Rishikesh draws in visitors of all creeds with its wealth of ashrams and yoga and meditation teaching centers.

There's lots more to do: pick up some local products at Cooking Masala, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, snap pictures at Lakshman Jhula, and let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour.
