It’s lush green Himalayan beauty and the presence of holy Ganges compliments the pure and natural yogic lifestyle. River Ganges holds an important place amongst the Hindus and is regarded as Mother Ganga. Due to this, Rishikesh is a famous pilgrimage for Hindus. Moreover, practicing yoga by the banks of river Ganges is believed to be a very enlightening experience.
