Patanjali International Yoga Foundation {PIYF} Rishikesh is situated at bank of the holy Ganga River, in the town of Rishikesh in the lap of great Himalaya Mountains. Rishikesh is well known as the capital of Yoga. It is a very safe and secure place, where national and international tourists can walk alone or in groups without any fear. Rishikesh is a ‘dry’ area, where it is not allowed to serve alcohol or any kind of meat-fish or animal form. However, Rishikesh has all modern facilities such as transportation, Wi-Fi, etc.


The nearest international airport is New-Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport. For those who choose to continue their way by air, there are currently domestic flights to nearby Dehradun Jolly Grant Airport, operated by Air India, Jet Airways and Spicejet . From there it is less than 45minute drive by taxi to PIYF.

Please note that the best way to leave the Delhi airport is by the Delhi Traffic Police Pre-Paid Taxi Service which is located on the left side right after you pass Customs on the way out to the Arrivals Hall.


Rishikesh has got a train station, but is currently serviced by only one train. It may not be very useful for most travelers. The best option is to reach first Haridwar station, which is about 30minutes away from Rishikesh, and then continue by road. Haridwar is serviced by many trains from/to Delhi, Varanasi, Rajasthan, Amritsar, etc. From Delhi, the train ride takes mostly between 5 and 7 hours


Buses to Rishikesh leave New-Delhi from the Kashmiri Gate National Bus Stand approximately every hour. The bus ride takes about 7-9 hours.

By Taxi

Taxis are widely available anywhere in India. The drive from/to Delhi should 5 to 6 hours, depending on traffic conditions. From Haridwar the drive takes about 40 minutes. Should our students require, and upon advance notice, we can arrange for all sorts of transportation, with no additional fees or commissions on top of the normal charges.
