I know we all are busy in hectic schedules & getting appraisals ..but what about a short, weekend adventurous trip 😊.
Last week i planned to go on a short , 1 day trip to rishikesh (uttarakhand), i called all my four friends and somehow i convinced all of them .we planned to go by bus as no one from us was used to drive car on hills .we booked our seats in a sleeper bus and reached on the pickup location( noida) on time. Our Bus left delhi by 11:30 pm and we reached rishikesh around 5:30 am , and the bus journey was quite comfortable. First we hired an auto to go on the river side and had breakfast over there , visited ram jhula and laxman jhula and clicked some sunrise pictures .
We had only 1 day to do all things like river rafting and visiting other places.
First of all we booked 2 rooms in a local hotel to have some rest and keeping our stuff then we went to a local agent to book our raft, there are many rafting agents nearby riverside just go and book your raft and u dont need to bargain as everyone has same prices.
So we booked our raft from shivpuri to laxman jhoola its approximately 16 km.we paid 1000 per person for 16 km. And it took around 2 hours to reach there. We took a halt for 30 min on the famous maggie point ..and have some maggie with tea, and there is also a cliff jumping point over there ..dont forget to jump in frizzing water😁.
After this awesome rafting experience we went back to our hotel and change our clothes and went to explore local market.
As we have only 1 day in our hand we couldn't do camping .so we decided to end our trip in rishikesh only..we hired a taxi to haridwar bcoz there was no direct train from rishikesh to delhi ..we reached delhi by 11:30 pm by train..we had so much fun in train too.i can say that it was a full of fun and adventurous short trip, and the best part of the trip is it was a budget friendly trip.
