Nestled in the Himalayan foothills about 20 kms beyond Rishikesh, Himalayan Hideaways is a forest rest-house themed lodge overlooking the river rapids.
It makes a great base for seekers, believers, yoga and meditation enthusiasts, and for those seeking a quiet getaway not too far from Delhi. Or try your hand at white-water rafting (starts a mere 3 Kms from here!), and do a soft trek into the hills around.
OpenSky is happy to present this truly hidden gem, a getaway about 5 hours from Delhi!
