Its true that everyone doesn’t like calmness ,some also like to stay in crowd and enjoy moments . This mesmerising  place is for them . The Ram jhula is a  bridge across the holy river. Its narrow and beautiful for pedestrian crossing from the west to eastern ghat . The view of the bridge is unexpectedly beautiful at night . I personally suggest you  to visit it at night . The place has its own charm . There is a great experience when the wind crosses and  bridge moves and you can feel the unexpected adventures feeling .

The largest  and highly known  ghat in rishikesh . It gives an awesome riverfront site for spiritual activities. Mostly the ghat is overcrowded with devotee to take ritual baths to get cleansed from their sins .Its a very refreshing place . The aarti in Triveni ghat is beautiful to watch and  soothling, infact I am not a spiritual person but chanting from all pandits made me love ganga river as a result I started believing in spiritual world and also there is a fabolous walk away made ,people go for walks and enjoy the nature .

What a calm place it is ,the sivananda ashram . This famous ashram was founded by Swami sivananda in rishikesh . There are very rare ashrams which are authentic and do not sell yoga in Rishikesh and it’s one of them . This place is generally for those people who are intrested in spiritual life and meditation . Its a very good place for meditation and self interrogation. There is also a 2 month yoga Vedanta course which can change your life .I personally recommend you to visit here if you want to find the true meaning of life.

RIVER RAFTING

What an adventure ,The best experience I could ever had in Rishikesh is because of river rafting .The thrill that river rafting give us is unexpectedly awesome . There’s alot of security ,rules so that no-one can get hurt and enjoy a lot .theres also a system of eating and drinking there . If you are an adventures person , I personally recommend you to do river rafting and cliff jump, it will give you a great adventure . In the same way the people who take you to the river rafting and other adventurous places are well trained and experienced .

In rainy season the ferocious Ganges flows around the Lord Shiva statue. Its an best destination for photoholic people ,people love taking pictures of meditating lord shiva over river Ganges. It is a very devotional place as a result now I am fully devoted to this place .
