Late winter night train from Haridwar Railway Station and availability of an auto from Tapovan, Rishikesh is not possible. Taxi the only option. I inquire during evening hours with taxi stand situated at Tapovan Sarai, Laxman Jhula Road, Rishikesh.
Yes, they said it is possible and was suggested to book a taxi in advance.
Ok â€“ said I. And how much the taxi fare?
Tapovan, Rishikesh to Haridwar Railway Station Taxi Fare â€“ Rs. 760.
Paid and received the receipt. Thank you very much â€“ said I.
At 10:30 pm taxi was ready. During the journey I inquire with the taxi driver â€“ is pickup also possible from Haridwar Railway Station if train arrival is late in the night or early morning.
Yes, said the taxi driver. One has to inform in advance via mobile/phone and one has to pay a little more.
Ok â€“ said I. Mostly auto the best option from Rishikesh to Haridwar Railway Station but as train was late in the night taxi the best and comfortable.
