A good place to spend time with friends

A tour to haridwar is very adventurous with friends. Take a shortcut and various masti in water, tea of Roorkee, riding a bike at 120 km/hour and overtake a vehicle much interested in highways. Fully enjoyed and fully charged at night and early morning the day starts with refreshing mind.
