Himalayas India

Hiking in the Himalayas

The Ananda has some beautiful guided treks from the hotel. Here are some ideas.

Kunjapuri Temple Trek:  14km north of Ananda, Kunjapuri soars 1,645 metres high to commemorate Goddess Shakti and Lord Shiva idols.  Awaken one’s spirituality with snowcapped Himalayan Mountain vistas and sacred surroundings at sunrise or sunset. Guided by the spa staff, the 3-4 hour trek experience is a sound balance to a fulfilling Ananda Yoga programme.

Trek to Laxman Jhula:  Distance: 9 Kms. Time: 3 hrs (down hill only).  This is a downhill trek passing through verdant Sal forests. If the guests wish, they can spend the evening in the town of Rishikesh and watch the evening Aarti performed every evening on the banks of the river Ganga.The return to Ananda by car.

Nature Walk:  Contemplative and nurturing. The morning starts with a fresh juice served in the Spa lounge, followed by a guided stroll along the trail enjoying the beauty and tranquility of nature. At a certain point guests have the opportunity to be guided to a deep meditative experience. The walk ends with a ginger/lemon tea and a relaxed soak in the pool, spa or sauna.
