River Rafting Adventure, Rishikesh (Uttarakhand)

Best river rafting in Rishikesh can be experienced between the months of September and November. Rainy season is the time when you should avoid going for river rafting Rishikesh. Overall, late September through May is considered the ideal river rafting in Rishikesh season. Rafting charges in Rishikesh begin from as low as INR 600 per person and can go up to INR 3000. The town of Shivpuri, about 30 minutes from Rishikesh, is the best spot to go for white river rafting in Rishikesh.

Tourists avoid the monsoon season for river rafting because it is dangerous. Also, the operators will not be available during this time because of security reasons. The good news is that you do not have to be an expert to perform the adventure sport. You will be given instructions beforehand and the activities are performed under the supervision of experts. The experts ensure that everything proceeds smoothly and there are no mishaps during the activity. Tourists come from different parts of the world to try the river rafting adventure sport in Rishikesh. It does not burn a hole in your pocket.

River Water Grade

The white water rafting in Rishikesh is the best in the entire country and it will surely give you some thrills and chills of the adventure. The rafting in Rishikesh is classified in five river water grades(rapids).

Grade I: Grade I rapids are the easiest among all and are preferable for beginners as no amount of skill set is required in it. This grade can also be done by the non-swimmers.

Grade II: These rapids are slightly difficult and rougher than the grade I rapids and are usually found in the areas where river flows through the rocky trails. Prior experience in river rafting is required for this type of grade.

Grade III: This is where the white river rafting starts. This type of grade is found at places where the river flows with great speed and passes through rough rocks. This type of rafting grade needs supervision of the guide and a great amount of skills.

Grade IV: With grade IV rafting comes great challenges and also fun. Compared to other three grades, this grade is challenging and feary at the same time.

Grade V: This grade of rafting is only recommended to people with great skills and experience of rafting. These grades pass through extremely rocky terrains and should be done only under expert supervision.

River Rafting Safety and Security

Since the activity is performed on River Ganga, you will get a chance to do body surfing with your life jackets on. River Rafting Rishikesh is one of the most exciting activities that you should not miss. You can opt for the longest stretch for an enjoyable and thrilling experience. Choose the Shivpuri or Marine Drive spot to start the rafting trip. It covers a longer distance and you will enjoy it more than the shorter stretch which covers 9 kilometers. The shorter stretch is ideal for families or beginners, who are afraid of water. You can either book the rafting tour through an operator or your hotel will be able to make the bookings for you. Most hotels have tie-ups with river rafting operators. You can also call up the operators by acquiring their number from their official website. Always choose a good operator and check their ratings online. Non-swimmers can do this activity with ease because you will have your life jackets on. Listen to the instructions carefully and hold the paddle properly. Due to heavy rainfall, river rafting in Rishikesh in August is closed for everyone.

You can go for the camping packages that include accommodation, meals, river rafting activity, bonfire, and cliff jumping. Rishikesh river rafting is fun and should not be missed. If you are looking for a safe adventure activity, you should opt for river rafting in Rishikesh.

    Traveller's 3 days trip to Rishikesh

    Trip was good but very poorly managed by Travel agent. He changed the described cottage stay at last moment to a lower one - increasing his overall profits. Driver was not finalized till 10:00 pm one day before. Provided hotel vouchers after repeated follow ups. During the entire booking process he
    was trying to extract more and more money. Speaks too much but delivery is not up the mark. Friendly cottage staff
