Rishikesh is a place of spirituality and meditation and is often referred to as the ‘Yoga Capital of the World’. Every year the Parmarth Niketan ashram holds the International Yoga Festival, attracting yogis from all over the world. For those looking for accommodation close to the ashram, the Green View by One Hotel is a good option, as it is only a 5-minute walk away.
Along the Ganges is The Beatles ashram, made famous by the English rock band. Here, they studied meditation and had their most productive songwriting period. Those making the pilgrimage might want to consider staying somewhere close by, such as the Hotel Nirvana Palace. A 10-minute walk down the river is also the Maharishi Mahesh ashram, an abandoned ashram practically absorbed by the surrounding forest.
While Rishikesh is most famous for yoga and relaxing massages, it is also a popular place for adventure. Its location against the Ganges makes it a good place to go whitewater rafting, bungee jumping, paragliding, kayaking or hot air ballooning. Located just outside of the city, a hotel in the Shivpuri region such as the Bull’s Retreat is another great location for those looking for a bit of excitement.
If you want a location close to good dining options, somewhere like the Narayana Resort and Spa will put you close to civilisation. From here you will also be in a good location to partake in another popular pastime in Rishikesh – café hopping. The food culture in Rishikesh is surprisingly varied with plenty of budget-friendly cafes such as the Pure Soul Café or Café Karma, just 5 minutes away.
Triveni Ghat is a holy site located at the confluence of the three rivers. Here you can experience the vibrant Hindu culture by attending Ganga Aarti ritual. The area around Triveni Ghat is not only full of ashrams and religious sites, but it is also close to the picturesque Rajaji National Park. Not only is the EllBee Ganga View close to the Triveni Ghat, but it also has a good view of the river.
