Are you a woman with an adventurous spirit who loves extreme sports and venturing into challenging turfs? How many times have you been sidelined in this male-dominated area and told that adventure is not for girls? In answer to all your woes, Pep Turf, the highly acclaimed adventure sports company, is organising an All Women Rafting Expedition along the Ganges that is set to mark a niche for women in adventure sports. Under the powerful and unmatched leadership of Khatron Ke Khiladi participant Major Priya Jhingan, the first woman to join the Indian Army, Pep Turf invites all women above the age 16 to participate in a 104 km rafting expedition from October 6-10, 2017 at Rishikesh. This expedition is something that India and its adventurous lasses have never seen before!
The river Ganga is one of the best rivers for rafting in India as it has challenging rapids, fast currents and white waters that make for an exhilarating rafting experience. Enjoy Grade III/IV exciting waters as you bathe in the sacred energy and purity of rivers like Bhagirathi, Pindar, Alaknanda, Nandini and Mandakini. Surrounded by hills that are carpeted in lush greens, Rishikesh is the perfect hub for rafting.
