A quiet holy place to visit near Rishikesh.
By the banks of Ganges, its a great experience to trek through the rocks and touch the cold water.

One of the peaceful place to meditate and enjoy the calmness. We took a rented bike and travelled from Rishikesh to Vashisht Gufa. We have 2 caves one is Vashisht Gufa and the other one name Arundati Gufa on the name of his wife.

I thouroughly enjoyed this place along with my cousin. we reached here at 1.30 PM and the temple was closed. It remains closed from 1 pm to 3 pm. One of the occupant offered us food, and we accepted the offer, since we were super hungry. Not only food, the Guruji also gave us Rs.10 Dakshina, which was a surprise. I have kept the note with me as a souvenir.
The area is very peaceful in the bank of the river Ganga. We could not spend much time as the weather was very hot. We want to return here again and spend some more time in the lap of nature.

We spent good 2 hours here. What a place! The Gufa is strictly for people who want to meditate, not for photography. For people who meditate, it's heaven and you'll realise it in Arundhati cave as well as Vashishta Gufa.

As the name suggest its a sage Gufa, so expect the lifestyle of a tapasvi Saptrishi sage who is in deep meditation. Its one of the most calming and positive vibes place in Rishikesh. If you are looking for a normal temple with lot of people and shops around, you avoid this place, however if you are looking for calming place where you can silently meditate, this place is for you. Its literally in a mountain, with only the diya light in the cave. If you enter from the bright sun in first instance you will find it dark, let your eyes adjust to the darkness and you will find a shivlinga and many people meditating here. The vibrations are very good.

You will need to take a taxi or private vehicle to this place, than climb down to the entrance of gufa next to ganga river.
