Tips from insiders

  • You can enjoy some other experiences at additional pricing like - Ayurvedic massages, Private ceremonies, Garhwali cooking classes, Tour of Hari Ki Pauri & Kankhal, Guided tours of local temples and Safari at Rajaji National Park.
  • The Sapt Rishi constellation, also known as the Big Dipper, is visible on a clear night from the terrace and the rooms are named after these stars.
  • Avoid visiting Haridwar in the rainy season, you can't maximise the benefit of hill stations, river water is muddy and the ghats are slippery.
