Thank you for your interest in Room to Read’s Trek to Uttarakhand, India in November 2017! This trek will be an opportunity to get active and travel with Room to Read Co-founders John Wood, Dinesh Shrestha and Erin Ganju, to commemorate reaching 50,000 girls through the Girls' Education Program. During this trek, you will have a chance to learn from our leadership about the incredible impact you've helped us achieve, and to celebrate this exciting milestone.

To reach Dehradun we recommend flying from Delhi or Mumbai directly to Dehradun's domestic airport, also known as the Jolly Grant Airport (airport code: DED). The airport is located 20 km away from the city center. Private airport transfers to the hotel are included with your trek package.

Please note that there are multiple, daily non-stop flights from Delhi (DEL) to Dehradun (DED) via Jet Airways, Spice Jet, and Air India. There is also a once daily, non-stop flight from Mumbai (BOM) to Dehradun (DED) via Jet Airways. Of these three airlines, Jet Airways, we recommend Jet Airways, for comfort, reliability and service. 

Alternative modes of transportation to Dehradun include train, bus and car. For more information about getting to Dehradun, please visit this helpful website.
