White water rafting is the most famous and popular sports in Rishikesh. Also, it is known for its sages and the river Ganga. Uttarakhand has many places where you can feel joy and happiness and explore nature. The Alaknanda and Bhagirathi are the main sources of Ganga and meet at Devprayag. The gurgling Ganges surrounded by the majestic Himalayas makes this thrilling activity more adventurous and exciting.
Rafting is relatively safe as you have safety jackets and helmets on. The raft instructors provide you with a series of commands that you need to follow in order to complete the entire adventure trip. A dip in the icy waters are a must after a rapid. The water rejuvenates you wiping off all the tiredness of rafting.
Ganges flows with aggression here, making sure that the revellers enjoy every bit of thrill they have thought of while planning their rafting trip. It is a very joyful and exciting experience when your raft crosses the rapid. Do not get scared of falling in the water, there will be enough safety equipment to ensure that you do not drown. If you are fond of roller coasters, we will bet you will come back here to experience rafting again and again.
The water is cold even during summers as melting glaciers are the source of water during the summers. Winters are very cold and the monsoon is breezy. At one point your raft will halt and be parked so you can walk and climb the cliff till you reach a height of 40 feet and then jump into the water. The most difficult part here is making the first jump and the second difficult task now becomes stopping you from jumping, this is known as cliff-jumping. The best part of this trip is when you are flowing in the river, going faster than the boat if your instructor does not row.
