The land of soaring mountains, high-altitude passes and pristine lakes, North India is an ideal adventure sports destination in the country. Here, the state of Uttarakhand is the hub of numerous thrilling activities like mountaineering, trekking, wildlife safari and paragliding. During the winter season, when the shining white snow falls in the region, skiing opportunities also arise. Two other activities that can be enjoyed here are camping and river rafting. Hordes of people from all corners of the country travel to this scenic state to indulge in these activities.
Though there are countless activities to try in Uttarakhand, camping and white water rafting in the quaint city of Rishikesh have a unique allure. One of the other things that Rishikesh is known for is the fact that The Beatles, the English rock band, came here in 1968 to spend time meditating. There are a number of ashrams and temples here where you can seek solace. All these aspects together make the peaceful Rishikesh one of the preferred weekend getaways from Delhi NCR. About 234 km from the national capital, New Delhi, it is reachable only in a few hours.
If you are planning to turn one of your regular weekends into an adventurous one, then what better option than going for jungle camping in Rishikesh. Though there are many hotels in the city, none of them provides the quintessential experience that Rishikesh is famous for. Camping amidst nature, away from the cacophony and pollution of the metropolises, will be an unforgettable experience for you. If you want to take a break and relax your body, mind and soul, then camping and river rafting adventures in Rishikesh is the perfect way.
The Rishikesh camping and rafting tour begins from Shivpuri bridge, from where you start hiking. After walking along the gushing Ganga River for a few minutes, you will arrive at the campsite. The camps are provided with many amenities to ensure you stay comfortably during your adventure. There are power points that allow you to charge your phone so that you can take pictures of the serene surroundings. During your free time, you can also indulge in an array of indoor games like carom, chess and scrabble. The campsite also features a common thatched roof hut where guests can enjoy their meals or relax while reading a book. Camping is the best way to spend time in Rishikesh as it will bring you a lot closer to nature.
The river rafting adventures in Rishikesh are among of the biggest reasons that people are drawn here. The Ganga River and its numerous tributaries are ideal to try the activity. Different sections of the river offer rapids of varied grades. While there are a few 1 and 2-grade sections that are perfect for beginners, there are also some areas where thrill seekers can enjoy grade 3 and 4 rapids. As you paddle your raft on the sparkling waters of the river, the high grades pushing you up and down will get the adrenaline pumping in your veins.

In the tranquil aura of Rishikesh, you will forget all your worries and stress of the city life. While jungle camping in Rishikesh will give you peace of mind, rafting will speak to the adventure lover inside you, who wants to take on challenges.
