What you'll do

Sunset Hiking in Rishikesh Experience starts the afternoon at 1 PM in the winter & around 2 PM in the summer season for those who travel from Rishikesh. The journey takes about 1 hr to reach Hindoa Khal a small town, traveling through dense forest and small villages. Upon arrival, we will do a 1-hour hike to the Kunjapuri Temple. The entire trek is a gradual ascent to the mountain top. One can also drive up to the temple if not trekking. We will arrive at Kunjapuri Temple in time to enjoy the beautiful Sunset, as well as the 180 degrees panoramic view of snow-covered Greater Himalayan Range, Rishikesh, amazing landscape and the vast Doon valley in the distance. After we will drive back to Rishikesh, making a stop in Narender Nagar city. There sits the world-famous Ananda Spa, which was converted from an ancient palace, where we will stop for some photos. You will arrive back in Rishikesh around 7 PM, where we will have lunch and after lunch finish the tour. Kunjapuri is one of the 13 important Goddesses of the Himalayan foothills, and Kunjapuri Temple is a historically acclaimed Hindu sanctuary built-in memory of the Goddess Parvati.

Naveen

I have been living in Rishikesh since 2008, it is my second home after Raithal village in the Himalaya where I was born and raised. Over the years I have got to know the best Rishikesh and it's surrounding areas have to offer. I love to meet new people, to share my knowledge and culture with them, and give them the best experience of Uttarakhand's nature and sightseeing. I am a certified Mountaineer guide from Nehru Institute of Mountaineering in Uttarkashi, a Sivananda as well as Iyengar certified Yoga Teacher, and have been organising sightseeing tours, yoga meditation retreats, and Himalayan treks for over 15 years in India. I have toured and trekked extensively throughout India, Nepal, Vietnam, Thailand, Myanmar, and Japan as both part of a group and group leader.
