Rishikesh is more than a paradise frequented by iconic pop stars and screen legends searching for inner peace, it is a community of acceptance and union, and the perfect holiday destination for aspiring yogis or those who just need space from the frazzling lifestyle most of us lead to some degree.

Tours that include Rishikesh
Very rarely do we experience a location or holiday spot that reaches into the depth of our roiling souls and calms a chaotic work-five-days psyche; everything about the modern world is up to the minute, on the button, a 24/7 hyper existence that exacerbates horrible sleeping patterns and the rise of the tortured insomniac.
Treating yourself needn’t be another week where you laze around in a robe, bored by a resort pool and wondering if you’re having fun yet; make a choice for your inner wellbeing and go on an internal adventure.
- The Kunjapuri Devi Temple
Pack a bag, water your throat and lace up your best walking shoes, as the Kunjapuri Devi Temple is a sanctuary for those searching for inspiration and a physical adventure. Perched on sky touching hill top, travellers are challenged to scale 1000 steps to the top, through lush forest and past trickling waterfalls; if you want an idea of the difficulty, take to your office building, use the stair well and start climbing, until you reach a 1000 count. Tiring? Yes. Worth it? At Kunjapuri Devi Temple, definitely.
The views are staggering, as the landscape of Rishikesh stretches out before you, winding rivers cutting through the marvellous city below; behind you, the Himalayas loom, the sharpened peaks towering above the world, a mystical gateway to the heavens. Rishikesh is home to many sights and experiences like this, inspiring a sense of calm curiosity; don’t be surprised if the urge to meditate overcomes you, as this is truly a hotspot that moves at its own pace.
