Saptrishi Ashram is a beautiful, quaint old, a bit delapidated ashram about 5kms before Haridwar. Founded in 1943 by Goswami Guru Dutt, it belongs to the Sanatan Dharam Pratinidhi Sabha of Punjab. It is meant to work for the revival of Hindu traditions. Housed in the complex is a residential hostel for poor students and a college where Sanskrit is taught. At the time of our visit, there were 180 students in the college, 120 of them being residential. The entire education and food is free for the students.Also within the campus, are 43 "kutiyas" or huts, which are actually small two room independent houses with attached bathrooms and kitchen. They are allotted to devotees to stay for as long and when they like. When vacant they are also given to other people to stay for a few days, usually on recommendation of known persons.
Ganga is just a two minute walk from the gates of the Ashram and is a sight to see. Across the river one can see the Chilla Wild life sanctuary and elephants occassionally cross over to eat from the farms.The Ashram is named "Saptrishi" which means seven sages. In ancient times there were seven saints who used to meditate here. The river Ganga in order to pass by without disturbing them, splits here into seven streams, as can be seen on Google maps.
The Pandav brothers on their way to heaven, passed through this place. This is shown by statues of the five brothers and their wife near the river bank.In more recent times, people walking to Badrinath and Kedarnath used to pass through and sometimes rest here. An old delapidated building near the present ashram was said to be for night stay of pilgrims walking into the hills.

Uttarakhand is amazing state and 2 1/2 weeks wasn't nearly enough time. We planned the trip because our daughter was studying abroad for the semester. Our travel planner tailored the trip to our specifications, quickly making any and all necessary changes. Traveling from the Garhwal to Kumaon, the itinerary was thorough and included maps, directions as well as additional activities to do in each location. We arrived on the Dehradun airport, just after a heavy rain storm that closed the roads to Mussoorie. This was to be our first excursion and we were a bit disappointed. We contacted our travel planner and her team in Uttarakhand who were diligent in trying to rebook a modified version of the tour. Due to weather it did not happen, but the customer service exceeded our expectations. The rest of our time went as planned with awe inspiring scenery from waterfalls, forest & himalayan views sites and relaxing daytrips to surrounding areas of Kanatal, Dhanaulti & Tehri. The real testimony of our travel company's "above and beyond" customer service.We can't thank her enough for handling this stressful situations during the tour.

Despite having to return 3 days early, I would say this was one of the best trips we've ever taken. Our travel planner set up a trip to remember with off the beaten track adventures and once of a lifetime things to do. He was also fantastic and a lifesaver with regard to the COVID-19 issues. He went above and beyond to take care of our revised travel plans and refunds and is still taking care of us. We would definitely use All Seasonsz and our travel planner again! The adventures that our travel planner set up. Car hire, auli tour, restaurants recommendations and hotels. All were top notch and wonderful experiences.

Wow ! Simply the best trip of our lifetime.We think we are fortunate to choose this travel agency as a potential agent to be a partner in planning our trip. The agency planned a two week trip and even when the weather and the covid virus hit. She never lost sight of our trip and how to ensure we had the information to make the decision right for us. We choose to have the agenda adjusted to avoid areas of our concern. The new agenda provided us a more unique experience than we anticipated. Especially thanks to "Jyoti" the travel planner from All seasonsz and the travel team.

We had worked with this travel agent before and had found her to be professional, helpful, and wonderful to work with. Accordingly, we chose to work with her again this year as we began planning our annual diving holiday. Again, this travel agent distinguished herself as the consummate professional, and more than that, a person with a huge amount of patience and empathy.We were relieved that our agent still had enthusiasm for our trip, and came up with several suggestions.All of the special requests and arrangements must have been a headache for our agent, but it all worked out. We had a five star holiday!

We had a large group, 24 people from small children, teens and adults traveling to Uttarakhand from Kolkata. I contacted this Uttarakhand travel agent and from the first the contact person-Mayank was very patient, very prompt, responded to all my emails and all my questions. He and his team arranged a wonderful vacation for us. We had a private bus, always prompt, always clean. Our hotels were perfect, clean, modern amenities. The rooms were always ready for us and everything was consistently smooth. It was a well organized, wonderful and memorable tour of Uttarakhand. We got to see and do so much and this agent had arranged it all! From rafting to bungee jumping, to cable car ride in Auli we did it all! One of our favorite vacations!!
Thank you very much for your review Rahul. We are working very hard to deliver the best possible user experience and the absolute best supply of great multiday tours all around the Uttarakhand & Himachal. Thus, highly appreciate your feedback.
