Well, we didn’t do any yoga in Rishikesh, however we did relax our minds and body and enjoyed the city to some degree. We stayed outside of town at the Swiss Cottage area of town and liked our 180 degree views of the valley below. It was hot and dry and there were fires in the hills surrounding the town. The Ganges (Ganga) river was amazingly refreshing in the 100 degree F temps. We rented a motorbike and toured the countryside and swam in the river. The other side of the river from the main city was full of temples, and shops selling everything you might want. We didn’t go to an Ashram, however saw many. Yoga in Rishikesh just isn’t our thing, and the restrictions are too intense for our liking. The town is dry and chicken free, however you can get both at the Swiss Cottages in the hills outside the city.
