On the rocky banks of the Ganga River in Rishikesh is a well marked sacred tree
A large fig tree with dangling roots growing above the Ram Jhula footbridge in Rishikesh
There’s a lovely cafe in Rishikesh, overlooking the Ganga and the Laxman bridge, where you can get avocado guacamole, burritos, and all sorts of backpacker food. This tree is in the entranceway, and the roof is built around it.
As you descend towards the Laxman Jhula bridge, you can find this tree spilling over a wall and creating a curtain of roots agains the stone slope.
Prominent next to the Laxman Jhula Bridge in Rishikesh, this peepal tree also also shades a nice restaurant overlooking the Ganga River
On the rocky banks of the Ganga River, a banyan and a peepal tree grow together from the sheer rock of a large boulder, just next to a statue of blue-skinned Krishna.
There is a notable traffic hazard on the road near the village of Byasi in the lower mountain reaches of the Ganga- a strong and massive saal tree growing in the middle of the road
