You also have the option of taking the Dehradun Shatabdi.May will be season time in Mussoorie and hotels will hike their rates.Between Rishikesh and Haridwar you can stay at the same place for 02 nights as the distance between both is hardly 20 kms.

Thank you friends for your valuable suggestions... Considering that, I have finalised my trip as follows...

9 th May 2011....evening From Mumbai to Delhi..by Rajdhani

10 th ....at Delhi. .. at night proceed to Dehradun by DDN AC Exp

16 & 17th at Haridwar - Rishikesh... In evening by Shatabdi to Delhi

18 th after reaching Delhi... in evening proceed to Mumbai by Rajdhani

19 th Morning will reach to Mumbai.

As per the plan I have done my train reservations.

But I am confused about Hotel bookings... Lot of questions in my mind..

1) Should I book hotel rooms in advance? or will get after reaching there?

2) I had asked for quotes... For Valley view hotel, mussoori ... they quoted 1650 for super deluxe room... Are the quotes negotiable?

Two childrens with me of 11 & 15 age... will they counted in extra persons?

3) Pl suggest me hotel near New Delhi Rly Stn..also at Dehradun & Haridwar.. Rishikesh or Haridwar where to stay ?

4) Two options .. Mussoorie - Dehradun - Haridwar or

Haridwar - Rishikesh - Dehradun - Mussoorie

Which is better...?

Pratik,

Since you are going there during summer vacation, you are being advised to book the hotels in advance.

You can always bargain with the hotel for rates. The kids will be counted as extra person, although, you can request the hotel to waive the extra bed charges for the younger one.

The following hotels are being suggested. N.Delhi = Ginger, Rishikesh = Sisamjhari Ganga Resort (GMVN), Hardwar = Hotel Alakananda

As you are planning to stay at Dehradu and Mussouri, it would be convenient to do Mussouri-Dehradun-Rishikesh-Hardwar.

Thank you very much..!

I tried for booking of hotel Ginger ... but it shows no room available..

What say about Ajay guest house / Anoop Hotel ? or any other better option near New Delhi Rly Stn...

Hotel Alaknanda seems good but it is out of budget...

For Delhi you can try for hotels near Karol Bagh, though its a few kilometres from the New Delhi railway station, but its safe place specially for the tourists with family.

Hotel Alakanda has different options of rooms. You can ask them over phone.

You can skip Dehradun and reduce the itinerary by 1 day. As far as sightseeing is concern, there is nothing much in Dehradun, except Sahasradhra (sort of waterfall), which can be seen on the way to Mussouri.
