After we spent 2 days in Lansdowne we planned to return back to Delhi via Haridwar and Rishikesh.
During night we reached Har Ki Paudi and it was enriching experience.
The next day we headed towards Rishikesh to enjoy some water sports and shopping. I bought Singing bowl from Rishikesh which is rare to find in India and was available at Rishikesh at almost all shops. If you are into relaxing meditation then do try Singing bowl.
Enjoyed my trip to Lansdowne, Haridwar and Rishikesh in 3 days and reached home with full relaxed mind ready to work with better efficiency for next few months.
