Camping in Rishikesh: A Magical World In A Spiritual Destination!

Hello friends, this is your vivacious Vanshika Dutta; hope you all are doing great! Well, in this piece of writing, I am going to tell few really enticing things about a place which is quite similar to my hometown.

Being born and brought up in Darjeeling, I have always been attracted to hills and mountains. Darjeeling is perhaps one of the major attractions in north-east part of India. From the mesmerizing view of the Mount Kanchenjunga to the beautiful tea gardens, everything about my place is quite wonderful.

A call from Rishikesh

However, since a long time I have the desire of exploring the natural beauty of Rishikesh. Yes, the amazing place in Uttarakhand, which is known for its adventurous activities and pilgrimage as well.
