About the place

Rishikesh Yoga Retreat is a boutique retreat ensconced amidst the foothills of the Great Himalayas in Tapovan, Rishikesh. It is a serene and peaceful locale away from the main highway. The sacred Ganges River pours luminous blue-green water from the Shivalik Hills on her journey to the plains. It is easy to see why Rishikesh (Lord Vishnu) was named “Lord of the Senses” and why Uttarakhand, the state in which it lies, is known as Dev Bhumi – “Land of the Gods”. Each room at Rishikesh Yoga Retreat offers breathtaking views of the valley and Himalayan Hill accompanied with a private and quiet balcony area to relax, sip a cup of tea, or just read a book to the sound of the River Ganges and the wind kissing the hills.

We offer a diverse menu, healthy and delicious cuisine incorporating traditional and contemporary, using primarily locally sourced organic vegetables and ingredients. Herbal teas, Juices, Teas are obtainable at all time.

Evening Ganga Aarti: Just as the sun’s rising is manifest by prayers. Each evening as the sun’s last rays reflect off the endless waters of mother Ganga, we congregate for the Ganga Aarti. This divine light ritual is filled with devotional prayers, songs, rituals and a palpable sense of the holiness of mother Ganga. The Aarti, an ornate oil lamp, lined with dozens of inferno burning in pure ghee - is offered to god. We give gratitude for the blessings bestowed upon us that day, as well as representatively offering light back to Ganga Aarti is a time when we break free from the normal strain & stresses of every - day life, & gather together in joy, peace and reverence. For those looking formore physical activities, kayaking, White Water River Rafting, Rappelling, Climbing and Cliff jumping are available upon request.
