Rishikesh wasn’t originally in our plan but we heard such great things about the place made internationally famous by the Beatles that we decided to brave the 16 hour train journey and head up there.
We weren’t disappointed. The town is set in the foothills of the Himalayas and is made even more beautiful by the River Ganges which meanders through it. We stayed in an Ashram to try our hand at clean living and yoga – neither of which came as naturally to John as clapping his symbols!
In addition to the agonising ‘stretching’ we trekked into the mountains to see some lovely waterfalls and fantastic views before heading back to Bikaner feeling refreshed, flexible and ready for a drink.
