Once we arrive in New Delhi the journey to Rishkesh begins. To accommodate different types of travelers, we offer two options for making your way north to the foothills of the Himalayas.
India’s railway is world renowned for its extensive network of tracks and stations. Traveling by rail in India is a cultural experience like none other. As our train meanders through the Indian countryside you will pass through cities large and small, tiny villages and farmlands. While the experience is full of the sights and sounds of India, many people find the five hour trip and the intensity of the train station a bit much and are willing to pay a little extra for the convenience of flying. Becasue a round trip train ticket is included, so people traveling on a budget will likely want to choose transit by train.
If you would rather avoid the intensity of the train, we are happy book a round trip flight as well as airport shuttle service for you. The flight from Delhi to Rishikesh is less than one hour with a 30-40 minute drive from the airport to our hotel. Round trip airfares can vary, but generally cost about $200. The flights often sell out, so if you want to fly, you should let us know as soon as possible.
