Places to Visit in Rishikesh
Situated in Uttarakhand, Rishikesh is a popular hill station and a pilgrimage destination. The city is located in the foothills of the Himalayas along the banks of River Ganga, and is widely famous for yoga and meditation practices. Lined with temples and ashrams, there are some very beautiful places to visit in Rishikesh.
Perhaps one of the best places to visit in Rishikesh is Triveni Ghat. Every evening, pilgrims from all around the country flock together to witness the Ganga Aarti ceremony here, which is a ceremonial tribute to the holy river. For four hours, the ceremony goes on and is accompanied with a song, dance, worship, ceremonial chanting, and a cleansing dip in the river. There is no doubt that it is one of the most famous places in Rishikesh. Mostly all tourist places in Rishikesh are ceremonial or holy places, and are full of color and noise.
Other tourist places in Rishikesh include the Neelkanth Mahadev Temple, which is a Shiva Temple, situated roughly two and a half kilometers from Laxman Jhula. A narrow road leads through dense forests to this Rishikesh tourist place, where the entire location is so picturesque that you wouldn’t want to blink your eyes at all. Travelers looking for waterfall in Rishikesh should visit the Neer Garh Waterfall which is just 11 kilometers away from the city centre. One can enjoy a bath at the base of the fall under the freely falling water.
A few other places to visit in Rishikesh in one day include the famous Tera Manzil Temple. This temple, located near Laxman Jhula is one of the most famous places in Rishikesh.

Pratik's 7 days trip to RishikeshHotels that were provided were near to sight seeing points. For Joshimath hotel Grand Annex, phone did not work,every time we needed something we need to tell at the reception. Rishikesh- Trihari hotel,there was sound from washroom door which was asked to fix but was not fixed.Sachin international in haridwar, ambience was not good, they did not have butter. Driver was good but at instances we found that where car could have been taken he asked us to travel by local transport. Towards the end of the trip, he has kept his socks in the car drawer which were smelling very bad.

Praveen's 5 days trip to RishikeshOverall good experience travelling with travel triangle .
Ravi's 4 days trip to RishikeshMy adventure trip to Rishikesh, Mussoorie & Dhanaulti is superb. Me and wife enjoyed the entire trip, mesmerizing natural sight seeing locations, snowfall, awesome activities like river rafting, bungee jumping, trekking, local shopping, water falls, camping.....etc., I would appreciate the efforts of the travel triangle and Sunrise Holidays in planning and coordinating the entire trip. Assigned driver, hotels pick up's and drop's etc., are well planned and travel agent responses are really cool. However I would like to make a note, if you are planning to Dhanaulti etc., please plan to carrying appropriate winter wear because the temperature is around -5 degrees during our stay.
Akash's 5 days trip to RishikeshThere was a misunderstanding between the cab driver and the agent. It was a huge problem in what was otherwise an exciting trip.
