishikesh. A few of the prominent temples located here are Bharat Temple and Lakshman Jhula and the Neelkanth Temple. You can visit the neighbouring temples and ashrams for evening Arti, and also take a dip into the holy Ganges.
