River Rafting Rishikesh [rRr]

Rishikesh is located in the laps of lower Himalayas, and is surrounded by picturesque beauty of the hills on three sides with Holy Ganga flowing through it. The whole place is considered to be sacred as it is believed that meditation at this place leads to realization of salvation.

There are many temples-some ancient, some new along the river Ganges. Rishikesh is a home for many important centres of Hindu religious thought and spirituality, and as a very great Yoga Centre. Rishikesh has a great significance as a centre for white water River Rafting, other adventure sports, a base for treks and hikes in the stunning Himalayan Treks.

Rishikesh has now become a main centre of white water rafting in North India. River Rafting is riding on the fast flowing river, near foothills, on an inflatable rubber boat (imported rafts made of vulcanized rubber bodies reinforced by nylon fabric beneath thus making it tough enough to take the battering). It’s an adventure sport, best enjoyed with professional rafters and trainers, staying at a white sand beach next to the river.
