Drive down The Ganges, Rishikesh India

A Drive happens to be Long when its besides the third largest river in the world The Holy Ganges. We got a little carried away with the long drive thing and drove for around 700kms over the weekend.

We Started of from New Delhi early morning with our high Spirits and boot full of Mr. Millers. It was just two of us and as usual we were talking to each other a lot and somehow lost the way and ended up reaching Dehradun instead of Haridwar. So From the Longest Route possible we reached Haridwar and checked into the beautiful Radisson Blu, which is high on my recommendation for its comfyness and hospitality.

Next Morning we started again and drove from Haridwar to Rishikesh to Neelkanth and Shivpuri. The Drive is really beautiful along side the Holy River Ganges and so much natural beauty to soak In.

I compiled few quick activities you can do in this weekend travel destination:

πŸ™‚ River Rafting has to be first if you are an adventurous soul.

πŸ™‚ Camping by the river which includes bonfire, volleyballs, music and dancing. Rishikesh offers a number of camps ranging from luxurious to really affordable ones.

πŸ™‚ Technology Detox, There are a lot of Wellness Spa resorts in the valley for yourΒ Brain Restorations. Because all the Hustle Bustle of Metros are turning our brains into a piece of Crap.

πŸ™‚ Swimming in the Ice Cold Waters of the Holy River is not only refreshing but also as per Hindu Mythology, A mere dip in these waters can reset your Sin Counter to zero.

πŸ™‚ Dolphin Watching over the sunset, Not many People know that Ganga is one of the oldest rivers to habitat Dolphins but sadly due to pollution they become Blind. But still you can see them,feed them from the bridges.

πŸ™‚ Rishikesh and Haridwar are Dry States, So If you are planning to get your bags full of Beer. You might get charged for them by the state Police, Speaking from a Personal experience πŸ™‚
