How to reach spots for river rafting in Rishikesh

River Rafting is an outdoor adventure activity which requires you to be patient and a good listener. You have to be a good listener because you would need to follow the instructions of the guide. You need to hold the paddle correctly and you have to sit in the right posture. It requires preparation before you go for the activity. This is a safe activity for non-swimmers because you will be given life jackets.

Since river rafting is a popular activity in Rishikesh, you have many transport options. Shivpuri is the popular spot for river rafting. It depends on the length you wish to cover. If you are going with friends, you must start from Marine Drive or Shivpuri. It covers 16-24 kilometers. It is a challenging yet thrilling experience to cover longer distances. There will be lesser hurdles when you cover shorter distances. If you are going for river rafting with your family, you must opt for Brahmpuri location. It covers 9 kilometers and the difficulty level is low. Your family can enjoy the experience of body surfing and river rafting. In order to reach Brahmpuri, you can take a taxi or a local auto. If you are staying in a hotel, you can ask them to make arrangements for reaching the rafting spot.
