Once in life we all have dream of doing some adventurous sport.. From childhood days I'm so much sporty and an outdoor person. Trying any adventurous sport is not equal to trying any roller coaster but still for both you need guts! 😜 River rafting in my country India is famous in North East India - Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Sikkim are well known for river rafting sport. If you are a professional in this sport then you must definitely try it in uttarakhand as in Rishikesh it's a splendid experience for pro rafters! I was on my trekking in manali and after we all successfully completed our trek it was time for some fun sport with some chilling ice water 😛 basic information will be given by instructors or the rafting company you paid for.. but for those who went on their own and don't have idea here's some tips - wear light clothes, don't wear any thermals or sweater as you will get wet and hard clothes sucks more water will keep your body heavy. Don't wear slippers or any boots, don't take your cell phone and wallet or money with you. Keep them safe in your bus.
River rafting is long duration sport. It took 50min almost an hour to reach the final destination. So after booking the boat and standing near to beas river in which we were going to have some serious fun, we all were freezing. Temperature was -1° it's like we are gonna take bath in freezing cold ice melting water in -1 degrees🙆 In our boat there were 9 rafters including the boat instructor. After wearing life jacket and helmet we were ready. In the starting just to get adapted with the water instructor was throwing water on us.😂
Slowly boat started taking its speed with the flow of water.. After getting ahead instructor said all of us to get down on knee and dace the side of water honestly am first I feared what he's gonna do as there are boat stunt performed and they are actually breathe taking. We followed him by getting down and after 30 seconds one flow of freezing water hitted us so hardly, oh we were now refreshed! Super chilled.. Haha!
Similar stunts we did by sitting on edge of boat, keeping legs inside the water. In all this was the fun we had! You all must try this watersport once in life. This was the basic rafting the ones who don't know the swimming can also do it. In the middle of water, our instructor guided us to have a look of water by getting in it ,that's we must go in to the river to feel it how freezing it was! Haha. It's not dangerous, he guided us well.. There's always a rope tied around the boat, by help of that rope get down in to water but don't leave the rope, have a proper grip so that you don't get flown away by the fast water tides. After sometime instructor pulled us up and then we continued on river 😍 by clicking some pictures and having chants for engery, we reached to the final destination ☺ It was the most amazing adventurous sport and I loved it! After the river rafting, near the river side there r plenty of changing rooms where we changed our clothes. We all were freezing, there were bonfire that was really warm and helpful 😊 Must try thing here is eating Maggie and just seize the moment.. Magical, everything seems perfect - A Cup of Maggie + Chilled Wind + River + Mountains =Everything sums up 😍
Trust me you will never have such a pleasant atmosphere in your city.. I was in love with this surrounding and masterpiece of nature and I really didn't wanna go back to routine.. But I've packed the bags of memories and moments to cherish my entire life ❤❤
