Neer Garh Waterfall is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Rishikesh because it is situated amid the grandeur of the Himalayas and the lush greenery of the thick forests. The waterfall is quite high, and the forces of the water are pretty fast. That is why most people prefer to visit this fall after the monsoons due to the massive volume of water of the fall. Even though the fall is situated in naturally beautiful surroundings, you will be able to get coffee, Maggi noodles, and other dishes from the roadside stalls located near the fall.

Begin this tour by getting picked up and embark on this journey to the hotel. Reach the starting point of the trek.

Many people tend to skip this level of Neer Garh Falls, heading straight for the concrete track leading to the upper tiers. If you’d prefer a more secluded waterfall away from cafes and crowds, I’d recommend stopping by the lower level. You’ll find this just out of sight, below the top bend of Neer Garh Road, near the waterfall car park (GPS coordinates below). This level has a few smaller tiers and shallow, turquoise swimming holes. This section of the waterfall is quite steep, but makes for an amazing view as you bask in the fresh Himalayan waters as you look out over the mountainscape ahead. Keep on climbing up the trail, resting on the many benches as needed. Soon you will find the second bridge and the main Neer Garh Waterfall. This is the tallest of the three falls, standing at roughly 25 feet. This waterfall also feeds into the largest swimming hole and even a concrete platform to get in from. The water here is pretty chilly year-round, but definitely refreshing.
