There are two main routes to reach Rishyap. If you are travelling from the plain side, you would do better to travel to Gorubathan (in Dooars) and from here take the uphill road reaching Lava. From Lava to Rishyap is 4 km by foot but about 9 km through the main road. If you are travelling from NJP or Bagdogra, this will be an easier way to travel with a total travel distance of about 110 km.
If you are travelling via hill stations such as Darjeeling or Sikkim, you would first have to come to Kalimpong and then take the Kalimpong lava road. Take a diversion of about 7 km before reaching Lava and a 2 km unpaved hill road from here will take you to Rishyap
