Rishikesh draws in visitors of all creeds with its wealth of ashrams and yoga and meditation teaching centers.
Change things up with these side-trips from Rishikesh: Haridwar (Har ki Pauri & Ganga Aarti at Haridwar). There's much more to do: let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, take in the spiritual surroundings of Triveni Ghat, contemplate the long history of The Beatles Ashram, and indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas.

The self-styled "Queen of Hill Stations," Mussoorie features scenery that can be spoken of in regal terms.
On the 12th (Tue), don't miss a visit to Lal Tibba, admire the sheer force of Kempty Falls, and then stroll around Company Garden. Keep things going the next day: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Gun Hill, trek along Camel's Back Road, then head outdoors with The Real Adventure Sports - Sky Walk, and finally get engrossed in the history at Mussoorie Heritage Centre.

Plan my Mussoorie trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
