What strikes your mind as you heard a trip to Rishikesh? Rafting, visiting Ghats and attending Ganga aarti, right! But believe me it is much more to explore beyond rafting and visiting Ghats. Rishikesh, located on the banks of river Ganga in Uttarakhand is the birthplace of yoga. The whole town is a perfect place to relax and unwind and pamper yourself in sacred waters of river Ganga.
Rishikesh is a spiritual town blessed with tranquility. The capital of Yoga, also offers a variety of adventures for adventure lovers. One can do water rafting in white waters of river Ganga, river rafting in the waters of river Ganga is very popular.
You can go for trekking, bungee jumping, kayaking, cliff jumping, rock climbing, mountain biking and many more. A perfect place for holy visitors seeking spiritual abode, for visitors who wants to learn yoga, for adventure lovers.
Let’s explore other side of this beautiful place – camping. Riverside camping at Rishikesh is a lifetime experience in itself. Far from the hustle and bustle of the city, surrounded by amazing natural mountains is what you will explore in camping.
I went to camping with my family and stayed in a wonderful property – Royale Rainbow Resort. The resort is located on the Neelkanth Road in Rishikesh.
A lush green lawn with delicious food, adjacent to river Ganga, surrounded by mountains and styled with beautiful cottages. The campsite has very nice cottages for stay that will make your stay memorable. All cottages have attached bathrooms and all basic amenities are provided for comfortable stay.
The resort has ample space for parking. The resort offers beautiful views of jungle and mountains. Sitting next to river in the middle of the forest and listening to chirping of birds’ while enjoying wide mountain view in the background just soothes the soul.
We spent whole time soaking up in the river Ganga with my family. Enjoyed every bit of it dipping in muddle of water admist jungle with beautiful views in the backdrop.
Apart from enjoying river Ganga, we head to Patna waterfall which is around 4.3 kms from the campsite. It is a short trek, but the view on the top is breathtaking.
A short journey through small water streams, wild flowers, green trees, unique insects and other spectacular sights is full of adventure. The trek is very picturesque. It was a lovely trekking experience with my daughter.
Spent evening again dipping in the crystal clear waters of river and watching sunset. Spent a beautiful night with shining stars in the clear sky while enjoying rippling sound of the river, and different sounds of birds. The arrangement of outdoor sitting in spacious garden in the evening for evening tea and snacks and dinner is awesome. We had a great time relaxing, enjoying in the lap of nature.
Witness awesome sunrise next day in the morning while having a hot cup of tea. After that enjoyed scrumptious breakfast. Mostly camps do not have good variety and good taste in the food. We were expecting food to be ok types. But, this resort has broken my perception for the same. The food was totally outstanding.
It was a wonderful experience staying at the Royale Rainbow Resort. Delicious food, neat and clean rooms, good staff service makes it an ideal camping site. If you are looking for a beautiful yet tranquil place to stay in the jungle, this is the perfect place to be.
