Rishikesh, also called as the “Gateway to the Garhawl Himalayas”, is located near the foot of Himalayas in the Indian state of Uttrakhand. Whether you are travelling alone or with your family and kids, Rishikesh offers an opportunity for everyone. It is a wonderful destination, whether you are looking for some time to relax or want to indulge in adventure sports. Among the many adventure sports that one can indulge in Rishikesh, river rafting is the best. I took part in a river rafting expedition. It was a trilling experience for me and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole 16 km ride.
