The holiday season is in and it’s time to relax. It’s time to move out of your homes and do something thrilling and exciting away from all the cobwebs. Take out time for yourself and your family now. River rafting destinations have emerged as fantastic adventure holiday sports. Below are 5 places you should check out for river rafting in India.

The first place for ones who are interested in river rafting is Rishikesh. Rishikesh is a divine city in Uttrakhand. It is known as the river rafting capital of India. At the outskirts of Rishikesh, it offers numerous camps having trained professionals to help you out with rafting. They are perfectionists in their work. They offer you 15 km ride from Shivpuri to Rishikesh. Rishikesh also offers you online prior bookings for rafting. So get set for this challenging experience.

The second place in India for river rafting is Ladakh. River rafting in Ladakh is one of the most happening river sports. It’s a chilling hub. Ladakh offers rafting on the River Indus from grade 1 to grade 5 through gorgeous landscapes and the breathtaking Ladakh valley.

The third place which I would like to suggest is Teesta River in Sikkim. This is one of the rough rivers. So it’s quite enjoyable and adventurous. This is the best holiday spot to enjoy your vacation. It’s a wondrous experience because the water flows from rocks and crags. Once you go there, you would like to live the experience again and again.

The fourth place which in India for rafting lovers is in Zanskar. It arises near the border of Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir. This isn’t dangerous river; it’s quite safe because the water flow is not at a high level as it is in Bhagirathi and Alaknanda. Best time to visit here is July and August.

The fifth is Bhagirathi River. The flow of water is so high that it will give you a rush. It mostly covers grade 3 and grade 4 rapids like elephant rock, the shoot, the sharp ‘S’ and the confluence rapids. This is the best expedition one can ever have.

So what are you waiting for? Go and enjoy this mesmerizing and splendid experience with nature’s beauty. Have a great journey. Happy holidays!
