By plane
The center of town where the train and bus stations can be found is of little interest to most travelers. Further north-east are 2 bridges spanning the Ganges, '''Ram Jhula''' [] and '''Lakshman Jhula'''[], at either end of these bridges are the main hubs of activity and interest.
Most accommodation and restaurants can be found near Lakshman Jhula, High Bank and Swarg Ashram.
===By plane===
Rishikesh is in close proximity of [[Dehradun]]'s Jolly Grant Airport (about 15 km) - a small, quiet and recently renovated airport handling just two flights from Delhi. The runway is being extended and will possibly then handle flights from other metros as of now there are flights only from Delhi (The capital of India).
===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). Lovee Travels offers excellent services round The direct number for the clockcab company in Laksman Jula is 0135 2442097. Operating from Rishikesh it offers pick up Cost for a transfer to/from Delhi or Dehradun Airports,Railway stationsairport is 35, at a very reasonable price. They also offer package trips. Contact Mr.Ajay @000 IRS (0includes all taxes and tolls) 9568258721and naturally must be arranged in advance for airport pickups. Making arrangements at the airport in impossible, and improbable from else where in Delhi for these prices.
===By train===
===By bus===
From [[Delhi]] the city is about 230 km away and is well connected with buses. A bus journey may take about 5-7 hours - depending on the traffic - and costs you about Rs 130-350. An AC Bus will cost about Rs 250-500700. In Rishikesh, there are several travel agencies scattered around Swarg Ashram and Lakshman Jhula that can book luxury buses to common destinations like [[Delhi]] (Rs 250-500700), [[Jaipur]], [[Pushkar]] and [[Varanasi]]. The right time to visit would be February, March, August-October. In July there is a festival called Saavan where thousands of people flock to Rishikesh. Major roads are blocked and hotels are crowded. It is better to avoid travelling to Rishikesh during that time.
