RISHIKESH is truly 'the heart of Uttarakhand'. Your ultimate gateway to peace. The city so peaceful, i could just live here forever. Getting up early morning and Sitting on the rocks by the Holy Ganga river is my favorite thing to do here. Walking on the famous Laxman jhula bridge is joy.
"We did Rafting(16kms), it was a near to death experience as my raft flipped in the middle of the biggest rapid in rishikesh. The force of the water is scary fast, Imagine falling in that water. I could not see anything but water, had no idea if i am get out good or not, are my friends safe or not. Suddenly someone pulled me and next thing i saw was_my sister crying and scared. Thanks to our rafting guide who got me and my friends out safely. This was very Scary but what i feel is such experiences make u strong and make your travel stories sound more interesting."
While being the most peaceful city Rishikesh is also the most adventures city. There are many adventures activities to do which are lately getting very popular between young ones.
May it be White Water Rafting in the River Ganga or Bungee jumping from the height of 83 meters, which is India's highest bungee.
Also there are activities like Giant Swing(highest in India-83mtrs) and Flying fox.
This was my travel story from Uttarakhand, if you want your travel stories to be like this, i organize private trips and Himalayan treks.
