We travellers like going places. From the top of the mountain to the bottom of the ocean to sandy beaches and riverbanks. And we have always been grateful to Haridwar and Rishikesh for offering some of the best spots on the banks of the holy river Ganga. Nothing can match the experience of taking a dip in the waters that are known to have healing powers. Neither is there a better place for whitewater rafting in India. Having known that, and understanding that this is a great time to cool yourself by the river. India Today lists Atali Ganga amongst the best resorts to stay around Haridwar and Rishikesh.
Sitting quietly on the top of a hill, surrounded by a green cover, the Atali Ganga resort offers accommodation in 22 independent cottages, each of which offers stunning views of the Ganga valley. The interiors of these cottages have been carefully crafted to offer the qualities of modern architecture, blended well with the natural environment. What sets the resort apart from the rest is its unique location–while it offers valley views like no other in the area, the property itself is in the middle of a reserve forest filled with several colourful birds and trees. Besides, there’s a plethora of adventure activities on offer including a 24-foot climbing wall, rafting, kayaking, mountain biking, abseiling, hiking, yoga, and jumaring.
Where: Atali Ganga is located at a distance of 30 km from the main town of Rishikesh and is best reached by road.
Our property is an oasis surrounded by Reserved Forest, and it is a thorough privilege to be so close to nature. If you book, come with the purpose of living in the valley of India’s holiest life force, the Ganga, for the call of the barking deer, or the midnight roar of the leopard ; and for that lovely dull ache after a busy day in the great outdoors. 80% of the property is built on a hillside, and you will have to walk a series of steps to reach your cottage. If your group includes infants, small kids and infirm elders, do request for cottages closer to the Cafe´.
