The were served 3 meals per day in the camp. The food was really tasty as the touch of the local spices was evident in the cooking. We spent a lot of time sitting along the Ganges and playing in the waters. In the evening we enjoyed the group bonfire till late night and once again went back to the river bank. It wasn't before 3 am that we went back to our tents to grab some sleep. The excitement was making us want to spend as much time we had being awake and ravishing the scenes and soaking in the feel of the woods, water, hills and the valley.
The next day we went for the most sought after attraction of Rishikesh- The River Rafting. We booked our raft and were teamed up with another group of 4 people. So were total 8 participants in the raft. Before delving into the river, we were given our safety jackets and a basic training of rowing in sync. We spent about 2-3 hours in the river, crossing the rapids and enjoying the splashing of the waters. At a calm spot, we were asked to jump off the raft and enjoy the swim in case we wished to do so. And lo! The next second we were dipped in the Ganges, surrounded by several other rafts and on lookers. We swam across the flow and enjoyed the best moments of our lives. It was a task getting back into the raft. The other team mates had to really pull us hard against our naturally heavy weight and the added weight of wet clothes :P
