Nice Location, Avoid on week end

Every thing is right about the place except week end . . Delhi and Haryana people mostly visit the place on weekend. Traffic is a nightmare on weekend. Week day is the best option to reach there. Reach there by Friday evening and book your hotels in advance. Better if you opt for Shivpuri or Neelkanth road hotels as city is crowded during weekend.

Very Good

Its a yoga retreat and adventitious location. Lots of activities to do. Yoga, river rafting, spiritual Bath, Ganga River, water sports, Trekking, Camping, etc. Not that far from airport, I suggest to stay hotels which are near to mountains. Lack of public transport make your travel hectic, and for foreign tourist, local shopkeepers charge almost double. So beware.
