Parmarth Niketan is located on the banks of the Ganga in Rishikesh. The rooms are simple and clean and much better than I thought they would be given this is an Ashram. The room had a great view of the River. I practiced Hatha yoga at the Ashram twice a day and it they were well instructed classes. During the week they also held meditation classes in the evening that included anything from silent meditation to Kundalini chanting. The price also includes three simple vegetarian meals a day. The evening Aarti is really special and worth seeing on a daily basis. I did end up leaving a two days earlier than planned as it was really cold when I was there and I was heading down to the South to get some sun. The front office staff were quite rude during my stay, which was the only downside to a beautiful and peaceful time at Parmarth and Rishikesh. I'd recommend Parmarth as an easy introduction to an Ashram experience in India.
