It takes about 60-75 minutes to arrive, depending on whether you make several stops to take pictures of the Ganges along the way. You can go during sunrise or sunset, but we went during the middle of the day and we really enjoyed it! We...More

Worth getting up at dawn to see the sunrise. A lovely experience for everyone; a spiritual experience if you are so inclined. The views alone make it worth the trip.

Kunjapuri mata mandir is at a 90 mins drive from Rishikesh on the hills. Suggest one should take blessing from goddess. One would get a great view of the Himalayan ranges.

An early morning drive up to meditate as the sun rose over the Himalayas. I recommend the trip and taking time to savor the views and the peace here. A hike down to Neer Waterfall is also highly recommended. A beautiful day.

It is considered as one of the shakti-peeths and hence gets in the list of must visits. The approach road was under construction and hence was time consuming. Once you reach there, you have to climb 150-200 stairs so can be little difficult for elderly...More
