Rishikesh is a beautiful place that is often referred as the abode of Gods due its proximity to the various places of pilgrimage such as Badrinath and Kedarnath. Rishikesh is ideally located to encourage all forms of adventure activities. Besides river rafting in Rishikesh, you can enjoy rock climbing and rappelling, abseiling and kayaking.
River rafting is a sheer pleasure as you enjoy rafting on some of the most turbulent rivers of the world. The icy heights of the majestic Himalayas are the source of some of these mighty rivers that are fed by numerous streams as they race along dangerous boulder strewn beds past deep gorges while breaking up into foaming silvery white rapids.
River rafting in Rishikesh is an adventure sport with a kind of thrill that never seems to end as you float down at breakneck speeds through different colors of rocky gorges and forests, flowers and mountain top villages in the Garhwal and Kumaon hills. This sport of white water river rafting calls for a triumph over the swift and swirling river waters as they gush past threatening mountains.
This daring yet enjoyable sport is offered by Camp 5 Elements managed by the Leisure Hotels Group. During this incredible trip, you can exercise your option in the kind of rapids you will tackle. These rapids are graded from Grade I to Grade VI. While Grade I is basically to find out about the sport, Grade VI is a tough grade, one which will test your actual skills against nature.
