Rishikesh

Rishikesh draws in visitors of all creeds with its wealth of ashrams and yoga and meditation teaching centers.
Step out of Rishikesh with an excursion to Badrinath Temple in Badrinath--about 34 minutes away. There's still lots to do: head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, snap pictures at Lakshman Jhula, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Parmath Niketan Temple, and steep yourself in history at The Beatles Ashram.

To find photos, reviews, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Rishikesh travel planner.

Gwalior to Rishikesh is an approximately 10-hour car ride. You can also fly. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Mon) to allow time to drive to Haridwar.

An ancient city on the banks of the Ganges, Haridwar has been an important Hindu pilgrimage center since time immemorial.
On the 18th (Mon), take in the spiritual surroundings of Chandi Devi Temple, take in the spiritual surroundings of Daksheshwar Mahadev, then admire all the interesting features of Gurukul Kangri University, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Mansa Devi Temple, and finally make a trip to Lacchiwalla. Here are some ideas for day two: take in the spiritual surroundings of Har ki Pauri, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Parmeshwar Mahadev Temple, then look for all kinds of wild species at Neel Dhara Pakshi Vihar, and finally buy something for everyone on your list at The Pentagon Mall.
