    Triveni Ghat is in the Centre of Rishikesh and Roaming around here in the morning and evening is soul searching as well as Aarti in the evening is so much pure n Divine simply worth Going to Triveni Ghat while in Rishikesh

    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.

    Booked a taxi from Ram jhula to neer garh waterfall and back for 1000/- There is 30/- charge per person for entering waterfall area. It's easy to climb on first level. Water is clear and bridge is beautiful. There are eating places with Maggi, cold drinks and many chairs to sit around..

    This is the location of massive statues of Lord Vishnu and Hanuman and a perfect place to take some pictures. Do go into the ashram as well for a meditative walk in their gardens and take some pictures.

    We were suggested this place bya friend who visited in 2020. This place is also known as Baba Kalikamliwala Ashram. It is on the east river bank of Ganga river.
    believe me, we were flabbergasted with the place. We booked a fully furnished air conditioned one bedroom kitchen apartment after a lots of efforts. It has to be booked ONLINE ONLY and the decision makers are based out of Calcutta.
    But, it was worth all the efforts.
    You have to go to the canteen for your breakfast,lunch and dinner. Food is very economical.
    The whole place is full of life.
    Our flat no.316 was very close to River Ganga. hardly 100 mts.We attended Ganga aarti for all the seven days we stayed there.
    IF YOU JUST WANT TO REST IN CLEANEST ENVIORNMENT, DO YOG EVERYDAY, AND HAVE A TIME OF YOUR LIFE, YOU MUST VIVIT THIS PLACE.
    By the way, for young people who want to roam around to visit other attractions like Laxman Zula etc. 2 wheelers are available on rent. Rs 500 per day !!!!

    I have just returned from an 8 day Refreshing Waterfall Hiking Yoga retreat at the Veda Yogashala in Laxman Jhula, Rishikesh, and it has been an amazing experience! The yoga teaching, the wholesome food, the daily outings, and mostly the warmth and care of the Veda Yogashala team has been exceptional!

    The two young teachers, Jay and Deepak, are the best yoga teachers that I have ever been taught by. Their knowledge, skill, expertise, patience and maturity is beyond anything I have experienced and I learned so much in the short period that I attended the Veda Yogashala.

    With their guidance, I could stretch to levels that I had not imagined before, and became more confident in my practice. They have an extremely positive attitude, but at the same time, they can discern the individual’s limitations, and help to overcome them. Their expertise becomes apparent in the very first lesson, and they are always very polite and respectful. Thank-you both for the valuable teaching!

    Other activities included visiting iconic places, waterfall hiking and river rafting. The lovely Jyothi patiently and skilfully took us around, guiding us to the key places. One of must-visit places is the Beatles Ashram, which shows the dedication of the earlier yogis and their disciples.

    During the retreat we had tasty and wholesome food cooked by Kushal, who ensured we had variety for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    I will certainly continue my practice with online sessions. Now I don’t want to learn with anybody else and I will make sure that I visit the Veda Yogashala every year.

    I would urge anyone who wants to experience skilful and expert training to visit the Veda Yogashala in Laxman Jhula, Rishikesh.

    This place was, is and always remain as the main attraction of Rishikesh. A must visit site for every tourists or pilgrimage. Getting a room here is however very difficult, rooms are mostly free. We were anyway not interested to stay in free rooms. The khadi store outside Gita Bhavan was not that attractive.

    We enjoyed our visit to this ashram. The architecture is immersed in the jungle and it’s is very interesting. Vero cool place to take pictures. Read a bit before going since there’s not much info on site. Just a couple of signs.

    We found it a bit expensive for foreigners compared to the local’s rate.

    With the closure of Laxman Jhula this place has lost its popularity. We could not a get a view from the Jhula.
