Rishikesh, needs no introduction. A small town in the Himalayan foothills, on the banks of the holiest river of India, Ganges.
I had passed Rishikesh multiple times in my trips to farther destinations before but hadn't ever taken a halt in this town, which is famous for yoga, meditation, temples, ashrams, and of course the many adventure activities like River Rafting, Zip Lining, Cliff diving to name a few.
This was a company sponsored vacation, which meant I didn't have to shell out a dime from my pocket.
I had rafted once in Beas river, in Kullu. That was in 2011. Albeit small, it was an awesome experience too. However, time and again I had been told by friends and family alike to try rafting in Rishikesh, as it has many rapids and the most famous in India.
