Me and my wife just finished the 200ttc at Rishikul Yogshala in Rishikesh, and we couldn't be more grateful and happy we decided to end there after researching all the options. All the reviews about it are true. It definitely exceeded our expectations. Great teachers, very good ayurvedic food to keep up with the intensity of the practice, very nice people who made us feel at home from day 1. Im missing it already after a few days, considering coming back for the 300h :) Great set up as well, very quiet, amazing jungle views, apart from the hectic Laksmanjula. Very very complete!
