Join our Rafting and Camping Trip to Rishikesh on Good Friday Long Weekend 14th-16th April 2017

             Rishikesh has become a main centre of white water rafting in North India. River Rafting is riding  on the    torrential river on an inflatable rubber boat. It's an adventure sport best enjoyed with professional rafters  and trainers staying at a white sand beach next to the river. We will like to give you information here about various aspects of white water rafting and various camps being organised at Rishikesh for accommodation in  natural and serene surroundings.

'There is little doubt that whitewater rafting is thrilling. It is one of the few sports where a person with no experience whatsoever can pay someone to put them in an unbelievably intense encounter with Mother Nature'

Rafting is done mostly in imported rafts made of vulcanised rubber bodies reinforced by nylon fabric beneath an exterior of neoprene thus making it tough enough to withstand the battering it gets when it rams across the rocky boulders in the water. Rafting is done on rapids which is a white patch of foam on a flowing river caused by sudden gradient or by the river breadth getting constricted while flowing through a gorge between rocks or by a sudden increase or decrease in the volume of the water. Rapids are graded from 1 to 6 depending on the ease with which they can be negotiated, with 1 being the most easy. Rapids have been given interesting names like Golf Course, Three Blind Mice, Daniel's Dip, Sweet Sixteen, Marine Drive, Cross Fire and Roller Coaster.

Classification of rapids

Class 1: an easy, slow-moving current

Class 2: small waves

Class 3: rapids have medium waves with some technical maneuvers required

Class 4: rapids occur in a faster current, with bigger waves that are technical and scouting is sometimes recommended

Class 5: rapids have a very fast current, large waves and scouting is necessary

Class 6: rapids are virtually un-runnable, only attempted by professional racing teams

 

Other activities which can be done along with rafting at Rishikesh are body surfing, cliff jumping, kayaking beach volleyball, trekking, camping, rock climbing, rappelling etc.

Safety measures- Before going for rafting, you must ensure that you are doing it with a competent team who maintain all the safety standards like a qualified trainer, good rafts, crash helmets, life jackets and a medical backup in case of need. Also you must choose a well known operator who follows al safety precautions and not go just by the low rates offered by the fly by night local operators.
