Was wondering how cold it gets in Delhi and Rishikesh in December and January. Should I go south instead to do some yoga? - Bangalore?

Winter in Rishikesh

Been to Rishikesh 3 times in the winter months. The weather is generally sunny and warm during the day- maximum low to mid 20'sC, falling to about 10-15C at night. So, say t-shirt during the day and sweater or fleece in the evenings. I live on the south coast of UK though so it may feel cooler to you.

It's a quiet place with nice views along the Ganges where it flows out of the hills. Pretty unspoiled jungles just behind Swarg Ashram but watch out for wild elephants that sometimes stray there from Rajiji NP.

Most of the ashrams for yoga study are on the Swarg Ashram (east) side of the river. It's almost traffic free, well apart from motor-bikes. A few good eating places too. If you go try Chotiwallah's just near the Ramjhula bridge.
