Rishikesh is located in the foothills of the Himalayas along the pious Ganga River in Uttarakhand. It holds deep cultural and spiritual significance and is especially popular with yoga enthusiasts. The International Yoga Festival is held every year in March. There’s a lot to be done here for the adventurous lot as well. Hiking and rafting is something not to miss. There are many small villages and waterfalls around to explore.
The Jolly Grant airport in Dehradun is the closest airport, 20 km from Rishikesh. You can also take a train to Haridwar and then take a cab or bus to Rishikesh. Volvo buses are also available to Rishikesh from Delhi and other major cities.
This boutique home is located in the serene surroundings of a quiet Himalayan village on a hilltop, at a 20 km off-road drive from Rishikesh. Away from the chaos of the main town, the home has sprawling gardens and a view of both the Ganges and the snow-peaked Himalayas. Take a walk through the village or on hidden trails to nearby forests of oak, cedar and rhododendron; bask on a rock by the waterfall, or lounge in the plush green lawns dunked in birdsongs. Perfect place to detach yourself, relax and appreciate the slow life. Play your favorite games in the empty spaces, fly your kites high in the sky, sit on the hammocks or paint to your imagination in the sprawling lawns.
There are five tastefully done luxurious rooms. The cottages are made of local materials and worked on by skilled craftsmen from a local Village. The view is simply amazing, especially when the clouds are rising from the valley below. Complete blend of comfort and adventure. You can book individual rooms or the entire place. There is a common living room with TV, the dining room, lounge and the sprawling lawns.
