I plan to visit Rishikesh during Easter this year - approx. 23-29th March. I'm looking for up to date advice on which hotels to stay at, where to eat and what to see and do. Yoga stuff and meditation are on the to do list as well as maybe hiking in the Himalayas a day or two. The hotel should be clean and with WiFi/LAN.
All tips and information are appreciated!
I researched hotels in Rishikesh a few years ago- they were sadly in very bad state.
We chose to stay in Haridwar, which is only 20kms away from Rishikesh.
Suggest that you look at hotels in Haridwar. I have made a review on my Hardiwar page regarding the hotel we stayed in. The link is on my PROFILE PAGE.
Forgot to mention that there are buses and taxis that run between Haridwar and Rishikesh frequently.
I think tripadvisor could be a great place to find some good hotels based on reviews and feedbacks,
If you are looking a neat and clean place to stay, there is a place "Muni Ki Reti" just 1 KM from Laxman Jhula. Bhandari Swiss Cottage, High Bank Peasants Cottage, Hill Top Swiss Cottage are some places where u can stay @ INR700 to INR1500 per day. Some of the pics of the area are here for u. Dont expect "stars" facilities there.
