India is famous for unity in diversity. Even with the diverse cultures, languages, traditions and attires, people of India are bound together by an invisible bond that can be felt by anyone visiting the country. Irrespective where you travel to in India you would be welcomed with open arms and friendly smiles all over. There are not only beautiful scenic places in India but adventure tours in India are extremely famous as well. The reason is for this popularity of Indian adventure tours is since India has such many varied kinds of places, from mountains to oceans to deserts to forests that the option for adventure sports are varied too.
One of the most famous adventure sports that you can enjoy in India is white water rafting. With the many snow fed flowing and frothing rivers adorning the many places of India, this adventure sport can be enjoyed in more locations than one in India. However the most popular place for this enjoyable adventure sport is Rishikesh, a town in the state of Uttarakhand. Although this place is more popular as a pilgrim spot for many tourists but rafting is a big draw for this quaint town of Uttarakhand as well. Since the best time for river rafting in Rishikesh is the winters, you would find many camps at the banks of the rivers during this season.
Rafting is fun in Rishikesh not only due to the excellent rivers flowing through this place but also for the excellent climatic conditions during the winter months. The summers and monsoons are best avoided for rafting since while summers are extremely hot here, monsoons make the rivers dangerous. Rishikesh rafting season starts around October and lasts till the month of February. During this time frame, you can choose to go for a rafting trip to this place on your own or you can book a package with a reputed tour and travel operating company. It would be great fun either way.
Rishikesh is easily accessible from Delhi and is very close to Hardwar, another famous tourist spot of Uttarakhand. There are also excellent quality accommodations available here for the comforts of tourists. You can choose to stay at hotels or you can also experience the thrill of staying at a rafting camp organized by the many tour operating companies during the rafting season. Just make sure you have the accommodation booked in advance.
