The Rishikesh Valley is exactly what I wanted. Though the trip there was daunting and the hotel was quite hard to find. (having to get an auto from the bus stand, then walk across the hanging bridge then through lax manjular (spelling sorry) to get a jeep the next 10kms then walk down the winding path.) BUT COMPLETLY WORTH IT!!! I was just staying three nights but I would have loved to stay longer.
Anand and Subudhi are amazing hosts. the Yoga in the mornings is a wonderful way to start the day, the accomidation was inspiring and something you don't see the likes of very ofen. and the food.... some of the best I'd had in India. Fresh, spimple but endless in variety at the same time.
It is quite a distance from the main part of the town (and can be hard to impossible to get a taxi at night) but there is plenty to do in the valley. Just stilling drinking homemade chai and watching the birds in the morning is bliss.
I cannot suggest it enough and I cannot wait to return.
