How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

The closest and most convenient airport for you is to fly to Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL). If you are visiting India for the first time, then it is better for you to take a flight to Dehradun Airport (DED), and from Dehradun is a 30 minutes drive by car, so you save a hustle.

Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) to Rishikesh by car is a 6-hour journey. Himalayan Yoga Association 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 i.e. Delhi airport to Rishikesh can also be availed for 75 USD.

In case your flight arrives late 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. Himalayan yoga Association travel arrangements are executed under the supervision of professionals and they are always ready with a back-up plan, in case of emergencies.

Arrival by train

Another good option is to travel by train (airport to New Delhi train station by car, then by train to Haridwar and from Haridwar to Rishikesh by car).

Arrival by bus

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 to 20 USD. The journey from Delhi Airport to Paharganj can be done by airport metro express in less than 20 minutes and it costs less than 2 USD.

If you opt to use public transportation to reach the school, please contact the school upon arriving in Rishikesh, so they can help you with directions for walking a short distance to the school.

It is safe to travel alone to Rishikesh, many tourists do it. However, it might be a bit challenging to travel by local buses or trains sometimes if you have never been to India before, as it is very different from other parts of the world.

Airport: Dehradun Airport Airport transfer included: Dehradun Airport No additional charges. You can request this in the next step.
