How to get there

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) where you can take a domestic flight into Jolly Grant Airport (DED). The price of the ticket ranges depending on when you book it but it’s usually around 80 USD. Upon arrival, you can use a taxi ride that takes you from the airport to Laxman Jhula. It will cost you 18 USD.

Alternatively, you can also hire a private car to take you from Delhi to Rishikesh. The cost is 75 USD. You have the opportunity to meet up with other students in your yoga teacher training group to arrange a private car in order to keep the cost down. The distance from Delhi to Rishikesh by car is generally six hours but traffic, time of day, and holidays and festivals can make the journey longer.

Arrival by bus

Depending on the time your plane arrives in Delhi, taking a bus can be a tricky option. The Volvo buses from Delhi to Rishikesh stop running around 21:00. If your plane arrives in Delhi in the evening, you will have to get a hotel for the night and then make your way to Delhi ISBT (inter-state bus terminus) in the morning.

From the airport, get a prepaid taxi to take you to Delhi ISBT. You are strongly advised to only go to the government-approved taxi stand located right outside the airport exit. The price from the Delhi airport to Delhi ISBT will be 500 INR.

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 will be leaving for Rishikesh. The bus ticket approximately costs between 300 to 400

INR.

Make sure to ask the bus driver or the bus director where they drop off at Rishikesh. You should get off the bus at Rishikesh bus station 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. 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. 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 one kilometer 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.
