Hello helpful travelers -

What to wear in Rishikesh in February?
We plan to be there just a few days, doing general touristy things (bridges, etc) and also a day of rafting.

Would love your advice for outerwear and footwear.

Thanks!

These things are relative of course. And no one can predict the weather on a given day this far ahead. That said:

I've spent a February week in Rishikesh, always sunny, never rained, although cool. I like to be warm, so I wore an undershirt, shirt, and a cotton 'sweater'.

My travelling companion was fine in just a cotton blouse.

Shoes - well, comfortable walking shoes, but I imagine that's what you'll be wearing in India anyway.

The Ganges water was really cold, but not cold enough to stop me from bathing in it.

I expect the rafting company will be providing any 'water proofs' they deem necessary (along with life jackets).
Gone.
