Where I stayed
I met up again with my Dutch friend Aron and he guided me to the OM Hotel for 150 Rupees a night, a bargain. The whole city breaths spiritually and every 20 meters you can find a Yoga, Massage, Reiki or Meditation place to go to. Also the people here are as we say in Dutch ‘zweverig’ and many come here for numerous weeks to practice Yoga or find their inner selves. I am not one of them but was still curious about Yoga and those other things so I joined some Yoga classes.
I know I am not the most agile person but in the Yoga classes it became very evident
In Rishikesh was also the possibility for rafting so couldn’t resist that as well. It was more thrilling than I expected and I enjoyed the few hours although the water of the Ganges was too cold for me to jump in.
- OM Hotel is recommended but whatever you choose make sure you stay close to the Lakshman Jhula bridge where all the action is.
