The landscape of Rishikesh makes it one of the best white-water rafting sites in the world. The gushing waters and manageable currents make river rafting a heart-throbbing experience. The trained instructors and professional coaches undertake the most stringent safety precautions to avoid any unwanted mishaps and to facilitate an enjoyable time. They are well-trained to help deal with amateurs and experienced rafters.
River rafting goes on for a good 3-4 hours starting at about 15-20kms upstream and converging at Rishikesh. The rapids include short-run, mid-run and long-run rapids of Grade II and Grade III.
Although rafting is the highlight of Rishikesh, the place offers many other activities like camping around the bonfire, barbeques on the chilly nights, romantic dinners under the moonlit sky and much more.
