The construction of various grand temples around the Jhula has made it one of the most visited places in Rishikesh.

Parmarth Niketan –  12.2 Km’s

It is the largest ashram in Rishikesh, providing its thousands of pilgrims who come from all corners of the Earth with a clean, pure and sacred atmosphere as well as abundant, beautiful gardens.

The illuminated lamps in the evening provide a beautiful view from where we are just walkable.

Neelkanth Mahadev Temple – 30 Minutes’ drive (approx. 22 KM’s)
Neelkanth Mahadev Temple is among the most revered shrines dedicated to Lord Shiva that is located around 32 km away from Rishikesh. Positioned on a hill above Swarg Ashram, this ancient temple lies at the confluence of the Pankaja and Madhumati rivers, amid three valleys – Brahmakoot, Vishnukoot and Manikoot.

Shivpuri Rafting – 10 Minutes’ Drive
If you have a knack for adventure, Rishikesh is the place to be. Apart from the religious humdrum, this getaway is always buzzing with ample opportunities to pump up your adrenaline in a raft while tearing through the Shivpuri Rafting. The Booking office of Rafting is 10 minutes drive from Explore Himalaya manged by Petals Hotels and Resorts.

Bungee Jumping – 20 Minutes’ drive (approx. 17 KM’s)
Bungy Jumping is an activity that involves jumping from a tall structure while connected to a large elastic cord. The tall structure is usually a fixed object, such as a building, bridge or crane; but it is also possible to jump from a movable object, such as a hot-air-balloon or helicopter, that has the ability to hover above the ground. The thrill comes from the free-falling and the rebound. When the person jumps, the cord stretches and the jumper flies upwards again as the cord recoils, and continues to oscillate up and down until all the energy is dissipated. On Request, Pick from Hotel is very much possible, if you are interested to explore this adventure.
