Thrills of River Rafting in Rishikesh

  1. 1. Experience the Thrills of River Rafting in Rishikesh Rishikesh is more than meets the eye. It is not just a land of divinity, ashrams, white sands and blue waters. The beautiful and holy Ganges flows through the city but also holds maximum scope for adventure sports; whitewater rafting to begin with. The city is visited by distinct categories of people since it appeals to both the spiritual and the adventurous lot. If you are on an adventurous holiday and think Rishikesh is not the destination for it; you are mistaken. Visit the city and explore the waters to bring out the adventurous side of you. River rafting in Rishikesh is a must-try if you haven’t. And live those moments. Rafting Camp in Rishikesh There are many camp sites to choose from if you want to go on a river rafting vacation in Rishikesh. But one of most popular and sought after camp sites is on Vyas ghat. Located 88kms from Rishikesh, the camp site is a mere 2 hours drive from the city set by the banks of the serene Ganga. This a white sandy beach lined by steep mountains on one side and lush green forests on both. The waters here look pristine and calm for whitewater rafting but what follows after is for the adventurous person in you. Even if river rafting is not meant for you, you can walk by the beautiful and clean waters or angle around for there are plenty of fishes to swing by.
  2. 2. Things to Consider on a Rafting Vacation But when you are at Rishikesh, you might as well tickle the adventure bone in you. River rafting in Rishikesh begins from Devprayag to the city with adequate breaks because rafting in the strong waters is bound to exhaust you. Also, safety is of paramount importance and hence it is vital that you go on a guided tour with professionals that have been in the business for long. You do not just need rafting experts but also professionals who know the water well. In river rafting, there are rapids and not all are suitable for ones who haven’t rafted before or are amateurs in the sport. Therefore, great cognizance of the waters and the season, triply checked rafting equipments and complete understanding of what must and must not be done are very important. Careless attitude and absence of professionals can prove fatal for whitewater rafting. Rafting holidays are usually not a one-day affair. They are spread over two or three days at least so that you can cover the entire stretch without feeling tired, worn out or exhausted. The campsites are safe places to be where tents become your accommodation. A typical camp experience is thrilling and the sight and sound of clear and sparkling water is enticing and appealing to your senses. Food at the camp is always special. Food is usually served buffet style; hot and fresh and refreshing after a day’s work in the waters. So, make your next holidays special with river rafting in Rishikesh.
