Travel Tips for Haridwar

Hardwar : Still Mesmerising....

by samitbabu

Hardwar ( or the gate to (reach) Har or Shiva) serves as the gateway to most of the Garhwal mountains. This is a city that have eternally fascinated me with all its flavour.
Eternally a holy city or site for the Hindus , Hardwar is also a busy city with pilgrims and tourists thronging it alike.

Situated 26 kms from Rishikesh, Hardwar stands at the foothills of the Himalayas and has major road and rail connections to north and other parts of India.
The city is vegetarian.. meaning you cannot have non veg food here. The region in fact is mostly vegetarian ...reason being this is one of the most holy areas for the Hindus with the Panchkedar and Panch Badri dotted around the garhwal Himalayas. The Evening Sandhya Aarti from the Har ki Paori is fascinating, provided you are fine with jostling the crowds and arriving earlier to find a nice viewing space. The best of course is near the base of the Clock Tower which gives direct view to the Aarti.

Attached are couple of pictures taken in 2001.

A Rendezvous with Ganga

by nsurati

"My first visit to Uttaranchal"

This was my first visit to the state of Uttaranchal. The entire state is full of amazingly beautiful places. Most places in Uttaranchal can be visited only in summer & monsoon, i.e from March to September. Starting October to February, snow blocks most tourist attractions towards the Himalayas. One can go till Haridwar and Rishikesh though.

The cities of Haridwar and Rishikesh are closest you can get to the Himalayas if living in the plains. Haridwar is one of the most important pilgrimage destinations for Hindus. The others being Kedarnath and Badrinath which are further above from Haridwar.

I had gone for work and so could not really enjoy the city of Haridwar or Rishikesh. But I did get to see Ganga. For us Hindus, Ganga is considered to be holiest of rivers. I was enthralled, enchanted (I am running out of adjectives) when I first saw the holy Ganges.

If you are religious or even if you are not, the evening prayer or what we call evening aarti is a must-see spectacle. I cant write much about it since I could not see it myself.

What I could see was Laxman Jhula in Rishikesh. About 16 kms from Rishikesh is Shivpuri where you can do white water rafting in the rapids of the Ganga. The river is very serene at Laxman Jhula. The Laxman Jhula is basically a suspension bridge on the river. The story goes that since Laxmana - the brother of Rama decided to medidate at the location, he requested the river Ganges to remain quite and hence it is so serene there.

Logically, the river is very deep in those regions and hence it looks very calm. Once you move upwards towards the origin of the river which is called Gaumukh, the river width reduces in size considerably, however it is very deep.

Walking down the length of Laxman Jhula is a very pleasant sight. You feel one with the holy river.

I need to make a trip to Uttaranchal once again to experience the beauty of the state.
