"No need of advance reservation if you travel in a non AC bus"

Delhi to Rishikesh, every 10 minutes bus will depart. No need to do reservation, but if you want to travel by AC bus then you need reservation and specially in weekends. Roadways bus is better than private bus in regards to safety. Delhi to Rishikesh is hardly 6 hours travel. If you travel with your friends then you will enjoy more and this journey will always be remembered as we travelled with friends.

"Journey by car makes tour very special"

Journey by car made our tour so much special and selective. We enjoyed all the places by stopping car at several stops to have lunch, drinks, dinner, and greenery. The best time for journey on this route is morning because traffic will not bother you in the morning. In between there is lot of hotels and restaurants. And Travel costs from new Delhi to Rishikesh was 700 rupees by car. Tourists visited to Rishikesh must visit Haridwar, Meerut Church, IIT Roorkee, Patanjali Ashram etc. People should carry with them some Sandals, Track suits and warm clothes.

It was a nice drive as the weather was not hot. 2nd last day of September month, pleasant drive. We drove with just 1 stop halt for lunch at a restaurant. It took us around 6 hours, we had left early morning by 6.30 from Delhi not driving very fast reached in the afternoon. There is Ganga Tours and Travels in Rishikesh who organized the driver and car for us. Mr Ashish of Ma Ganga was very very helpful.

It was great fun travelling by our own car. The main food junction to stop are Cheetal and KFC situated on the highway, also for the CNG cars there is a CNG Station in Meerut which is the last station in this route. Some crowded place are Moradabad and Muzaffarnagar, roads are not good because of the construction on the highways.

"Single road from Roorkee to Rishikesh can be challenging for new drivers"

6/7
Posted 17 Dec

Travelled by: Car

Travelled as: Group

The drive from New Delhi to Rishikesh is bit tiring as one needs to cross some congested towns and some times it takes few hours extra. The only relief is MuzaffarNagar bypass which offers 70 km of un-interrupted drive. The stretch between Roorkee and Rishikesh is single road and can be challenging for new drivers.

Sorry, we could not find preference of Travellers for this route.
