The gateway to the Himalayas, Rishikesh is the main center for whitewater rafting on River Ganges. Through the paddles, adventurers get to cross the rapids and gushing flow of mighty Ganges and emerge exhilarated as a winner. Overnight camping and dinner along the banks of the spiritual river also add on to the natureâ€™s best kept experience. All this and much more comprise the white river rafting experience by India budget tours.
Upon arrival in Rishikesh, drive towards camp for an orientation and lunch. Post lunch; begin a raft trip from camp to Rishikesh on River Ganges. The River Ganges rafting on the gateway to Himalayas trails through some of the most exciting rapids named as Return to Sender, Roller Coaster, Golf Course, Club House, Initiation, Double Trouble & Terminator. Each one of them is a challenge in itself with high powerful waves of the Ganges gushing towards you. How you can emerge as a winner truly depends upon how swiftly you paddle; let the adrenaline rush over the spirit and continue hand glade motion in unison with fellow rafters. The scenery around the foothills of Himalayas also provides a great backdrop for river rafting holiday in India.
