Rishikesh

Yoganagari

Rishikesh draws in visitors of all creeds with its wealth of ashrams and yoga and meditation teaching centers. The Beatles came here to stay at an ashram in the late 1960s, and the city's international reputation among those seeking a spiritual, or simply rejuvenating experience, has grown ever since. Head down to the river during your trip to Rishikesh to see the nightly fire ritual, ganga aarti, performed. The sacred Hindu city remains strictly vegetarian, with the consumption of alcohol deemed unlawful. Use our India trip itinerary builder site to arrange the details of your trip to Rishikesh and other destinations.
