Hikes

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

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 the Neelkanth Temple. You can cross the river via the Lakshman Jhula and visit the neighbouring temples and ashrams for evening Arti, and also take a dip into the holy Ganges.
