How to get there

Arrival by airplane

The closest and most convenient airport for you is to fly to New Delhi. If you are visiting India for the first time then it is better for you to take a flight to Dehradun (a city nearby), and from Dehradun is a 30-minute drive by car. Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) to Rishikesh by car is a 6-hour journey. They have a transportation package for 150 USD which will cover your airport pick-up, transfer from Delhi to Rishikesh (by car) and after completion of the course, transfer back from Rishikesh to Delhi.

One-way transportation from Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) to Rishikesh can also be arranged for 85 USD. In case your flight arrives late at night and you want to stay overnight in Delhi, airport pick-up cost will be 25 USD and a reasonably good accommodation at a hotel in Delhi can be arranged for 40 or 50 USD. The travel arrangements are executed under the supervision of professionals and they are always ready with a backup plan, in case of emergencies.

Another good option is to travel by train. From the airport, you can go to New Delhi train station by car, then by train to Haridwar and from Haridwar to Rishikesh by car. Travel by bus is quite cheap but a bit inconvenient for first-time visitors. Cheap hotels can also be found in Delhi (Main Bazar, Paharganj area) for 10 - 20 SUD. The transportation from Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) to Paharganj can be reached by airport metro express in less than 20 minutes and it costs less than 2 USD.
