Parmarth Niketan Walk

3.5 Hours
4 Kilometers

Located on the banks of the Ganges River, is the ashram known as Parmarth Niketan. Like monasteries, ashrams are places for spiritual retreat. On the banks of the river, it has a 14-foot-tall statue of Lord Shiva. It offers the ideal blend of contemporary conveniences with profound spirituality with lovely gardens, sculptures, and a spiritual environment.

The walk will begin at the Janki Setu bridge, and to get to the Parmarth Niketan Ashram, you will cross the Ganges on a boat. The walk will culminate with a kilometer-long uphill journey to the Bhootnath Temple, which is located at an elevation, followed by a visit to a gems store.
