Mussoorie – Hill Station

Mussoorie is located 35km from Dehradun. It’s called “queen of Hill station”. It’s nice mountain getaway from crowded cities. We spent in Mussoorie more than we should. Why? Adam get sick, and so we extended to four nights. Are you asking how we cure the sickness? Because Adam had diarrhea, he lost water. So first, lie to the bed. Then lemon ginger tea…sleep…water&water…rice and vegetable with lots of garlic. The garlic is natural antibiotics. Two days of rest. Because it’s a small city, stay there just for one or two nights. Definitely visit cafe Honey Hut if you like coffee:) They got delicious snacks as well as wifi. Great place to warm up in cold months, and to work on the itinerary of the trip. Around Mussoorie are beautiful mountains. What you can do it’s enjoying the sunset at the top of Gun hill. Where to sleep? Hotel Brodway is recommended by the Lonely Planet, and we can confirm it. It’s clean, for reasonable prices, and very nice stuff. For sure, we can say that …

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.
