Preparation

We have made this trip as carefully as possible for you and have tried to make sure that you are missing nothing. However, there are things you need to arrange before departure. We would like to put it to you in a row.

Flight Tips:

Good booking sites are www.worldticketcenter.nl, www.cheaptickets.nl, www.vliegwinkel.nl. There are evening flights to Delhi with the United Emirates via Dubai. There are also daily direct flights with KLM and Jet Airways. In this case, you will depart around 11.00 hours and arrive in Delhi around 23.00 hours.

With most large European airlines such as Lufthansa and Swiss you also arrive at Delhi at midnight.

The best is to arrive a day in advance so that you can depart from Delhi the next day by train from 6.00 am. This train must be reserving. However, you can also choose our extra option Getting to and from Delhi

If you wish, we can book an extra night for you when you return to Delhi before your flight leaves (if you do not choose our Additional option Transportation to and from Delhi).
Cost: €30,-.

Transfer is possible from Delhi airport to your hotel in the city. When booking, indicate that you want to use this option?

 
 

Visa:

If you stay less than 30 days in India, you can arrange your visa online via the website e-visums.nl/india. If you experience any administrative problems with the visa application, please ask us for a confirmation letter.
Clothing: The temperature in Rishikesh is between 25-30 degrees Celsius. In the evenings it is about 15-20 degrees. A nice warm vest is therefore advisable.
Also think of good footwear and comfortable clothes for walks in the woods.
The dress code in India requires that you cover your shoulders and do not wear tight leggings or tops. A scarf is useful when you visit a temple. You can wrap it around you. Long trousers and long sleeves are also enough.

Vaccinations against malaria or other diseases are not in principle necessary. But you can always consult with your GP. On the other hand, an anti-mosquito milk or spray is recommended.
