Amidst the lockdown, people are unable to travel to their listed down favourite places. In this second wave of Pandemic has killed many lives. Life has become so unpredictable now that we are uncertain if we can ever see tomorrow.
As like others, I was too locked up in my rented apartment in Noida. So, on one fine day I made up my mind to travel to nearest hill station i.e Rishikesh. In this vlog I am going to mention how I managed to travel safely to a less crowded tourist place during Pandemic.
There are many travel guidelines in order to cross state borders. So we had to arrange two important reports-
1. E-pass( you can go to Welcome to e-Pass UP site)
2. RT-PCR negative report
However, during emergency you can get this both done in the border i.e RAT(Rapid Antigen Test) but I would definitely suggest you to carry both beforehand so that it is hazzle-free and avoid the long queue for Swab collection.
HOW DID WE TRAVEL-
We have booked our cab from MERU CABS. There services are really good. Normally they charge at a cost of 12rs pr km and therefore we had to pay approx rs3000 including toll tax and state border tax.
Also, pre book your hotels on different sites available online like Booking.com, Goibibo, Airbnb. I can definitely recommend you the one we stayed in- HILLTOP SWISS COTTAGE which is located in Tapovan. In the same area, there are many guest houses and hostels. But, for better safety we choosed to stay in a private Deluxe room with awesome services. They also provide you meals but charges are not included with stay. This hotel is both available on Booking.com and GoIbibo.
Below are some photos taken from our resort.
