Being a very popular tourist destination and a very famous pilgrim spot, Rishikesh has a good network of buses that depart daily from New Delhi. It is located at a distance of 230 Km from Delhi, and it takes approximately 7 hours to reach the place in bus from Delhi. One can choose from a variety of regular, deluxe or luxury buses, both AC and non-AC, to commute to Rishikesh. It is well-connected to the places like Haridwar, Dehradun and New Delhi.

Journey Suggestion: The national highways are in good condition, that ensures a comfortable journey. However, in the interiors the roads are not that good and are bumpy at places. Hence, please stay patient to cross those areas and enter the city interiors. During the season of any festivals or fairs, the roads get super crowded and the traffic control deteriorates. So, it might take several hours to reach your destination in Rishikesh during that season.

Haridwar Railway station is the nearest and biggest railhead to Rishikesh, that is located only 25 Km away from the city. It is directly connected to the major Indian cities like Kolkata, Lucknow, Varanasi, Delhi, Mumbai and others. Rishikesh Railway Station, that lies on the northern railway zone of the Indian Railways, is located as the branch line to Haridwar station in the city.
