Rishikesh, the holy city on the banks of river Ganges, in the foothills of Himalaya, the northern boundary of India, beckons all peace-loving as well as sports-loving people alike. You cannot find a place of peace and serenity, to practice Yoga for complete health care of your mind and body, better than this. In the same breathe, it also offers abundant opportunities for adventure travel, and white water rafting of thrill and fun on the Ganges River.

Just think – we are living in a world of metropolitan cities filled with noise, air pollution, hectic activities and choking traffic everywhere. The itch to get away from all these and spend your time calmly in the laps of Nature is irresistible. That’s why people fly to such places, here Mother Nature has everything contrast to the city-life, taking a spell of holidays or vacation.

Rishikesh is undoubtedly one such place, where you can enjoy living with Nature. Forget that it is a holy city of temples for Hindus, one that they consider for a life-time pilgrimage, to worship Lord Vishnu. Once visiting this place, they can easily embark on travel to similar other places like Haridwar, Manasa Gangotri, Ram Jula, Lakshman Jula etc.

You will be amazed to know how Rishikesh has been developed into a tourist-paradise in the recent years. The Great Himalayan Mountains with snow-clad peaks, as well as crystal-clear water of River Ganges flowing from it, offer a lot of scope for indulging in camp-life inside tents, trekking, walking, rafting and just lying idle and bathing in the Sun all day long.

Your life-style will be a completely changed one. You can live in first-class Swiss-make tents, erected all over the place – away from the city of Rishikesh – and yet avail all the modern facilities. Camp-fire during nights, lanterns and bamboo chairs, scenic beauty – all these will take you to a world of totally different medieval style.

Particularly for white water rafting, Rishikesh has become most popular world-wide. While providing the same thrill and excitement, rafting will not be that dangerous and hazardous, as in the case of rivers in Africa, Sweden or USA. The reason is rafting is facilitated in the River Ganges, which is flowing along the rocks very smoothly.

You only need basic level paddling experience, to enjoy rafting here. Completely safe rapids are provided for your use and you have very wide choices to choose from, in respect of rafting distances – long or short.
