Rishikesh Tour Packages

Rishikesh(pronounced as Hrsikesa) is a city in the district of Dehradun within the state of Uttarakhand in India. It is located at the base of the grand Himalayas. This city is often referred to as the ‘Gateway to Garhwal Himalayas’. Not just this but this city is also known as the ‘Yoga capital of the world’. Rishikesh is Located at a distance of 45 km from the state capital Dehradun and 25 km from the city of Haridwar.

It is regarded as the pilgrimage centre for all those who follow Hinduism and has a number of places to visit, both for the solo travelers and the family ones. Rishikesh is regarded as one of the holiest places in India. For this particular reason Non-Vegetarian food and alcohol is strictly prohibited in this area. In the month of September,2015 the Ministry of Tourism, Government of India declared Rishikesh and Haridwar as the first cities to be declared as the “Twin national cities of Heritage”.

Coming to the history of Rishikesh the holy city, its name Rishikesh which is pronounced as Hrsikesa is a name of lord Vishnu composed of ‘hrsika’ meaning 'senses' and ‘isa’ meaning 'lord', thus collectively 'Lord of the Senses'. Another legend from the pages of Hindu mythology states that long back once a ferocious fire broke out in Rishikesh due to which Lord Shiva had cursed Lord Agni( Hindu God of fire ). As a result Lord Agni prayed here for reparation of his sins and from that time Rishikesh is also known as ‘Agni Tirtha’ or the holy place to pray to Lord Agni.

Lakshman Jhula

Rishikesh is not only about religious beliefs, ghats or temples; within this ancient city, you can also witness some of the architectural marvels and structures as well! One such structure, the Lakshman Jhula, which is also one of the not to be missed places to visit in Rishikesh, is a suspension bridge that connects Tehri and Pauri districts of Uttarakhand.

The existence of this bridge dates back to the age of Ramayana. According to the legends, Lakshman; brother of Lord Rama, crossed the holy Ganga River at this spot over a jute bridge. Centuries after this pious incident, a 284ft hanging bridge was built in the same spot by Rai Bahadur Surajmal Jhunjhunwala.

However, the bridge got washed away during the epidemic flood of 1924, and later, a pillar-less suspension bridge was erected at the same spot. The architecture brilliance of Lakshman Jhula and its proximity to several sacred places make it one of the most visited tourist places in Rishikesh.

Deoria Chandrashila Trek

Deoriatal is maybe the main trek on our rundown that gives most extreme returns for the exertion put in. There are three things that are truly staggering about the Deoriatal to Chandrashila top trek. In any case, Deoriatal has the best backwoods trek amongst all our treks. On the off chance that you take the area between Deoriatal lake and Bhrujgali camp, it is infrequently shocking to envision the amount of assortment wildernesses can be in.

There are segments with thick lush trees, there are greenery secured trails through concealing passages and there are trails that weave through clearings in the wildernesses. Also, we camp blast amidst the woodland in a completely open clearing at Rohini Bugyal.
