7:00 am (Tent)It’s a new day and we have the most important action item lined up for us. Bungee Jump. Yes - Rishikesh is all about adventure sports and we had come with a determined mindset to do India's highest (83 mts.) Bungee Jump. I woke up my girlfriends and managed to get all tidy and cleaned up. We ate very little as we didn't wanted our bungee video to have projectile vomiting in it.Before we checked out, we sat by the river and sun bathed a little. The light breeze, the spotlight of the sun and the cold flowing water felt perfect in that moment. We clicked a few pictures and then decided to pack and leave.
A quick ride to the point from where we had to begin rafting and I see a serene river welcoming us for a new adventure. The Ganges - the mighty river of this country. Offering not only the calmness it posses but also the fierce aggression it holds.

A quick ride to the point from where we had to begin rafting and I see a serene river welcoming us for a new adventure. The Ganges - the mighty river of this country. Offering not only the calmness it posses but also the fierce aggression it holds.Today, we longed the Ganges to be as fierce as possible. The guide was really good. He was instructing us well, was funny and interactive. We were all geared up. Gajendra (the guide) told us all kinds of do's and don'ts. The ways to row the raft. Things to do in a rapid, things not to do in a rapid. How to halt, and what to do in case the raft topples. There were many instructions that were being told us. I missed out on a few of them because I was worried how on earth will Ronove manage to row because she is very skinny. Damballa and I exchanged looks that said - we're gonna die today. We sat in the raft. The unknown guy and I took up the two fronts of the raft on each sides. Behind me was Ronove and on the right end was Damballa with the guide in the center of the end of the raft.We chanted 'Ganga Maiya ki Jai' and with the blessings of the gods/universe we started our rafting journey. The initial hour was like a trial run. Learning how to row correctly, the movement of the body required and to hear carefully to the instructions and commands of the guide.
Around 12 pm we went for river rafting
