Monkey & Fish Food Rishikesh

Since 2016 the feeding of the monkeys in Rishikesh will be fined.

People who feed monkeys do more harm than good, and anyone doing so will be fined, a top state forest official has said. Feeding monkeys adversely alters their natural behaviour as it makes them reliant on humans for food, it says.

Rishikesh is a city in India’s northern state of Uttarakhand, in the Himalayan foothills beside the Ganges River. The river is considered holy, and the city is renowned as a center for studying yoga and meditation. Temples and ashrams (centers for spiritual studies) line the eastern bank around Swarg Ashram, a traffic-free, alcohol-free and vegetarian enclave upstream from Rishikesh town.
