Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Rishikesh Yogis Yogshala, Laxman Jhula Road Prithvipal Sadan, Rishikesh 249192 India

Traditionally, pilgrimage to the four shrines of Uttarakhand starts with yatra to Yamunotri. Though one can commence journey to Yamunotri from either Dehradun or Rishikesh, the real atmosphere and pulse of pilgrimage can be felt at Rishikesh alone. For car owners and parties chartering full vehicles, the Dehradun and Mussoorie route is usually more interesting, but for pilgrims depending on public transport, there is no alternative to beginning the journey from Rishikesh. Most of the private transport companies operating to the sacred shrines are based at Rishikesh.
