For centuries a Holy city, Rishikesh, India is today branding itself as an outdoor Adventure Sports centre. Especially for white water rafting. The Ganges here offers medium to rough rapids rated class 3 and class 4.
Bungee jumping was recently introduced, the only leap in India.
I’m here for trekking. But the trekking guides are NOT busy though it’s still high season.
My contact at Red Chili Adventures blames it on the Spring flooding which damaged many of the mountain roads. You can still see the damage here in Rishikesh.
In any case, I hope to survive a 9hr drive over those damaged roads tomorrow. En route to the Kuari Trek. Vistas of Nanda Devi.
I hear most of the flood damage has been cleaned up. In Rishkesh, it’s ongoing.
