Best Trekking Tours in Rishikesh

Himalayas mean adventure to most who wish to visit here and these trekking tours in Rishikesh are one of the best bets that anyone can play to get all the adrenaline rush through their bodies at the mention of their names. Rishikeh, small religious town in the state of Uttarakhand is famous for the spiritual experiences that one can go through here. But what this place is more famous for are the adventurous experiences that are sure to bring about a kind of enthusiasm that will change the way one lives and also for its best places to visit. Amongst all that is the prominent and strong name of the adventure of trekking. And while there are a lot of places in the Himalayas to trek in or around, the reason why Rishikesh should be chosen as your next favourite for trekking is that of the variety in the landscapes, difficulties and beauty of all these treks.

Talking about variety, Rishikesh trekking routes include the majestically beautiful waterfall treks nearby. At just 5 km from the famous Lakshman Jhula lie the famous Garud Chatti and Phool Chatti waterfalls, which are also amongst the most famous picnic spots around Rishikesh. Lying on the well-known Neelkanth road, the place is easily accessible and the trek is filled with photo ops of the serene beauty around the place. Some 3 km away from Garud Chatti on the same way lies the Phool Chatti, which is a rather difficult trek because of the trail is slightly slippery. Also equally famous are the names of the Neer Garh and Patna Waterfalls treks for being a short trek or hike away from the city. Where the former is famous for being a rather challenging trek, the other one is famous for being a short walk in the park to naturally beautiful falls.

Apart from Camping under the starry nights and rafting in the hold of Ganges, trekking in Rishikesh also takes you through the amazing green mountain trails and onto some of the most amazing temples located amidst panoramic views of the mountains. Take the Nilkanth Mahadev, for example. Located on the top of a mountain at a height of 1,330m above sea level, the route up to the temple is one of the most beautiful stretches of trekking routes, spanning up to 14 km. When you look down from the top, the scenery of dense forests rich with a diverse variety of trees and animals that inhabit the place. Imagine walking in the forests and coming across some of the most amazing sightings of wild animals and birds. The long yet easy trek seems to be worth it all.

Treks in Rishikesh may be an adventure that you might never forget, especially when you are greeted by the colour green as far as the eye goes, but another whole new experience that everyone expects while trekking in the Himalayas and must have is walking in the snow, amidst clouds laden with raindrops. And although you may not find these in the city, most of these treks have Rishikesh as their starting point. Take for example the Roopkund Trek. The experience of trekking amidst the snow to a lake that is home to hundreds of Skeleton and to a horde of mysteries is an experience that many find hard to put into words. Exhilarating, daunting, adventurous and mystical are probably the first words that come to anyone’s mind. Experiencing some of the most beautiful sunrises during the 8-day trek, Roopkund Lake offers unbeatable views of the famous mount Trishul, as well.

Uttarakhand is lovingly called the abode of gods. The religious importance of a lot of places in and around Rishikesh have a fame that attracts people from afar throughout the year. This also includes the names of the Gangotri Glacier and the pilgrimage of Kedarnath. You get to know about many things you can enjoy here, Trekking from Rishikesh may not take you to these places but can take you to one place from where you can get unbeatable views of both of these marvels of Himalayas. The Nag Tibba trek starting from Rishikesh and Dehradun takes you to the top of the hill with a halt at the Nag Tibba Temple for an amazing camping experience. When you trek to the top the next day, the majestic view of the Kedarnath Peak and the Gangotri are sure to take your breath away.

One of the most coveted and equally famous treks from Rishikesh is the famous Valley of Flowers Trek. As the name suggests, the trek takes you to a beautiful valley situated deep in the heart of District of Chamoli in Uttarakhand. Often mesmerizing to the point of disbelief, the Valley of Flowers trek brings to you a majestic sight of a Himalayan valley covered with flowers of different shades and hues. And even more beautiful than the destination is the trek that leads there, starting from Govindghat, to Ghangaria, and then finally in the arms of the beautiful Valley of Flowers

Another famous trek from Rishikesh is the famous trail to Kuari Pass. As you start on the trek through the ages-old Rhododendron forests, you will be greeted by views of some of the most majestic hills of the Himalayas, including India’s highest mountain, the Nanda Devi Peak. After leading you to the Kuari Pass top, the trek leads you to the amazing skiing destination of India, Auli. Famous for an up-close view of Nanda Devi, this trek just keeps getting better with time.

Trekking tours in Rishikesh are sure one of the best things that anyone can try their hands at and must try, too. And for your next adventure in the Himalayas, this guide is going to be the best of places to find where to head next for your fill of adventure through trekking.
