Hey lovely people out there! Hope you all are doing great. This is your friend Geeta Sharma back again with some exciting news. I am planning to escape to a cool retreat the coming weekend and something very close to nature. I zeroed in and decided on an adventurous trip to Rishikesh. Well, it is always been on my wish list to give myself surprises with sudden trips, packing my bag immediately, and then waking up in a beautiful place like Rishikesh was indeed like a dream coming true!
Rishikesh is popular for a lot of adventurous activities, and I wish to experience each of them, particularly rafting in Rishikesh. It is necessary for one to come out of the tiring and monotonous life and have fun in the laps of nature. Rishikesh is also known as the land where yoga was born, the place is situated amidst mountains, besides rivers and surrounded by lush greenery and of course the pleasant climate always welcomes tourists.
Easy and quick tips for rafting in Rishikesh
There are many activities that you can experience in Rishikesh, some of them are- jungle trekking, cliff jump, body surfing, rock climbing, and of course rafting. Well, I always imagined myself rafting in Rishikesh, and have done my homework for my trip. The first or the most important tip is to trust experienced and popular companies who provide safety measures, assist you and be there with you.
No matter if the costs are high; do not compromise as the amount can be worth your safety. You need to be fit and in case you are suffering from any kind of sickness it is better to stay away. Check the gears and listen carefully to your instructors, this is another important tip that I am going to keep in mind.
Interesting rafting spots!
While I was doing some homework regarding rafting in Rishikesh in my smart phone, I came across some rafting places. Adventurous rafting at Tapovan is offered by Alpinestar Holidays. It charges 2200 INR and offers camping and other activities too with rafting. The second one is at Mahanda complex in Tapovan which offers rafting and other water activities at 800 INR.
You can find a lot of companies offering rafting activities in Rishikesh at particular prices, but make sure to choose the best and be safe folks! Wish me luck for my future trip friends!
Although the above quote is comical, it is true. One need not travel just for the sake of broadening one’s mind or thoughts or any significant changes in lifestyle, but also, travelling is often the bud, for a whole bunch of new topics to discuss and comment on. Also, it is an effective icebreaker, in case you’re an introvert.
Hotel Rajmahal Guwahati : During one of my project visits, to the city of Guwahati, I stayed in the Rajmahal Hotel. The hotel offers a multitude of facilities and I was greeted with royal hospitality and big smiles of employees, and it stayed so throughout the duration of my visit. The rooms are splendid and service was classy to the core.
My family vacation to Assam gave a unique opportunity to taste the Aloo Pitika from the region. It is a mashed potato dish with hints of shaved ginger, mustard oil and mustard paste. The dish also tasted a tad spicy because of the chili in it. It is known to be the soulful comfort food from the North East.
I wish you all a merry Christmas and I pray that this Christmas the Santaclaus brings all the happiness, joy and good luck to your life. I dream of exploring many new places and capture the beauty of mother nature under my lenses. I hope Santa grants me with the present, which I can use to do fulfill my dream.
