Dear all

I am going with my family to Haridwar, Dehradun & Musoorie on 09/12/17 and returning on 16/12/17. I am giving below my travel programme that I have thought of :

09/12 : Reaching Jolly Grant at 13:50 hrs. & going to Haridwar by car direct from airport.Shall watch Gangarati. Anyplace else can we visit same day?

10/12 : Visit Hrishikesh + watch Gangarati at Haridwar - NH Haridwar

11/12 : Visit local sights & proceed for Dehradun by car. Do sightseeing whatever possible. NH Dehradun.

12/12 : Proceed for Musoorie by car. Loafing around the town for rest of the day. NH Musoorie.

13/12 : Local sightseeing, leisure time in the evening. NH Musoorie.

14/12 : Visit Dhanaulti, NH Musoorie.

15/12 : Leave for Dehradun, Sightseeing. NH Dehradun

16/12 : Catch flight from Jolly Grant for Kolkata.

Can anyone please correct / modify above schedule ?

Is it advisable to take a car at Dehradun airport on 09/12 and leave at Dehradun airport on 16/12 ? Or should I hire car as & when required ?

What could be the cost for a medium size car (like Indigo) for above tour if taken throughout the tour & also if taken as & when required ?

Regards.

The itinerary looks doable to me. I have no idea about the taxi rates though! I would book it on the need basis though.

09/12 - airport 2 pm, hotel 4 pm. Ganga arti at 5 30 pm (check - happens at sunset, which varies as per season). You can spend time on the ghat, visit the temples there, eat something on the ghat (chat) or in the market. (you would be missing out on the temples in Haridwar, as you have just one day in Haridwar - there is usually a rickshaw trip available for around 10-12 temples which lasts for around 10 hours or so)
10/12 - Rishikesh sightseeing - temples and jhula. You can have a boat ride near Ram jhula in the river. More adventurous activity like river rafting can also be done - will eat in your sight seeing.
Recommendation - do the ganga arti in Rishikesh at Triveni Ghat - way more organised, clean and the atmosphere is really nice there. Similar timing as the day prior and then leave for Haridwar.
11/12 - You could probably do the Haridwar temples here - but then that leaves almost no time for any sightseeing in Dehradun. There are quite a few things that you can see in dehradun - majorly museums and some other places as well.
12/12 - Some sightseeing in Dehradun and then Mussoorie.
13/12 - Mussoorie
14/12 - Dhanaulti
15/12 - Remaining Dehradun sightseeing
16/12 - Back.

You could visit Rajaji National Park at Haridwar if interested (though I am finding it difficult to find when)

Vehicle - required once you decide to leave Haridwar or from Dehradun when you want to do sightseeing and move to places like Mussoorie and Dhanaulti. So probably from 12th to 15th.
Sar Pass Trek , Rohtang, Munnar, Badrinath Kedarnath, Vaishnodevi, Goa
