Adventurous rapids

River rafting in the pristine waters of Ganges had been on my bucket list for a long time! I ditched the opportunity of rafting in River Beas in Kullu in 2015, and am glad that I did so as I enjoyed hell lot rafting in the Ganges. I also got to know that the rapids in river beas are not as good as the one here.Did the 16 km stretch from Shivpuri to Ram Jhoola with 5-6 rapids with the best one being the Roller coaster and Golf Course. It easily takes 2-3 hours to cover the whole stretch which leaves you exhausted and tired.Even jumped in the river and had a nice time swimming and flowing along with the flow.Definitely one of the best experiences and this has inspired me to do rafting in other places such as Zanskar and Brahmaputra as well.

Extremely adventurous river rafting

This is the place really worth investing time in Rishikesh, I visited this place in May. They would charge you 400 for 16 km of river rafting, they would take you to the mountain top in their car and a trainer would stay with you for your safety. Do visit, river rafting is closed in monsoons so do check the schedule.

Great view and enjoyment

It is just few days ago, my best friends and me planned to go Rishikesh. On the way we just loved the big rock mountain, looks green from far. We lived there in a tent. It was great view near shore of Maa Ganga. We did river rafting with so much courage and fun. It was just Amazing to be there. Great trip great greenery.

A refreshing break

Best place to be in summer. As it is hot in Delhi trip to this place in summer refreshes your body and mind. River rafting is a lot of fun. It is economical also. Around 2000 per person, this includes stay in tent for one full day and one night Dinner, breakfast and lunch included. Games also can be played like volleyball cricket. Tent conditions are well maintained. Best place to visit.
