Neer Garh / Neer Gaddu Waterfall
At a distance of 9 km from Rishikesh Railway Station, Neer Gaddu or Neer Garh Waterfall is a natural waterfall situated on Rishikesh - Badrinath Highway in Uttarakhand. This is one of the popular waterfalls in Uttarakhand, and among the must-visit Rishikesh tourist places.
Neer Gaddu Waterfall is famous for its small trek. The water flowing from natural rocky cliffs tempts the holidaymakers to take a cool dip in the narrow stream. Trekking to the waterfall is an adventurous activity as it involves walking through the jungle on narrow trails. This is a beautiful waterfall and is extremely refreshing to stand near the waterfall.
This is a two-tier waterfall with two bathing pools. There is a very small waterfall after a 200 m trek from the road where visitors can also take bath in a small pool as part of Rishikesh holiday packages. A further 1.2 km trek will take you to the bigger and main waterfall which has a large pool.
There are two bridges on the waterfall and few resting stops. Butterflies of different species are seen fluttering around the wildflowers, adding beauty to this wonderful spot. Water, soft drinks, noodles, and tea are available here in small shops.
Neer Gaddu Waterfall is accessible by trek only. The trek route to the Neer Garh waterfall starts 3 km away from Lakshman Jhula on the Badrinath Highway.
