Help! I am planning a trip to Rishikesh to do a yoga teacher training. I have never been out of the country before (unless you really want to count the Bahamas). I have a passport, and thats about all... I have heard that I need to send it over to India to be approved to go there? Im also looking into flights and Im unsure of which airport I should fly into. Any advice would be helpful! Thanks!!!

I plan to visit Rishikesh during Easter this year - approx. 23-29th March. I'm looking for up to date advice on which hotels to stay at, where to eat and what to see and do. Yoga stuff and meditation are on the to do list as well as maybe hiking in the Himalayas a day or two. The hotel should be clean and with WiFi/LAN.
All tips and information are appreciated!
Thank you for all the replies about the way to Rishikesh. We decided to take a taxi (an a/c SUV). We found a very good site www.starlim.co.in - They can also make train booking (US$10 fees), but they accept paypal that makes the transition easy and safety.
We are now plannig our way back to Delhi - We want to be there only for a day, and we wanna a good tip : to take one of the "day tours" or to go specifically to one place like Humayn's Tomb, Akshardham or any other site?? The 2nd thing we will arrive to Delhi at 6th of april and will need a hotel (our fligth will be at 8th in early mornig). It's better to take a near airport hotel??? THank for all VT members who help each other. Namaste

I'm travelling to India in December and we want to get from Rishikesh to Varanasie, does anyone know if there is a day or overnight train we can get or a bus and not have to return to Delhi first to get to Varanasie? I know the main transport link for Rishikesh is Haridware. The agent i'm using has said there are not trains from Haridware to Varanasie.
Thanks for your assistance.
My question is regarding studying yoga in rishikesh or somewhere else in north india that you might recommend.
I'm arriving in new delhi around the 22nd of september with my husband and we're planning on spending a couple of months traveling in the north. I would like to spend about 4 weeks doing a teacher training course in an ashram...have noticed that there are many so can anyone recommend one from their experience?
Also what sort of money am i looking at spending? I have heard that most include accomodation, food, and sometimes they have cooking classes...
Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge.
