Tour Plan

Day 1 - Delhi-Haridwar ( 225 Kms / approx. 5 to 6 hours)

Upon arrival in Delhi head Straight to Haridwar

Arrive Haridwar and check into your pre-booked hotel.

Visit Har-Ki-Pauri, the sacred ghat was constructed by King Vikramaditya in the memory of his brother Bhartrihari. The golden reflection of floral diyas in the river Ganges is the most enchanting sight in the twilight during the Ganga Aarti ceremony at the ghat. Drive past the other bathing Ghats at the Ganga river, where pilgrims come to take a dip… It is believed that all your sins get washed away if you take dip in Ganga river at Haridwar. Thereafter, visit the Mansadevi Temple. This temple atop the Bilwa Parvat offers a panoramic view of Haridwar, the Ganges, and the countryside.

Overnight in Haridwar.

Day 2 - Haridwar-Rishikesh ( 20 Kms / approx.. 1 hour )

After breakfast, drive to Rishikesh. One of the holiest cities in India, Rishikesh is not just known for its religious connection, but also for its stunning landscape. Surrounded by the Shivalik Range on three sides, with holy river Ganga river flowing through it, Rishikesh is truly an ethereal experience. Visit the Lakshman Jhula, a suspended bridge across the Ganga. Legend has it that Lakshman crossed a bridge made of jute ropes here. The view from the bridge is panoramic… mountains, the river, the temples and the ashrams. Later, visit Muni-ki-Reti…literally, the sands of the sages. The sandy banks of the Ganga have been used by the sages for meditation for years, thus giving the area its name.

Return to hotel for overnight stay.

Day 3 - Rishikesh-Mussoorie ( 80 Kms / 2 to 3 hours)

After breakfast, drive to Mussoorie.

Upon arrival, check in at your pre booked hotel.

Afternoon , visit the famous Mall Road… the Mall is Mussoorie's main artery. Running through Kulri Bazaar, on towards Library Chowk, the Mall offers an amazing variety of pastimes. Haggling, bargaining with rosy-cheeked Tibetans over the prices of 'imported' goods and Tibetan metalware; browsing through a bookshop; searching for antiques in the curio-shops; choosing hand-carved walking sticks or handmade cane baskets and other wares. Later, take the cable car that starts from the Mall and goes up to Gun Hill, enjoying the mesmeric views of the Himalayan peaks and a bird's eye view of Mussoorie and its environs.

Return to hotel for overnight stay.

Day 4 - Mussoorie

Today visit Kempty falls, located 15 kms from Mussoorie. The name Kempty is probably derived from 'camp-tea', as the British, during the colonial rule would organize their tea parties here. The falls offer a breathtaking view of the water cascading down forty feet, splitting into five streams on the way. Past Kempty Fall, 12-km downhill, on crossing the Aglar River, one reaches the Yamuna River. Trout are in abundance here, and fishing permits can be obtained.

Evening is at leisure.
