Book a taxi in advance from Rishikesh market taxi stand. Leave 1.5 - 2 hours before sunrise, i.e. around 3:00 a.m.
The sunrise from this point is an amazing experience

Mata Kunjapuri Devi Temple is a Shaktipeeth and hence very important among temples in India. The road to the temple is very good and a car takes about 1 hour from Rishikesh centre. At the temple one has to climb about 300 steps. Not very difficult as they have made rest points at 100 and 200 steps. At 200 steps there is a small shop for water or cold drinks.
The temple is not so crowded and one can have good darshan. One can also ask the Temple Purohit for a small puja.
The place gives a majestic view of Rishikesh hills.

The temple is located on a hill from where we get stunning views of the sun set. It is an old temple. There are about 250 steps to reach the temple.

Get up early to drive to Kunjapuri Devi temple in time to catch the mesmerising sunrise. Well worth getting up early and braving the cold.

the kunjapuri temple was one of the many highlights during my stay in rishikesh. It has such a magical power being there in that holy temple with the view of the mountains and himalayas. I was there for the sunrise. This is something I would very much recommend you to do. It was propably the most beautiful sunrise I have ever seen in my life
