Short Duration Rafting at Rishikesh

Small but fun #rafting trips are divided by the time and distance. Te smallest possible trip is 3 hours and the longest may take 5 hours or 36 km. Alternatively a 16 km trip is also undertaken. AS we go to the start point by driving, we take a small training session and after a meal (if included) start the rafting. As we always have experts to supervise, anyone can attempt these rafting sessions. The cost varies with regards to the duration of the trip and the size of your group.

3 Days Rafting Expedition: From Dev Prayag to #Rishikesh
.Lasting for 3 whole days, this expedition starts at Dev Prayang and continues for three days to Rishikesh

DAY 1: Getting to know the River
As we drive to the starting place called Bhagwan near Dev Prayag, we meet the supervising instructors and the team who trains us and makes the necessary preparations. Starting with easy rapids, this is not very demanding. We spend a lot of time just knowing the river while we look at some wildlife or maybe have a swim. Night at #beach #camp.

DAY 2: Journey over #Waters.
On the second day we cover about 30 more kms including rest and meal stops, Again today is an easy time as we try our hand at a few rapids, but mostly pass through Wjungles with dense greenery and enjoy the sights of some village or Wwildlife. Night fall can be in a rest house or camp.

DAY 3: White waters
Going for some serious business, today we negotiate big and nice rapids. You will love their names. They are called Three blind mice, Cross fire, Daiel dip, Roller coaster , Golf course, Body surfing and the like. You will require immense concentration, body work and team spirit to crack these. The end is in downstream Rishikesh with a satisfying meal.

#Kayaking at Rishikesh
There is not much difference between the just mentioned rafting and actual kayaking, except that you are not allowed to rent a kayak unless you pass the test. These rules are quite stringent, and each guest or group of guests are tested to see if they are comfortable handling the boat and their own selves. A guide will always accompany you. The good part is that a 4 day kayaking trip can be customized to suit your needs,
