I have more than once traveled from Rishikesh to Joshimath and beyond. And I would always marvel at the river going along the road.
So here I was again looking out from a window of a bus and clicking pictures. We were traveling from Kaudiala to Devprayag, the distance between the two is 30 kilometers.
And then imagine walking down this path, entering a raft and traveling all those 30 kilometers in the middle of the river. They keep the cameras in a safe bag and let you use it when the raft is in calm waters. Could I ask for anything more?

You traveled by bus – brave.
People say I travel by motorbike is brave.
Appu have not sen an update from you in a long time?
I was thinking to rip you apart for such images…till i read that they were taken from moving bus…:)
Tarun 😀 and in glaring sun too apart from the moving bus.
When did you make this trip? I did this trip (rafting at Kaudiyala) with a few friends from IIT Kanpur in my final yr as part of adventure sports club 🙂 Ah, such memories!
Ishwar I did it this month, at the beginning of April.
I am hoping to go there soon, my first time to that region. But like you, I am also dependent on Avomin.
How are the trekking trails there?
Nisha I unfortunately did not do trekking this time apart from a short night trek near the camp. This one was only rafting. But it would be getting really hot around Rishikesh now?
I am aware you could not do any trekking this time. But generally how are the trails if you remember from your previous trips?
🙂 I am not going immediately. Was thinking of one in next 2-3 months once it cools down and if time permits me. 🙂
No Nisha even on previous trips we have started trekking at higher heights. We have trekked from Joshimath and the views are fab.
