If you are planning to do some sightseeing, attend yoga classes, and explore the local markets, you may need at least 2-3 days in Rishikesh. During this time, you can visit popular attractions such as the Triveni Ghat, Laxman Jhula, Ram Jhula, and Neer Garh Waterfall, and take a dip in the holy Ganges River. You can also attend an evening Ganga Aarti ceremony, a spiritual ritual that takes place on the banks of the river every day.


If you are interested in adventure activities such as river rafting, bungee jumping, or trekking, you may need an additional 1-2 days. Rishikesh is a hub for adventure tourism, and there are many operators that offer these activities. You can also take a day trip to nearby places like Shivpuri and Kaudiyala for more adventure options.

Yoga Retreat?

If you are planning to attend a yoga retreat or a meditation course, you may need a minimum of 5-7 days in Rishikesh. Rishikesh is known as the Yoga Capital of the World, and there are many ashrams and yoga centers that offer courses and retreats.


Overall, I would recommend spending at least 2-3 days in Rishikesh to get a taste of the local culture, spirituality, and adventure activities. However, if you have more time, you can explore the city at a more relaxed pace and indulge in everything that Rishikesh has to offer.
