RIVER RAFTING



For those fascinated by the unexplored, the mountain ranges of India offer breathtaking, enthralling trekking routes. In the vast amphitheatre of the Indian Himalayas and Karakorams, there are limitless possibilities for trekking, mountaineering, skiing, and river rafting. Within this alluring arena, the Uttarakhand and Himachal regions occupy the central place, with special points of interest for the trekker.

There is nothing like a good rafting experience in the rivers of the Himalaya , especially if you’re one of those who has a love for both great thrilling adventure, a sense of fun and an immense love for water. The Ganga at Rishikesh offers ample opportunities for rafting. It is possible here to organize a half day trip or a full day trip which involves a run of 26 Km and requires a minimum of only two people as there are groups covering this stretch almost every day. But if you are looking for some more quality time to spend on the river then we recommend you take the longer 36 Km stretch. However, this would require at least four people. The day rafting experiences are the easiest to handle and can be finished in a short period, so much so that you can jolly well be back in your homesthe next day or if luck may have ot the very same day as well- all that and you have had an amazing day adventure to add to your de-stressing activities as well. Especially recommended for those who follow a very rigorous and busy schedule and can only take out a day or two to live it out. A must for all kinds of people as these expeditions do not require much level of expertise and can be enjoyed by almost everyone as long as you pay attention to the brief given to you. So simply de-stress one of these weekend and come to Rishikesh and greet the Ganga with open arms. Some great grade III rapids are here to greet you!
