Located 18-20 miles north of Rishikesh in Uttarakhand, India, Atali Ganga, in the foothills of the Himalayas, offers the perfect blend of adventure and calm.


Uttarakhand is known as the "Land of the Gods" due to its numerous pilgrimage sites and sacred rivers. The Upper Ganges Valley, where Atali Ganga is situated, is particularly revered for its serene landscapes and spiritual ambiance.

Surrounded by a reserved forest, the resort offers activities like mountain biking, wall climbing, hiking, camping, kayaking, and rafting. After an action-packed day, the resort is a perfect spot to unwind by the pool, enjoy a sundowner, and dine under the stars around a bonfire.


Unique Accommodations with a Purpose

Atali Ganga’s accommodations immerse you in the natural beauty of the region. The 22 cottages, built with a modern ashram aesthetic, offer minimalist and small yet comfortable living spaces with breathtaking views of the valley and the Himalayas.

Each air-conditioned cottage comes with a personal deck. For families or larger groups, the two 4-bedroom villas, Alakananda and Bhagirathi, provide forest views.


Note: The accommodations are on a hillside location and one needs to climb 100+ steps to get to your cottage. If traveling with those with walking difficulties, it is important to let the staff know ahead of time so that they can find you a cottage closer to the cafe.


A Hub for Adventure and Relaxation

The charm of Atali lies in its rustic nature. While the compact accommodations might offer fewer modern comforts, they are intentionally designed to encourage guests to spend more time outdoors. Here, the focus is on fresh air, engaging activities, thrilling adventures, and the simple pleasure of reading a good book amidst nature. Atali invites you to truly interact with the great outdoors and embrace the beauty of the natural environment.


The High Ropes Course, Altitude@Atali, is one of the resort's highlights, challenging and inspiring guests with its team-building activities. If you are not afraid of heights, this is a must-do! A separate outdoor schedule for kids ensures they have an engaging and memorable stay.
