RIVER RAFTING IN RISHIKESH FROM DELHI
Rafting is one of the most Adventurous outdoor recreational activities where you run over water or rivers in rafts which is an inflated boat (Boat which has to be filled with air or gas). Paddling joyously, wearing recommended life jackets, wet suits or dry suits and helmets under the guidance of experts is a game which is enjoyed by people from all age group. The splash of river water teases you and you just love that touch of water.
Being one of the top ten places for Rafting, India hosts the most adventurous water sport especially in the Himalayan state of Uttarakhand from where the holiest river Ganga rises. Rishikesh being the Yoga Capital of India is the top Rafting spot. The several rocks in the riverbeds of Ganga and its tributaries form rapids (the steep slope or a part of the river where the speed of the current is very high) with increasing pressure resulting in the formation of bubbles by the entrance of air and finally giving the water a white complexion. Thus Rishikesh is said to be famous for white-water rafting which is adventurous, fun-filled, adrenaline pumping and a must do activity. Rafting along with camping is icing on the cake. Rishikesh hosts five grades of Rafting on the basis of rapids. Grad I and II are very easy and you can do it even if you don’t know how to swim. For Grade III to V, you must learn swimming and they are quite risky but very fun loving activity for adventurous people.
