A popular place for River Rafting

Kaudiyala near Rishikesh is popular for River Rafting. This place is also known as the White Water Rafting area in India, this rafting is dangerous when you are not following the rules, otherwise enjoyable.

A must Adventure trip

River rafting was the best part of my trip. Thanks to someone who drove us through 9 high tides. The place can be made more safe to attract tourists both locals and foreign. The raft managers / owner always tries to fool tourists, even if you have booked in advance.

Hot spot for long rafting

Kaudiyala is a hot spot for long rafting. There are few restaurants around the area. You can stroll by the Ganges to relax, but don't try to swim, it can be risky. You can also go to Devprayag, which is the influence of Bhagirathi and Alaknanda rivers, at a distance of 25 km from Kaudiyala.
