A Trip to Rishikesh – One which will stay for long time in my list of travels!
Hello everyone, I am here on this Tuesday to share my experience that I have had over the last weekend in my trip to Rishikesh. Rishikesh is a beautiful place located on the foothills of Himalayas and that’s key here. This place of Rishikesh as most of you know is known for the Spirituality through the means of Yoga and Meditation. There are many centres here which have the power of spirituality within and will make you feel the vibes of spirituality as soon as you enter the centres. In fact, the place ‘Rishikesh’ itself gives you different vibes, which are thoughtful and deep. I might not be able to explain it in the right way but Rishikesh or for that matter any holy place is an experience to live for. It is for sure a place to visit and get the vibes that are much needed for the individual growth.
Let me now tell my observations from the trip:
I would want talk about the approach of two sets of people who travel or tour to Rishikesh. One is we Indians and the others are the foreigners. Rishikesh the place which is located besides the Ganga has two things to derive, one is to mediate at the banks and acquire the power and the other is to raft in the river to feel the enjoyment. Nothing is good or bad. Both are required for people at own levels. I have to make this point here and that is I have seen most of the Indians coming to Rishikesh for fun and most of the foreigners coming to this trip for Spiritual learning. It’s purely the individual’s decision on what he wants to do. But I just want to draw a point that, Foreigners aren’t just what we see them as, pioneers in technology, roads, infrastructure which is all physical and tangible. They have also gone far ahead in their inner engineering and spiritual growth. I may be wrong but this is what I have experienced in my two holy places and one spiritual place visits of Pondicherry, Varanasi and Rishikesh in last one year.
That’s about the trip, my experience wasn’t a fantastic one to be honest but it was good and everything doesn’t happen as you wish. So, this was again a trip that has increased my knowledge, especially on how things are in the states like Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh. I have had valuable insights on People, Lifestyle, Roads and much more. I have attached the pictures of the places that I have visited with this post. You can read and know about the place.
To end it, every trip is important and this was also an important trip for me in my discovery of India. It’s nice that you get to see places and put them fixed in your mind for life time. A trip that has given me clarity and thus decisions will be made!
