What you'll do

We will start the experience by visiting various places like Mansa Devi temple, Sapt Rishi temple, Daksha Mahadev temple & Ashram, etc. After we will have & enjoying the local foods in Haridwar Market. After lunch will continue to visit ashrams and temples located in Haridwar. To complete the experience, in the evening during sunset we will participate in the Maha Aarti (pooja ceremony) which takes place at Har Ki Pauri, the most famous ghat on the banks of the Ganges. Haridwar is the gateway to the four pilgrimages in the Uttarakhand Himalayan region and is located on the foothills of Shivaliks. It is on the banks of River Ganges. The River Ganges leaves the mountains and enters the plains with Haridwar being the first major town on the plains. Though the Ganges does not lose its rapids completely nevertheless it becomes very quite and calm here. The city acquires a unique charm in the evening when the ghats become breathtakingly beautiful with thousands of Diyas and Marigold floating in the waters of Ganga River.
Other things to note
Since we will be visiting many temples and ashrams, please come prepared to do some light walking throughout the day.

All travellers especially female solo travelers wanting to explore the most famous temples of Haridwar do book this experience. Naveen bro is an amazing companion who understands you well and adjust accordingly. I couldn't even climb nearly 2km walk uphill to chandiDevi temple (the cable cart wasnt functioning) I took too many pauses but him being a professional mountaineer waited all along for me every time I stopped🙈✌️thank you for concerns✌️ and also if you have interests in yoga then I bet he would be the perfect companion to travel with given his experience in that field. nevertheless you can book this experience and start either from RISHIKESH or HARIDWAR

If you are new to India, this experience will make you fall in love with India. If you are already in love with India, your love will get much deeper. Naveen’s experience was extra ordinary gift in my life. I learn so much from him not only about India but also about life lessons. Whatever you expect, he will go beyond. His passion, love, humor, caring, knowledge will touch your soul like beautiful river Ganges. If his calendar is open, no need to hesitate. Go book! I want to participate every single trip with Naveen if I can! Thank you Naveen, meeting you in India was a real gift for me. My words are so limited to express my thankful feeling but I will always remember your loving heart!

I would recommend Naveen to anybody who is interested to see and understand real, authentic India, including those who come to Rishikesh in particular to study yoga and Vedanta. Naveen is experienced, confident, educated and truly exceptional guide. He is thoughtful, respectful with a genuine care for his guests. I would highly recommend Naveen to all but especially to single travellers, women in particular, who might have difficulties to navigate cities. I would not be able to do any of what I wanted to do on my own. I also feel that not only I received fantastic value and a royal treatment but that the uniqueness of experiences provided for me on this trip created incredible memories I will cherish for ever.
