Rishikesh, India

Rishikesh is a tehsil in Dehradun District, within Uttarakhand State in India. Governed by Rishikesh Municipality, Rishikesh is located at the base of the Himalayas, beside the Ganges River, to the north of Haridwar, a city found in the southeastern region of Dehradun. The city is considered a gateway into the Garhwal Himalayas in Northern India, and it is one of the most populated cities in Uttarakhand.
Home to a strong religious background, Rishikesh has been considered as a pilgrimage spot for a long time now, as it is perceived to be the holiest place by the Hindus. Rishikesh has hosted many Hindu saints and sages over the past years, making the area a national heritage city, albeit being free of alcohol and non-vegetarian food because of the holiness associated with it.
Meditation, yoga, sacred bathing, and spiritual cleansing are common practices in the Triveni Ghat area, where nightly fire rituals are performed with oil lamps being floated downstream on the river. Visitors like to partake of the natural scenic views from atop Lakshman Jhula and Ram Jhula, the only bridges that serve pedestrians only in Rishikesh.
Outdoor activities in Rishikesh include a visit to the stunning mightiness of the giant Trayambakeshwar Temple, trekking in the woods, hiking in the mountains, as well as kayaking and other water activities.
