God's place on earth

This is one place in India where you will find as many foreigners as Indians. Quite favourite with them. People generally go there to take a dip in Ganga and some go there to find spiritualism. I am practically in love with Rishikesh because this place actually makes you spiritual. There is something in the air that makes you peaceful!

There are people coming from all walks of life, some go there just to have fun around weekend, with rock climbing and rafting, some seek fun by putting up in tents. But to me Rishikesh holds serenity that no other place can offer.

If you want to the character of the place, attend ganges' aarty in the evening! A completely transforming experience. You will find everyone behaves like one big family at this congregation.

The mountains and ganges emerging from these mountains takes you another height of consciousness.

I generally go there to get in touch with myself, to

Haridwar

If you make Rishikesh your base. There are many places you can touch upon like Haridwar, where again there are many places to see like Har ki paidhi and other famous ghats, Mansa Devi.

This is the place where river Ganges touches the plane for the first time, hence place is considered to be very significant in Hindu mythology
