Booking Train tickets to RUCHI from DELHI

The website is www.irctc.co.in
You can travel on whichever train you like as long as

You travel on the same train if other volunteers are arriving on the same day as you
You don’t take a train later than the 5.25pm from Delhi
Please contact RUCHI if you have any trouble with booking or understanding the website. You can book tickets once you are in India but in busy months you may not get a seat and RUCHI needs to be informed early of your train schedule. The phone lines at RUCHI can be down for days so the earlier you know your arrival time, the easier your pick up at Kalka will be.
