My Most Unforgettable trip to Rishikesh

Rishikesh   is a beautiful small town situated in the state of Uttarakhand in India. It is situated in the foothills of Himalayas and on the banks of River Ganges . It is often referred to as Yoga Capital of the World and is one of the most favored tourist destinations worldwide. It is this place where the mighty and auspicious River Ganges descend from the Himalayas to the planes. This place is also renowned for white water rafting and a large number of sacred and beautiful Hindu temples. River rafting in Rishikesh River Ganga  or often called as  River Ganges  originates from the  Himalayas  in state of  Uttarakhand  in  India  (it's a  glacier fed river ). There are three main tributaries of river Ganga namely  Bhagirathi, Alaknanda and Mandakani . At  Rudraprayag , river  Mandakini  joins river  Alaknanda ; and finally in  Devprayag , where the  Bhagirathi  joins the  Alaknanda  to form the   River Ganges, which  is regarded as the most holiest river in India.
