Rishikesh tour and travels

Rishikesh– Yoga capital of the India

Traveling to Rishikesh is always a delightful experience. If India is the land of seekers; Rishikesh is the Yoga capital of the world. It’s the true backpacker heart of India; away from the hustle and bustle of the cities, its tranquility and generosity leave most who visit the Himalayan city staying far longer than they expected they felt like they are in a whole new country. 

Things to try and do in Rishikesh – The first thing comes in my mind is RIVER RAFTING and BANJI JUMPING.
