How to Reach Rishikesh?


By Plane
Rishikesh is in close proximity of Dehradun's Jolly Grant Airport [15 kms] a recently renovated airport. There are multiple direct flights from Delhi which is the nearest metro airport. Flight options have increased dramatically and prices have dropped sharply making it both affordable and faster to fly to the area.
 
By Car
Delhi airport to Rishikesh by car is a good option for a hassle free traveling specially for foreign tourists who are traveling to India for the first time. It's a 6 to 7 hours journey. Prices vary from US$ 85 for an air conditioned compact car to US$ 125 for an air conditioned SUV (but rates are much higher if one avails these services from prepaid taxi booths located at the airport).
 
By Train
A quiet branch line connects Rishikesh to Haridwar, but there are only about three slow trains daily. It is better to take the train to Haridwar and continue by bus (45 min, Rs.30), by taxi (30 min, Rs.800) or by shared auto-rickshaw (40 min, Rs.35). However, travelling by train is recommended in peak seasons or during a 'mela' (fair) when bus routes are diverted in Haridwar whereas trains often run empty and the fares are low (just Rs.4 for a passenger train service).
