The sacred River Ganges in the light of the moon, a tranquil calm settled over busy city streets, the glow of lamps within the temples... Explore a different side of Rishikesh on this evening walking tour of the city.
As the sun begins to set, so you'll begin your walking tour of Rishikesh at nightfall, meeting at the Parmarth Niketan Ashram, the city's largest ashram with more than one thousand rooms. Here students live alongside their spiritual teachers to learn Hindu religion and culture and to practice yoga and meditation.
Continue strolling along the banks of the Ganges, passing the Gita Bhawan Temple and the Swarg Ashram. The beautifully illuminated houses and temples as well as the city's atmosphere of peace and spirituality make this walking tour an unforgettable mystical experience.
You'll then head towards the ancient Maharani Sri Vidyawati Kuor temple, where you'll stop at a viewpoint to enjoy a stunning panoramic view over Rishikesh.
The final stop on your evening walking tour will be the hanging bridge of Lakshman Jhula, the favourite meeting point of many locals and one of the city's most iconic landmarks.
