Shivpuri is known for its temple as well as the wide variety of options it provides in adventure sports.

HolidayIQ Traveller Kapil says,"The village itself was not worth visiting but if you want to do river rafting you have to go there. I must say it was paisa - vasool activity. It was full of adventure and the view that you would get was amazing. There was a point where we did cliff jumping and the height was around 18 feet."

4. Stunning View From Ram Jhula

But the place is quite messy and the govt and tourist dept has to take care to keep such a place wonderful and it is such a beauty to watch the dias floating during the aarti."

HolidayIQ Traveller Bharat says, "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."
