    How to get there Review Like


    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 (city nearby), and from Dehradun is a 30 min drive by car, so you save a hustle.


    Delhi airport to Rishikesh by car is a 6 hours journey. We have a transportation package for US$ 150 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 US$ 85. In case, your flight arrives late night and you want to stay overnight in Delhi, airport pick-up cost will be US$ 25 and a reasonably good accommodation at a hotel in Delhi can be arranged for US$ 40 or 50. Our travel arrangements are executed under the supervision of professionals and we are always ready with a back-up plan, in case of emergencies. 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). 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 USD 10~20. From Delhi airport to Paharganj can be reached by airport metro express in less than 20 minutes and it costs less than US$ 2

      Om... Namaste :-)

      The experience was very very great! I felt safe, joy love, happiness and cared for by all staff members. The kitchen staff are always happy, they try to teach us Hindu and sing/dance with us and make food with lots of joy and love. Everyone is friendly, the weekend activities were a great break from the scheduled week. When someone was ill, each and every staff member got involved, from the team coordinator to the chefs making special food, even the teachers would tell us Ayurvedic treatments or pranayama cleansing techniques. I will truly miss my dear new friends, the bond is so strong with the girls, and the beautiful energy surrounding us all. Please thank everyone for their amazing energy and efforts for us... Namaste
