About Rishikesh: Rishikesh is a small town by the foothills of Garhwal Himalayas, where the river Ganges meets the plains. A pilgrimage center of the Hindus, it has a good number of temples, ashrams and yoga centers. Rishikesh is a popular destination amongst foreigners and often referred to as the “yoga capital of the world”. Rishikesh caught the world’s imagination with the Beatles visit in the 60s. This sleepy town woke up to find itself as the epicenter of the universe and the crowd was flowing in. Amongst those were adventure enthusiasts who decided to test their nerves by River Rafting in the Ganges. The word spread out in the professional rafters community abroad and soon a steady trickle of tourists started coming in to experience the thrill of River Rafting in Rishikesh. The foreigners used to pitch their camps at the secluded beautiful beaches formed by the river side. In the 80s, a few local entrepreneurs decided to offer camping accommodation and added various facilities to make the stay convenient and comfortable. A few thrill seekers from local cities discovered these beach camps and the rest is history.

River Rafting Season: October till June. Even though world over River Rafting is considered a winter sport, here in India people prefer the summers to crash into the rapids. October till Mid November , and March till June is the high season. The low season is the winter season – from Mid November till February. The weekends are pretty much booked in advance in peak season, but weekdays are always available to those who prefer peace and quiet. The services are always better during weekdays as the volume is low.

Rapids: Rapids or white water is called so due to the movement of water over the underlying rocks and depends on the river volume and rock size. The rapids are ranked on the scale of 1 to 5 depending on difficulty level. While a grade 1 rapid is something you won’t bother about, a grade 4 rapid has enough force to flip the raft. Thankfully, there is minimal risk at Rishikesh as most rapids are less than 3. The only one ranked at 4 is “The Wall” and it is at Kaundiyala, some 35 Kms beyond rishikesh.

The names of the rapids are really interesting – there’s 3 Blind Mice, Sweet Sixteen, Black Money, Back to Sender, Golf Course, Roller Coaster and Cross Fire. From Marine Drive till Rishikesh as you raft downstream you will come across 12 rapids which are thrilling yet perfectly safe. The camps  provide rafting gear, protective cap, paddle and life jacket that keeps you safe and floating, no matter even if you don’t know swimming. There is a short Safety Training session prior to the trip to let all understand the rafting guide’s commands and emergency procedures – just in case.
