Yoganagari

Rishikesh draws in visitors of all creeds with its wealth of ashrams and yoga and meditation teaching centers. The Beatles came here to stay at an ashram in the late 1960s, and the city's international reputation among those seeking a spiritual, or simply rejuvenating experience, has grown ever since. Head down to the river during your trip to Rishikesh to see the nightly fire ritual, ganga aarti, performed. The sacred Hindu city remains strictly vegetarian, with the consumption of alcohol deemed unlawful.

Where to stay in Rishikesh

In the downtown area, river houses remain the most popular accommodations, with a few guesthouses and hostels located farther back from the sacred waters of the Ganges. Most visitors choose to stay upriver, in areas filled with pleasant ashrams, hostels, and hotels perched near the water in clusters. Arrange your accommodations in advance to ensure rooms that suit your style, budget, and reasons for being in this spiritual capital.
