Kunjapuri Temple

Kunjapuri Sunrise Yoga Hike

Kunjapuri is a sacred temple of great importance in the Hindu religion. It is located near Rishikesh, at an altitude of 1,676 m.

In this experience, you'll be hiking in nature and enjoying the spirituality of India.

Our Kunjapuri day hike starts with the sunrise from the temple, where you'll enjoy a view over the Himalayas in the distance. After taking a small Pranayama session, we will have breakfast and start our 12km hike downhill to Tapovan.

You'll enjoy changing landscapes and local villages on the way and be impressed by the beauty of the Neer Waterfall, where you'll take a final break and have time to swim. 

If you wish, we can all have lunch together in Tapovan, and you can participate in a yoga session at our studio in the evening or the next day!

What our clients say about it

Booked the sunrise trek at kunjapuri temple with Japam. This was exactly what I wanted for a day excursion outside of Rishikesh.
Beautiful sunrise view at Kunjapuri template, morning pranayama and a beautiful hike down the valley with stops to eat, drink chai, and swim (highly recommend dipping in one of the pools at Neer Waterfall). Also includes delicious veg lunch back in Rishikesh and afternoon yoga (if you don't fall asleep like me :)
It was a pleasure to meet Himanshu, all around great guy who is a master yoga teacher and also organizes 10-day treks in Himalayas. A new friend and more adventures to come :)
