Rishikesh

The Beatles made Rishikesh famous when they came here in the late ’60′s and it still serves as a haven for spiritual seekers from all different backgrounds. It styles itself as the Yoga Capital of the World and sits on the holy Ganges River. We met some of the most eccentric people of our trip here and participated in some very interesting rituals, prayer ceremonies and yoga classes. Staying in an ashram on the banks of the Ganges, we soaked it in before we couldn’t take it anymore.
