Rishikesh is one of the most prominent tourist destinations in UttaraKhand (formerly known as Uttaranchal), India, which the pilgrims, nature lovers and the adventure seekers love to visit. Rishikesh is also known as the Tapo Bhumi and it’s the best place for Meditation and Yoga in the world.
At this place the Ganges leaves the mountains and prepares herself to begin a long journey through the plains. Rishikesh stands at an altitude of 1360 meters above sea level and along the river; the area is filled with thick green forests in the all-mountainous region. That makes Rishikesh, the most famous place for adventure sports/activities like trekking, river rafting, mountaineering, camping and rock climbing in India.
