I did the Kunjapuri Sunrise Trek in November. Parts of this experience were great, but be aware that the trek itself is less pleasant than you might imagine because of the amount of overgrown weeds covering the path for a lot of the journey.

The great things:
- Miss Anju (our guide) and her daughter were absolutely lovely people and great to talk to
- I was picked up from my accommodation and dropped back at lunchtime, which was great
- The sunrise view over the mountains was wonderful
- I enjoyed stopping for chai at a village along the way
- The waterfall was a nice place to stop but the view over the mountains is definitely the main attraction

What to be aware of before you book this trek - very similar to a previous review:
- You need to be fit. It's downhill all the way so hard on the leg muscles, and quite slippery - I was fine as I do quite a bit of hiking, but glad to borrow one of Miss Anju's poles (which I wouldn't usually use)
- I'd estimate at least 50% of the 9km walk was quite overgrown, largely with lantana (a weed) which is very scratchy and not that pleasant to push through. Although I love hiking and don't mind a challenge, this wasn't really a fun challenge. Because it was present for so much of the hike, it just detracted from the experience and if I'd known about it, I would have thought twice about booking this trek
- Wear long sleeves and pants, walking shoes, hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. Wear clothes that are rip-proof or that you don't mind getting torn - mine got quite ripped. Bring a jumper for the morning and plenty of water and a snack.

Om is the best guide we met in India and we highly raccomend him. He has a big passion for his job and a great love for what he explanes. Without Om, we couldn t understand many things about Induism and Indian culture, in Rishikesh and in the other Holy Cities we visited after Rishikesh. We spent three days with Om: one in Rishikesh, one in the sorrounding area and one in Haridwar. Everything was perfect, the organization of the visits was super. We also raccomend to stay at Om guesthouse with him and his family. The place is very nice and very clean, close to everything but far enough from the noise of the main street.

This is a review of the Kanchapuri Sunrise Trek.

I am SO GLAD thatI did this trek but I was SO SORE afterwards. It was hard on my legs, especially my knees. You start at the top (please remove shoes and step into the Kanchapuri temple to pay respects), at about 1600 meters, and descend to Rishikesh at about 400 meters... and you will be hiking downhill for several hours. Downhill ounds easy, but it is a challenge. Some parts are overgrown jungle, slippery, steep, rocks, unstable. Use strong boots, long pants and long-sleeve shirt. Use hiking poles if you have them. Sun hat, sunglasses, sunscreen. Warm layers (it starts off cold!).

I had a very clear morning, fortunately. Stunning scenery of the Himaialaya. (I do not suggest doing this trek on a cloudy or foggy day, however, because you will miss the views.)

Om is a wonderful person and guide. He clearly loves the outdoors, and sharing the Himalaya with his guests. He spoke at length about his life, religion, Krishna, social and political views, etc. It was a fascinating conversation.

Highly recommended if you are fit and able. But caution if you are not

Om was a great tour guide! He made Rishikesh accessible for us tourists. He worked with us for the timings and itinerary. The car was clean and easy to travel in. I would highly recommend Om and Rishikesh Day Tours!

I had a wonderful tour with Mr Om of Haridwar and Rishikesh, it exceeded my expectations and I would totally recommend his service to everyone. Mr Om has a calming presence, touring with him felt like being shown around by a friend (who is also teaching me new things) Very few people out there that are so genuine.
I felt safe and comfortable through out.
Additionally he kindly adapted the tour for me so I could visit both towns in the time I had available. He organised a taxi to pick me up from the airport to drop me to my Ashram so I could check in before I started my tour, then dropped me back again that evening. Which meant I had less to worry about. Plus he was super understanding as my check in took much longer that expected and waited for me. The driver was also great, he was very polite and drove perfectly.
I would definitely go on another tour with Mr Om next time I'm travelling here, there's so much to see in this beautiful part of the country. Thank you very much for a great day!

Our guide, Om was such an amazing tour guide. He talked about very complex concepts in a very day to day way and with great English.
By the end of the tour we felt that we understand Rishikesh and Hinduism better.
We really recommend!

I enjoyed a beautiful Rishikesh afternoon with Anju (female tour guide) who took me on a very relaxed walk to shop for Sari’s, visit the fruit markets, some temples and much more! We had lots of lovely sitting down to view the town and rest. Anju was very generous with her time, very helpful at communicating and very knowledgeable of her home town! I’m very excited to one day return and bring my family to tour and stay at her ‘Om Homestay’ near Tapovan. VERY MUCH GRATITUDE!
