Transportation

From Delhi to Rishikesh
The distance from Delhi to Rishikesh is generally 6 hours but traffic, time of day and holidays/ festivals can make the journey longer.
The three major methods of transportation to get from Delhi to Rishikesh are private car, bus or plane. Hiring a private car to take you from Delhi to Rishikesh is the easiest option for first time travelers to India with bus and train being more complicated.

Private Car
A private car will cost around $75 USD from Delhi to Rishikesh. You have the opportunity to meet up with other students in your yoga teacher training group to arrange to share a private car in order to keep the cost down. Once you arrive in Rishikesh, direct your driver to take you as close to Laxman Jhula Bridge as he can. There’s only so far that four-wheel vehicles can go before the road becomes a bike/ pedestrian path only.

Once you get to Laxman Jhula Bridge, cross it and make a right at Mango Tree Guesthouse. You’ll pass many shops, cafes and stores on your way to the school. Follow the path all the way down for about 1 km until you see the path curve left up a slight hill. Continue up that curve and World Peace Yoga School will be on your left-hand side.

Bus
Depending on the time your plane arrives in Delhi, this can be a tricky option. Volvo buses (best condition) from Delhi to Rishikesh stop running around 9 PM at night. If your plane arrives in Delhi around evening time, you will have to get a hotel for the night and then make your way to Delhi ISBT (Interstate Bus Terminus) in the morning.

From the airport, get a prepaid taxi to take you to Delhi ISBT. Only go to the governmentapproved taxi stand located right outside the airport exit. The price from the Delhi airport to Delhi ISBT will be 500 INR (Indian Rupees).

Once you arrive at Delhi ISBT, navigate your way to the bus station’s ticket stands on the second level (go up the escalator). Go to the Uttarakhand State booth and ask when the next volvo bus (best quality) will be leaving for Rishikesh. That bus ticket should cost between 300 INR - 400 INR.

Make sure to ask the bus driver/bus director where they drop off at Rishikesh. You should depart from the bus at Rishikesh Bus Station (there’s only one!) which is usually their last stop if their destination is Rishikesh.

Once you arrive at Rishikesh Bus Station, find an auto rickshaw (tuk tuk) to take you to Laxman Jhula Bridge (Lock-Man Jewel-Uh Bridge). An auto rickshaw will cost around 300 INR from the bus station to Laxman Jhula Bridge. They will drop you near or around a path that has a sign leading you to Laxman Jhula. Feel free to ask the locals for further direction if need be. Once you get to Laxman Jhula Bridge, cross it and make a right at Mango Tree Guesthouse.

You’ll pass many shops, cafes and stores on your way to the school. Follow the path all the way down for about 1 km until you see the path curve left up a slight hill. Continue up that curve and World Peace Yoga School will be on your left-hand side.

Plane
You can also book a plane ticket from Delhi airport to Dehradun airport (Jolly Grant). The price of that ticket ranges depending on when you book it, but it’s usually around $80 USD. The taxi from the airport to Laxman Jhula is around $18 USD.
