    Try to visit chilla range one of the longest range. It was awesome place to visit for nature lovers. Jipsy is available but it will cost approx 2.5k for one or 6 people. So try to visit with your friends and family that would be economical.

    Good park or forest surrounded by people, tourist place for government to earn money. Elephants are the most here followed by dears, jungle safari is also available for the tourist,clean roads, lovely sight seeing but beware of animals and do not go near to the water.

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.
