Hello travellers,

32 y/o Malaysian born Chinese here, am doing 2 weeks solo trip in India and planned to see Rishikesh from 11-14 Aug 2019. From my research it seems that the nearest airport to fly in is DED and follow by a 40-50mins taxi ride to arrive in Rishikesh. Anyone who will be seeing Rishikesh at the same period of time. Would be more than happy to have companion for the taxi ride(s, to and fro if possible) if we are sharing same itinerary / travelling period. Looking forward to hearing from you guys. Cheers :)

Uber might be an alternative. In Kolkata, Uber was half the price of the standard taxi fare from the airport to the city - we used it both ways.

according to your details you will be stopping over at New Delhi before reaching Dehradun since Delhi is the only international airport closest to Rishikesh. it would be a viable option for you to first depart in Delhi then take a bus ride to Rishikesh which will take like 5 hours to reach. it would also cost you a lot less.
