Dehradun

Make one day trip from Rishikesh to Dehradun, or just stay in Dehradun for one night. In general, Dehradun is very dirty, noisy, and not too interesting city. However, something is nice to see there. And, it’s Mindrolling Buddhist monastery in Clement town. There is the largest stupa, peaceful land of monks, and beauty of Dehradun. Also, FRI = Forest Research Institute is worth seeing. The institute contains six museums with forest topics, and one of it is with the oldest tree. Beside these two main attractions, Dehradun offers to see Palka bazaar, Sikh gurdwara, and rush of the capital city of Uttarakhand. From Dehradun, we continued our hill stations trip to the next destination call Mussoorie.

Rishikesh Juice Tour

What we really liked about Rishikesh, it were options of vegan food, fresh juices, and produce. If for any reason you need to clean your body, there are many juice makers in India. Our favorite is fresh made sugarcane juice with a pinch of black salt. The black salt has interesting smell. So don’t be surprised by the smell, because it tastes amazing. Benefits of fresh juices are an inexpensive liquid food, high in the nutrition, detoxing, and refreshing. In the video, you can also see the hotel where we slept for only Rps 500/night. The place is clean with hot water and wifi.

Rishikesh Beatles Ashram

Did you know that mostly of The Beatles songs were made in Rishikesh? Boys from The Beatles found the peace in India so as we. For me as a lover of their music, we had to visit overpriced (Rps 600/person) Maharishi Ashram. I’m very happy for being there. But honestly, it’s pretty expensive entree fee for the scene of destroyed ashram. In couple hours, we explored spacious ashram area, views from the top of some buildings, and individual’s little houses of baba. Lately, rest on the beach, and relax in the company of the Sun, Ganga, sound of birds, honking bikes, and local kids-flower sellers (Rps 10/flower). The Beatles meditated, we meditated, and so you will do too in Rishikesh.

Rishikesh Beauty of Nature

Rishikesh is located in footprints of Himalayas. Beauty of mountains are enriching by waterfalls, temples, Ganga river, and spiritual vibe. Rent the bike for Rps 400 by Laxman Jhula (upper bridge) and make day trip to Kheragad Temple. Benefits of it, we saw country side of Rishikesh, get off of tourists, ride the scooter, touched the nature and had so much fun. Another day trip…WATERFALLS…around Laxman Jhula is several waterfalls..small or tall ones…ask local people for advice but don’t need a guide;) We found it. So, you will find it easily too. Nature in the surrounding of Rishikesh is wild with touch of Himalaya…Ganga in its beginning tides clearly from the mountains. Happiness of people and freely walking cows filled our hearts with peace.

Food In Rishikesh

Rishikesh is heaven for vegetarians. The city banned consumption of meat, eggs and alcohol. Therefore, we enjoyed life on a plate there. Mostly of the time, we ate on streets, which present the best way of having delicious spicy Indian food. Between our favorites belong slices of coconut, fresh made juices, potatoes with seasoning, herbs, and green chili peppers, chapati, rice, and so much more. From the market, we fed ourselves with papayas, grapes, bananas, chiku, and more green chili and garlic as additional for dishes. By the way, we love garlic and spicy food. Also, garlic and spicy hot food protect your body from diseases. Unfortunately, Rishikesh is very touristy. For this reason, “restaurants” in the city cook less spicy and less tasty food. However, for those of you who look for international food as pancakes, pizza, sandwich, or pasta…Rishikesh got it. In the video, we picked few our favorite places. In general, we had fun with monkey feeding, cow feeding,and Monika&Adam feeding. Veganism is fun, and specially in India. Did I mention that …
