Rafting is a highly thrilling and extremely dangerous activity to try. But those who have done it once, know that it's worth getting hooked to.
River rafting comprises different zones and difficulty grades. The International Scale of River Difficulty has divided these levels into six.
Grade 1: Very small rough areas; suitable for beginners.
Grade 2: Slightly larger rough areas; basic padding skills will do.
Grade 3: Small waves and drops, not around very rocky areas.
Grade 4: Medium waves and drops, rocky terrain increases; should have sharp manoeuvring skills.
Grade 5: Large volume waves with large drops and rocks; need precise manoeuvring skills.
Grade 6: Huge waves and drops, highly rocky terrain; to be attempted by professionals only.
Though Rishikesh is the most popular destination for rafting in India, but in the country's vastness there are many other places that are perfect.
