Located in Uttarakhand, Rishikesh is a popular tourist destination because of its beautiful scenery. The place is also very popular among Hindus because of many Hindu pilgrimage sites in the city. The free flowing rivers and the high mountains form the major attraction of the place. So you get two-in-one benefit on visiting the city. It is considered as one of the best place for people looking forward to have loads of adventure, fun and relaxation.

River rafting is one of the most popular sports of Rishikesh because of several free flowing rivers falling from high Himalayan altitudes. Canoeing, trekking and rock climbing are some of the other adventurous sport that a tourist can try. River rafting is supposed to be one of the best stress busters. The beautiful environment will relax your body and soul to give a heavenly experience. In fact river rafting is so popular in Rishikesh that your trip is not complete unless you have tasted the river. Some people are so amazed by the experience that they love to go for rafting again and again. It is also an invaluable experience for nature lovers. The sound of the water hitting your raft and moving it in various directions is full of adventure and is bound to raise your hormone level.

However it might be a challenging task for people who will be doing it for the first time. Keeping such people in mind, the organizers at Rishikesh have several levels of rafting from the beginners level to the toughest level meant for expert rafters. The grade-1 level of rafting will only give you the thrill of rafting and is meant for people who are doing it for the first time or for weak hearted people. However if you are familiar with rafting and have tried it once or twice, you can opt for grade-2 level rafting. Grade-3 and above levels are meant for rafters who are very much familiar with the process and do it quite often. The highest level of rafting is supposed to be roller coaster ride which is also the toughest level.

If the above description of river rafting has already amazed you a lot, we recommend you to try it at least once. You can go for rafting in all the months except for very chilly months and monsoon. September to December and from mid February to June is considered to be the best time for rafting. This is the time when the rivers are in full swing and you can explore the environment too. You also do not have to worry about safety while rafting as the rafting organizers pay a lot of attention on the customer's safety. The rafting camps are well equipped with modern facilities and ensure safety. You can get in contact with such organizers either after reaching the city or before on internet. However you should be very careful before choosing your organizer as an inexperienced one may cause inconvenience. Rishikesh is well connected from almost all the major cities of India!
