Rafting and Religion at Rishikesh

I have to admit I have been keen on rafting. This time I was told by my raft expert Amit that the rapids have been named by Sir Edmund Hillary. I The name that is stuck in my memory is called ‘return to the sender.’ There would be more on rafting at the Ganges soon.

  1. Ha, ha. Good one. I have just got back from Rishikesh last weekend. Religion is what draws me there. My 7 year old wants us to go rafting. Hopefully soon.
