Rafting is a sport that is not only tailor-made for adults. It can also be enjoyed by kids and families. There are experts available to render your experience even more fun-filled.
Spectacles to behold
The prime reason why you should choose Rishikesh as your preferred getaway destination is because of the scenic beauty that it envelopes in its territory. The River Ganga originates from the Gangotri glacier, meandering its way through the mountainous passage. The river falls with a thud with water gushing out through the Ganga Gorge. This adds more fuel to your water sport adventure. The huge current emanating from Rishikesh has less depth leading to formation of Rapids. These rapids created form the best part of the rafting adventure.
The stretch of the Ganga all the way from Kaudiyala to Rishikesh spans over a distance of 36 kilometers, harbouring 13 rapids along the course of this stretch. The expanse is thereby divided into four grades namely- Grade I, II, III and IV according to the level of difficulty. Some popular grades in the rafting capital include Sweet Sixteen (Grade I), Cross Fire (Grade III), Golf Course (IV) etc.
