Rishikesh is not only about religious ashrams and the sacred Ganga but a home for adventurous spirits as well. Here one can find a lot of high adrenaline sports activities going on throughout the year.
One such is paragliding, which is best done in the Kunjapuri region. Kunjapuri resides amidst the Shivalik ranges and overlooks the enthralling Gangotri, Banderpunch, Chaukhamba and Swarga Rohini peaks. This makes paragliding here a wonderful treat to the eyes, especially at the time of sunset, when the peaks glisten in hues of yellow and orange.
Situated at the foot of Himalaya Mountains, Rishikesh makes a perfect base for trekking and hiking tours. Uttarakhand is adorned with abundant natural beauty, emerald rivers, green-cloaked hills, snow-capped peaks and lush green forests.

It is the home gorgeous glaciers, majestic Himalayan Mountains, breath-taking high altitude lakes, and surreal alpine meadows. With some easy and moderate routes, as well as more challenging trails, Uttarakhand has an option for every mountain adventure seeker.
