Day 3 - Rishikesh

The weather looked gloomy with an overcast sky as we woke up. We had breakfast at the hotel and decided to visit Rishikesh today. Again we headed back the way we came yesterday and after crossing Rajaji National Park the road divides and one goes towards to Dehradun and one to Rishikesh. The drive was pleasant, as we opted Laxman  Jhula as our destination google map smartly took us via highway bypassing the main city.But at the end the roads started to get narrower lucky for us we found a parking lot packed yet as we early risers ;)

We are @ Bangalore

This post is going to be a quick one, need to write and publish in next 8 minutes time I have from my grueling schedule. Just to let you know we (this time Aarush & Pamela accompanied me) reached safely after traveling from west to central-part to east and then to south of India . The details of long travel will require several small posts but with Aarush, new apartment and work do not think we will be left with ample time to write those. Looking forward to meet all the Bangalore acquaintances soon.
