Rishikesh is a heaven for adventure enthusiasts. This destination offers River Rafting, Camping, Bungee Jumping, Rock Climbing, Rappelling and Trekking. Rafting starts from the hilly area to get the optimum current required for rafting. River Rafting and camping are the best option to keep your mind refresh and get away from the hustle bustle daily life.
Rishikesh is the nearest river rafting destination from Delhi so last weekend we decide to go Rishikesh. We called Majestic Journey as earlier they have prepared our outing plan at Jim Corbett Park. That was perfect plan for us. So we choose them again, they have their own camps at Rishikesh and expert rafting guides. We choose 24kms rafting from Marine Drive to Nim Beach and beach camping stay. Majestic Journey offers us complimentary rock climbing, rappelling and trekking. We were happy and very excited to enjoy the adventure. We packed our bags and kept the necessary belongings like Torch, Sleepers, T-shirt, lower, suns cream, sun glasses, camera etc.
Late evening we started from Gurgaon. Our Tempo traveller was in time. Early morning at 7:00 am we were at Rishikesh. We called “Jayendra” representative of Team Majestic and informed him about our current location. We start journey towards the Rishikesh – Badrinath highway. Jayendra received us at Shivpuri Bridge and instruct the driver about the camp location.
Our camping site was really awesome and unique. It was around 5kms far from the main Shivpuri market across the river. It was surrounded by the deep forest. Afternoon we drive towards Marine Drive to enjoy rafting. Our guide gave us some training about rafting and its proper command like “All Forward, All Back, Right Forward- Left Back, Left Forward and Right Back, Get down etc”. He checked every individual’s life jackets and helmets.
We were 9 persons inside a raft including the trainer. We were paddling as per instruction by the Guide. Our rafting faced various rapids “Welcome, Black Money, Three Blind Mice, Crossfire, Welcome Shivpuri, Initiation, Roller Coaster, Golf Course, T-off, Club House, Cliff Jumping,Body Surfing and Double Trouble”. We were covering every rapid with our full strength and cheering after every successful completion with “Yo Baby, Yo Baby, Yo Baby Yo…”. We finished Nim Beach near at Laxman Jhoola. Our guide appreciates our help to hold the boat and take it out from the water.
This tour will add several amazing memories in your life and you will definitely repeat this destination next year. Staying an adventurous location refresh the mind body and soul. It also increases the working capability and motivation.
