Studying into one of the premier technical Institutes has numerous advantages in itself but the best one is travelling and adventure sports as far as Roorkee is concerned. Roorkee is a small city in the Uttrakhand state of India, famous for IIT-Roorkee. Enough of self praise, let's get to the point straight. :P
It was a summer evening and the thirst of adventure was pumping up, the best thing which we could do was Rafting in the summer heat. Now as Roorkee is just around 50 km away from Rishikesh, students keep visiting in and the nearby places. So the students here have an idea about the prices of the various adventure activities. We called up one of the Rafting agency and got the following information :
Rafting : ( 18 km )
Original Price : 600 pp.
After Bargaining : 300 pp + transportation from bus stand itself to the agency office and further to the rafting site.
NOTE : A rafting boat is generally 12/8 seater. So if you have a group of people in multiples of these numbers (like 8, 12, 16, e.t.c ) you won't have to wait there for the raft to get filled + You get full freedom of enjoying in the boat. Youngsters will get it ! :P
We were fully excited for the trip. Adventure + successful bargain is what an Indian heart crave for!
