Rishikesh is located at a comfortable travel distance of 258 km from Delhi. With a recent addition of a new bypass, travel by road has become that much easier. You can either hire a car, or take the morning Shatabdi Express train to Haridwar. From there Rishikesh is just 20 kms, and plenty of local cars and jeeps are available to ferry tourists and pilgrims between the two holy places.
