White Water River Rafting in Ganges
White water rafting is an exhilarating, thrilling activity. It is becoming increasingly popular with youth and more mature people for the excitement it brings. This activity is usually carried out in turbulent rivers with swirling, eddying waters that can thrill, terrify and send your heart racing as the inflatable in which you travel is tossed about by the wildly raging waters. It needs skill and strength to manage a boat but once you do, the sense of power and mastery over raging waters can be deeply satisfying. Usually, the North of India, home to many rivers that begin their journey as torrential streams, is the happy hunting place for white water rafting. In recent times it is Rishikesh that has become the star destination for people who are into this daring adventure sport. Namasteindiatrip offers a number of white water rafting experiences in this amazing destination. In addition you can also indulge your taste for rafting, kayaking, rock climbing, rappelling, cliff jumping, body surfing and river crossing in a holiday that packs in action from start to finish. We have tours for different age groups and for different budget. Check them out.
