Neergarh Waterfalls: A Visit To The Dynamic Falls

Rishikesh is a very nice place to relax. The Yoga town is indeed a spiritual hub for many religious followers especially Hindus. But to tell you there is one more beautiful place to visit in Rishikesh. This is Neergarh falls. Let’s take a look on the journey to this refreshing falls.

Neergarh Waterfalls: A Visit To The Dynamic Falls

The moment goes completely with the phrase ‘Go with the Flow’. The fresh clear water falling down from the high-stiff cliffs seems as if white milk is flowing from the top of hills. The water pool below the falls gives a large space to plunge and play. The pristine natural view of the location gets locked in the eyes and stills the heart. The experience is not less than a dream or it can be interpreted as living the dream.

As we were on our trip to the Yoga Capital Rishikesh, we just made our mind to explore the nearby places as well. One of the locals suggested visiting the nearby Neergarh WaterFalls which was just a few kilometres from Rishikesh. So, we decided to go visit the waterfalls the next day.

How To Reach Neer Waterfalls 

We set out for a journey in the morning after having a light breakfast. We looked for private transport to drop us to the location but didn’t get any. After waiting for a long while we luckily got a shared auto that was looking for passengers to Neergarh falls. The auto dropped us to the stop where we have to trek 3-4 km up to the hill where the falls are. For a fit person, it needs max 30 minutes to reach the main falls.

Entry Tickets to the Waterfalls 

There is a ticket counter in the downhill where you have to buy tickets to the waterfall. It will charge INR  30 per person for the Indian Nationals and INR 50 for foreign Nationals  As we were four people we paid for the tickets accordingly and set out for the short trek to visit the Neergarh waterfalls.

 Neergarh Waterfalls

The beautiful Neergarh Falls is divided into three segments. The first segment of the falls is a few steps away which is a small pool but not that attractive. However, there was still crowd so we just decided to move up and view the second segment.

As we stepped upper we got to see the wondrous views of the natural beauty. The rocks, high cliffs, the sound of water falling and the birds chirping all around, it just made the perfect spot where we could spend our time relaxing. After trekking for a while more we reached the most beautiful and amazing waterfalls, the main Neergarh falls. This second Neergarh fall was approx 25 feet high.

Best time to visit

The preferred time to visit the waterfalls is post-monsoon. You will get to enjoy the water pool. Also, summers are good to visit but the scarcity of water makes it unworthy.
