Why monsoon is not the best time to visit Rishikesh?

Monsoon is an off-season in Rishikesh. Though rates of hotels and outdoor activities are lower during monsoons, you can avoid monsoons when planning for Rishikesh.

There is a danger of landslides and rainfall is also irregular. Therefore we will not suggest monsoon season as the best time to visit Rishikesh.
