In Rishikesh, the environment is affecting because of the tourists visiting the area and air is also getting polluted by the consumption of drugs and medicines used by them. Therefore, the saints and yogis who are meditating on the banks of Ganges and preaching God on the riverside are also facing problem. The Beatles visited the place and even John Lennon also recorded the “The Happy Rishikesh Song” .

The rafting camps are needed to stop as it is the leading factor of the pollution of Ganga, as it discharges effluent, and people throw waste which is disturbing the ecological environment of Rishikesh. When the rafting camps are established on the sites, they are temporary and beautiful, so the places will also lack in sanitation and sewage facility. It is also a disturbing factor for the animal husbandry available, destroying the peace and serenity of the place of pilgrims.

This hub of yoga is located in North of Uttarakhand, India. The term “Hrishikesh" is derived from the word Hrishik meaning Vishnu that is 'lord of the sense' therefore the word Hrishikesh refers to Lord Vishnu or Lord of Sense. Being the gateway for Hindu pilgrimage, Rishikesh is also famous for its rich culture and heritage as well as exotic range of food that is offered here.

Several myths are associated with this place. A common believe is that a saint namely Raibhya Rishi came here and performed penance on the Ganges River bank. Being contented with his gestures, Lord Vishnu appeared to him in shape of this beautiful city Hrishikesh which is now known as Rishikesh. This place gained popularity after the Adi Shankaracharya visited it in the 9th century. He was regarded as popular religious chief of modern era. It is also stated that Lord Rama came here to seek repentance for killing Ravana who was the demon. His younger brother crossed this River Ganges at the spot where the bridge made from jute is standing today. By law this city is considered a vegetarian place and a holy city too.

During monsoon season (late July to mid-September) there is heavy rainfall in the region.

If you are plan to visit Rishikesh after November, make sure you carry heavy winter clothing with you, since it gets quite frigidity here during winter .

Located on foothill of Himalaya mountains, it presents a fresh and cool flee during summers. March-April and also September-October is an ideal visiting time. From second quarter the weather gets hotter and in July-August, heavy showers are experienced making the place muddy and mushy. In the monsoon season the climate is humid with roads and pavements being more slippery because of the steepness this hilly area has. Right after the rainy season the surroundings are fresh, moist, greener and soothing so that time is preferable too.
