  • The trip was fabulous. Shimla is an amazing place with lots to see and do. Our tour operator was excellent. All of their suggestions and recommendations were solid. We loved our hotel and the location. All the tours were high-quality and we experienced no difficulties with pickups. Mr. Nitin was extremely pleasant to work with and truly wanted us to have a fabulous time.

  • We cannot recommend this travel company enough! My husband and I had been wanting to go to India for quite some time but had not done so due to lack of time to plan a worthwhile trip. Booking with this company was exactly what we needed--we told them the types of places and sites we wanted to see and they took care of the rest.

  • I got exactly the vacation I wanted for almost no work and probably cheaper than I could have done it myself. I told this travel company what I wanted and they just did the rest. The hotels and tours/activities were great! Couldn't have asked for more. Great service too they were very responsive and helpful!

Vashishta Gufa

Vashishta Gufa is a famous attraction famous for meditation. Located at the bank of River Ganga, this gufa is situated at a distance of 16 km from Rishikesh. It takes about an hour’s drive on the Rishikesh Badrinath Highway to reach Vashishta Gufa. For the adventure seeker, this place provides with camping facility. The Vashishta Gufa is situated in the middle of a grove of Gular (Ficus) trees and the slopes leading to sacred River Ganga. It is also famous for a linga, which is considered to be spiritual. It is believed that in the year 1928 and 1961 Sri Swami Purushottamananda Ji visited this gufa and now his ashram is located close to the Vashishta Gufa, where various devotes come for meditation.According to Hindu mythology, after the death of all children of Sage Vashistha, he decided to suicide in river Ganga. But Goddess Ganaga refused his suicide. Then Sage Vashistha's wife decided to stay at the same location due to pleasant environment. Sage Vashistha meditated here for long time in a cave.
