    Wonderful list Pankti. Just viewed this article on Twitter. I visited Rishikesh in January and it’s a must place visit for every one specially in Winter. Very few tourists were there in January month and because of that we enjoyed our small trip (Visited for some rituals) but missed many things. Thanks for sharing, will explore this place soon.
