Things to Do in Rishikesh

  • Kunjapuri Devi Temple

    "Kunjapuri Devi Temple is one of the most revered Hindu shrines, located around 15 km away from Rishikesh. The temple is situated on its namesake peak at an elevation of 1676 m above sea level. This shrine is one of the three Siddha Peeths, the other two being Surkanda Devi and Chandrabadani. There is an interesting legend associated with this temple. It was here that the upper-half of Goddess Sati's body fell when Her husband - Lord Shiva was carrying it to Mount Kailash.

    Countless devotees throng this temple during Navratras (April and October) and Dusshera, two of the most important Hindu festivals. Perched atop a hillock, this temple gives a breathtaking view of the mighty Himalayas and the holy towns of Haridwar and Rishikesh."

  • Camping and Rafting

    "Rishikesh is a spiritual destination that is gradually gaining immense popularity for a different form of tourism. Adventure tourism – preferred by thrill seekers worldwide – is the reason behind the present international fame of this town. White water rafting and riverside camping are the activities that delight adventure enthusiasts and bring them to this scenic valley. Rafting and camping in Rishikesh attract several tourists throughout the year, who come here to spend a holiday filled with adventure. Several tour operators and local companies offer river rafting and camping options in the region.

    Rafting is the highlight of adventure tourism in Rishikesh and is done alongside the watercourse of the Ganga River in Shivpuri, Brahmpuri, Marine Drive and Kodiyala. Divided into different rapids and grades, the challenging activity promises an enthralling and thrilling experience for everyone. The rafting season in Rishikesh continues from March to May and later, from September to November. Before tourists conduct this activity, proper training is provided to them under expert supervision.

    Another activity that draws tourists towards the town is camping, which is broadly classified as beach camping, luxurious camping and jungle camping. There are various campsites along the shoreline of the Ganga River in Rishikesh. The best thing about this leisure activity is that there is no specific season for it.
