Rishikesh India

Rishikesh, a most tranquil place in northern Uttar Pradesh, surrounded by hills and bisected by the wide and sluggish Ganges, is often claimed as the `Yoga Capital of the World’. Back in the 1960s Rishikesh gained instant fame as the site where The Beatles came to stay with their guru, the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. It is an excellent place to meditate and study yoga. Rishikesh is also a good starting Laxman Jhula point for treks to Himalayan pilgrimage centres such as Badrinath,coach outlet online, Kedarnath , Gangotri, Yamnotri. Rishikesh is also called the gateway to the Himalayan Shrines of Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri and Yamunotri.

Situated 24 km upriver from Haridwar, at the confluence of the Chandrabhaga and Ganga, Rishikesh has long been a spiritual centre. It is believed that the sage Raibhya Rishi did severe penance here and as a reward, God appeared to him in the form of Hrishikesh. Numerous ashrams are located in Rishikesh India, some of which are recognized internationally as centers of philosophical studies,hollister, yoga and meditation.

Every year by U.P. Tourism organises an international yoga week between 2nd and 7th of February. For the adventurous, there are opportunities for white water rafting on the Ganga.

The climate here is continental type but its location in the foot hills gives it a pleasurable weather condition throughout the year. One can travel to Rishikesh any time of the year.

The town of Rishikesh lies in the foothills of the Garhwal region. It is the starting point for pilgrim routes to the four dhams of Uttarakhand — Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri and Yamunotri,lunettes de soleil ray ban. It is the gateway to the upper Garhwal region. The Ganga is worshipped here and it flows through the town. After this it goes down to the plains at Haridwar. It is believed that meditation at this place leads to attainment of salvation. There are many temples-some ancient, some new along the river Ganges. The River side is dotted by the ashrams of Sadhus and sages.

The road to the north from Rishikesh leads to Narendra Nagar(named after Maharaja Narendra Shah) and beyond to Tehri. These roads separate away and reach the upper parts of Garhwal.
