Rishikesh was discovered more than thirty years ago by the Beatles who came to the Himalayas in search of spiritual enlightenment. Lonely planet describes Rishikesh as "the Yoga Capital of the World" and also "a magnet for spiritual seekers".
It is here in Rishikesh that the holy river Ganges leaves the mountains and makes the long journey across the northern plains before joining the Bay of Bengal.
Rishikesh has attracted poets, artists and mystics for thousands of years. Rishikesh is all about spiritual freedom and harmony. Incase you are planning a solo tour, this is definitely the place for you.
You can also learn to play sitar or tabla or learn the art of meditation at the many ashrams in the area or utilize it as an ideal base camp for trekking in the nearby Himalayas and white water rafting.
