A note from our CEO, Akshay Kumar:

Dear Guest,

I’ve driven up to Rishikesh on more than two occasions in the last few weeks, and I think it is important for all our guests to understand the process at the various check points and expect some waiting time. As long as you have your paperwork in place, you should be fine. Here’s what I recommend:

  • Take a printout of your registration pass – that is your ticket so keep it handy. There’s no need to make copies. No one asks you to hand it over - you just need to stretch your hands over the barricade so they can read it.
  • Keep your Covid-19 negative certificate handy. Two copies so you can hand them over where required and not have to take them back – avoiding surface transmission.
  • Take a printout of your hotel bookings and make two copies.
  • Make one sheet that contains the details of everyone travelling with the following details:
    • Your vehicle number right on top.
    • Names of all travellers, their ages, father’s/husband’s name and respective ID nos., yes even for the kids (unless they are infants).
    • Make at least three copies so you can hand them over where needed (not to be taken back, to protect yourself from surface infection).
  • Copies of your hotel booking – two copies. They may or may not ask for you to hand them over, but better to be prepared.
  • I recommend you catch the main highway and not take the diversion via Deoband. Cars driving up from Delhi are being stopped at the Deoband check post and you may have to back-track by 45 min if the Police at the check post do not allow you to pass through.
  • Leave early – I left at 4 AM. Even then I reached at 11:30 AM. Took me around 2 hours at the various check points put together.
  • Carry food and water with you – all restaurants on the way are shut so you will get nothing to eat. No loo points either – the forest or farmland will have to do! Keep a bottle of hand sanitizer in your car.
  • Last but not the least – this is a much awaited break! So be patient, don’t lose your cool with the bureaucracy at work. The people manning the check points – health authorities, Police and civilians are merely doing their job. It’s hot, and often noisy. But soon you will be at Bull’s Retreat and within a few minutes of getting here, you will forget all the hoops you had to jump through to get there!!

Look forward to seeing you at Bull’s Retreat!
