Rishikesh: Ten Things To Do In India’s Most Spiritual And Vegan-Friendly City
By Franceska Lynne and Warren Gang

Photo by Sole Mare Images.
Rishikesh, in the Indian state of Uttarakhand, is a holy city on the Ganges, and is made up of a cluster of smaller areas: Ram Jhula, Laxman Jhula, Tapovan, Laxman Mandir, and Swarg Ashram (the “main drag”). Although famous for its yoga, meditation, and spirituality, the area around Rishikesh is also a popular site for hiking, trekking, and whitewater rafting the Himalayas. It is also an all-veg city, meaning that it is a vegan paradise!

How to get there – domestic airlines fly to Dehradun from major Indian cities like Mumbai and Delhi, or you can take the train to Hardiwar. Taxis are available for the ride to Rishikesh, which takes about 45 minutes to an hour.

What to expect – India is an intense sensory experience – its sights, sounds, smells, and tastes are truly unique. Rishikesh is an oasis on the banks of India’s most sacred river, the Ganges, known as “Mother Ganga,” the giver of life. Many Indians vacation in Rishikesh, and it is the site of year-round religious pilgrimages. Read more

How I Found My Passion As A Vegan Globetrotter!
By Wendy Werneth

My interest in veganism began with concern for my own health and for the environment. In November 2013, as I watched my father on his deathbed, lying in excruciating pain from a long list of complications caused by Type 1 diabetes, I was struck by the truth of my own mortality and knew that I never wanted to end up in such a miserable condition.

A few months later, as I began to learn more about plant-based diets, I found out about studies showing that the casein in cow’s milk can trigger the onset of Type 1 diabetes in people who, like me, are genetically predisposed to the disease.

Once I knew this, it made it difficult to enjoy eating dairy products, wondering with each bite if I was writing my own death sentence. As I continued to research the subject, I found out about more and more health benefits to plant-based eating.

Environmental sustainability has always been of great concern to me, and that concern grows each day as the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere continues to rise ever higher, and as I watch all the destruction we humans are wreaking on this planet. I knew that the ecological footprint of a plant-based diet was much smaller than that of a meat-based one, and this had been the catalyst for my previous forays into vegetarianism, beginning when I was in college.
