The temple is said to be constructed at the place where the chest of the Goddess had fallen while Lord Shiva carried her remains to Kailash to do her final rites.

Located just 25 km from Rishikesh, the Kunjapuri Temple is one of the most venerated places to visit in Rishikesh especially during Navratri (April & October) and Dusshera when thousands of devotees flock here to witness the grand celebrations.

At an altitude of 1645 mts, it lends a panoramic view of Gangotri, Swarga Rohini, Chaukhamba and Banderpunch peaks to the North and the sacred town of Rishikesh, Haridwar and the Doon valley to the South.

Kunjapuri Temple is an ideal place for light trekking lovers. There are multiple small distances as well as large distance treks you can do in Rishikesh from here. The Kunjapuri Temple Trek is recommended in the wee hours of the morning.

A vehicle ride to the temple followed by a flight of 80 steep steps right up to the top and steaming hot cup of chai. Wait for the sunrise right in the arms of divinity, which lights up the Great Himalayan peaks in a beautiful glow, eventually shining on the vast Indo-Gangetic plains and the Ganga river.

A five-mile trek down the hillock, with villages, farms and a splash at the Neer Gaddu waterfall is the perfect blend of bliss and tranquillity after a long tiring day.

Vashistha Cave

Vashistha Cave or Vashistha Gufa is an ancient cave where Sage Vashistha and his wife meditated for hundreds of years. According to Hindu mythology, Sage Vashista was a Manas Putra (human son) of Lord Brahma and one of the Saptarishi (great seven sages). The Vashishta Gufa situated in the middle of Gular trees and the sacred River Ganga is a perfect place for peace of mind and positive spiritual energy.

Over the years a small ashram was built near the cave known as Swami Purushottamanand ashram as well as some rooms outside the cave, where many sadhus live there permanently.

Located 25 km from Rishikesh on the Rishikesh-Badrinath road, all buses going towards Devprayag pass through this place. A flight of around 200 steps and you reach the entrance of the cave which only gets pitch dark as you go deeper.

The cave is properly maintained and the floor is strewn with white mats for about 12 people. The interior of the cave is filled with some aroma of burning oil and sticks making it a peaceful and spiritual meditational sanctuary.

At the end of the cave, there is a Shiv Linga where you normally find priests and other tourists engaged in worship and veneration. There is also another small cave outside the ashram called “Arundhati Cave” and an iron bridge across the river to the small yet beautiful Gular village.

The beach outside the cave is a perfect setting to relax and reflect with nature after a deep meditation and silent introspection.

For some thrill and adventure, you can also go to Shivpuri to indulge in the adventurous flying fox activity.

History of Rajaji National Park



The Rajaji National Park initially started as three separate national parks in Uttarakhand. The pre-existing natural abundance of the area, along with its thriving community of wildlife, flora and fauna and its idyllic weather served as the perfect premise for the establishment of these national parks.

In 1964, a stretch of the Dehradun Forest spanning 90 square kilometres was declared as the Motichur wildlife sanctuary. The Rajaji Wildlife sanctuary had existed since 1948 and the Chilla sanctuary since 1977 in Shivalik and Lansdowne respectively.

In 1983, these three parks were combined to form the Rajaji National Park as it stands today, which covers an area of over 820 square kilometres. In April 2015, Rajaji National Park received the status of a tiger reserve, making it the second reserve for tigers in Uttarakhand.

It remains one of the most picturesque and well-maintained national parks in the country. The government decided to name the park after one of the most renowned freedom fighters of the country- C. Rajagopalachari, who was known as Rajaji.

After playing a pivotal role in fighting for India’s independence, he was also the last Governor-General of post-independence India. He was awarded the Bharat Ratna for his services to the nation.

"Nestled in the midst of 9 hills offers breathtaking views of the Ganges. The camping experience is great. Hospitable staff. Food is decent. Weather is great. Its a little far off and drive might be a bit tiring considering lot of stoppages in the road up here due to road construction. If you expect it to be along the river on a beach then you shall be disappointed. In fact its located at a steep height from the road and for guys from the plains it shall be a pretty steep climb of 50 odd steps with luggage. For the price it offers a lovely memory. "

It was a wonderful experience of my life. They provide you with a camera with which you can record your video while enjoying this swing. The staff was great and provided us with a brief intro session. After that, you will be taken towards the platform and the scariest thing was the moment you jumped from the platform. It was a breathtaking experience.

This place is away from the city. So, it was a long road trip to reach there but luckily we have our tickets booked in advance. I booked these tickets for my family with the help of Thrillophilia. Due to advance booking, we were not concerned about the adventure. After reaching there the staff took a brief session and then we enjoyed this activity.
