      I'm going to do teacher 200 hour training in rishikesh. I notice I can book before leaving home at most schools and was planning to do so. But since there are so many schools now does anyone having been there know if I can just show up, take a look at some schools and their accomodations and sign up on site... any recommendations for Schools?

Are the locals nice or nasty? Are there lots of druged hippies? Is there a lot of "religious frauds" like devotie fishing gooing on?

      Visiting Rishikesh

      by xantylaol Online Now Feb 10, 2013 at 10:53 AM

      Hi!

      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!

      Regards
      Chris

      Returnig from Rishikesh to Delhi

      by malka12 Online Now Mar 26, 2011 at 1:31 AM

      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

      Rishikesh to Varanasie

      by atinom Online Now Oct 19, 2009 at 6:10 AM

      Hi there

      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.

      regards

    • Yoga in rishikesh

      by LozJ Online Now Jul 14, 2009 at 3:19 AM

      Hi there...

      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.

      Lauren.
