Rishikesh is known as the Yoga capital of India is a very popular tourist spot .

Following are the things you can do in Rishikesh.

1)Camping by the Ganges

Listening to water flow through the rocks ,waking up to the chirping of peacocks,breathing the fresh air swaying . Surrounded by forests you cant miss camping in Rishikesh .

I would say avoid staying in Hotels but camp at a recognized place .

Safe for both guys and girls .

3)River Rafting in Rishikesh

There are a lot of third party agencies which offer river rafting in Rishikesh .It is one of the best in India .Rafting starts from Shivpuri and ends in the city of Rishikesh .The rafting experience is emaculate and lasts for 1 hours with 16kms of raft quenching .
