Therefore if you have not visited Haridwar yet then this festive season you must go and have a dip in the holy Ganges in the Ghats of Haridwar. Haridwar Tour Packages are there for first timers to help see the entire city and enjoy.

Haridwar-a general overview

The name “Haridwar” and “Hardwar” geographically mean the same place but their meanings are a tad different. “Hari” means Lord Vishnu and “dwar” means door and thus “Haridwar” means the door leading to lord Vishnu. Similarly “Har” means Lord Shiva and thus “Hardwar” means the gateway to Lord Shiva. In order to journey Kedarnath (Lord Shiva’s) pilgrimage center, ideally one must start from Hardwar. For tourists visiting Haridwar for the first time, Haridwar Tour Packages are provided by many tour companies for the advantage of tourists. Haridwar is famous for its Ghats, Temples and Aartis.

Other opinions regarding time of visit and mode of transport

Summers and monsoon seasons are not ideal for visiting (as summers are too hot and monsoons are not suitable for bathing in Ganges) and that leaves only winter season to visit Haridwar. As far as transport is concerned, trains are the best way for transportation and if you’re travelling by any Haridwar Tour Packages then rest assured you are in safe hands.
