The drive from Rishikesh to this hostel is itself an adventure, just the amazing mountain villages along the way give you a great insight into indian life in these remote areas.. Arriving at Nirvan I was taken back by the views it has of the Himalaya foothills, as a photographer it was a dream come true.... The Hostel is a beautifully decorated, clean, comfortable place with great energy that will allow you to unwind from the hustle and bustle of India and just relax amongst nature. I took a short walk down the road to a little village where people are so friendly and welcoming that I went from guest to local over one cup of chai .. If you want to comfortably experience nature, or traditional Indian life in remote India, this Hostel is for you..
