They say there are two reasons why people visit Rishikesh- rafting and religion. I managed to get both in one frame. This was clicked after we completed our rafting near Ram Jhula.

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.

I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
