It appears this is never a popular suggestion - fly! Fly Bangalore to Delhi, Delhi to Dehra Dun, and then pre-paid taxi to Rishikesh.

Safe - obviously
Cheap - that's relative, but around US$350
Quick - pick the right flight connection and you'll be in Dehra Dun in five hours. I forget how long the road trip is - not long.

DrRudi is right but not cheap.
Cheapest way is by train. Catch any train for New Delhi and then for haridwar. Take bus or taxi or shared auto for Rishikesh.

Neearj i am agree with you. Train would be ovious choice for cheap traveling. catch a train from Bangalore viz karnataka exp, sampark karanti exp, Rajdhani exp, Duranto exp, get down at New delhi Stn.
Board janshatabdi exp at 15:00 reach haridwar at 19:30 hire a taxy or bus to reach Rishikesh it would take 30-45 min to reach rishikesh from haridwar.

Bangalore, but always thinking of Himalayas...

If you have time, train is the safest and cheapest way of travelling.
You can also take shared auto from Haridwar to Rishikesh / bus or taxi.

When do you intend to travel. If you wish to travel in next one month flight is the only possibility and it will be expensive trip. you can also try to book train tickets in tatkal.

I am travelling to Rishikesh in next 2 weeks.

Bangalore to Delhi by Rajdhani express,
Delhi to Haridwar by Shatabdi express
Haridwar to Rishikesh by passenger train.

flight charges are double the Train fare.
