Hi all,


I am very new to India Mike , though I have opened my account with india mike last year August but this is the first time I am going through the threads and find it very helpfull.

Firstly I would like to thank all the members for their wonderful threads sharing which is really helpful and informative.

I with a friend of mine we two are planning to travel to Rishikesh mainly for Bunjee jumping and river rafting in the month of April 2014 . our journey will start from New jalpaiguri.

Will the experts please help me to know how do I plan for the same as the condition of uttarakhand was devastating in the year 2013.

Please help me !!

Geet Sengupta,

Please concentrate on your signature.



Also Please go through the below details,


White Water Rafting
Rishikesh is very popular for its rafting on the River Ganga (Ganges). Season: September-November and March-April-May are ideal for rafting. The rafting will go on for several kilometres, and the path is interspersed with rapids, ranging from Level 1 to Level 5, in order of difficulty. At the end of the trip, you have the option of jumping some 20 feet from a ledge into the water. There are several local travel agencies, offering these rafting trips. The package usually includes an overnight camp on the banks of the river, with a brilliant and moderate trek among the hills in the morning. If one has time, courses in rafting are also offered.for more information call +91 9837258258 [2]

Camping
It is a recreational activity that does not have any age limit. Any individual who likes to explore new places and enjoy the beauty and serenity of nature can embark on a camping voyage. Camping in Rishikesh on the Ganga beach offer an environment to wake up with the birds and swim in the fresh water of the river Ganges. Camping in Rishikesh is a very popular activity. Nearest camp is just across Goa Beach adjacent to first suspension bridge called 'Luxmanjhula' call ++91 9410540000

Rappelling
Climbing down with a rope is called rappelling. The group is taken to a spot where there is a cliff drop, experts with proper equipment who set up the gear first and then, one by one, everyone comes down. It's all about trusting your gear and following the instructions and then it's a lot of fun.

Rock climbing
This is something everyone is familiar with, this is also included in some of the camps but not everyone can do it as it requires a lot of strength and skill. The group is taken to a cliff side and with proper safety gear everyone is given a chance to climb the cliff side.

Cliff Jumping
You are supposed to jump into freezing water from a cliff! Yes, it sounds crazy but this is one thing which everyone can brag about back home. Of course you are wearing a life jacket and a helmet but still jumping from so high into the Ganges, which is murky so the bottom can't be seen, is not like jumping into a swimming pool where one can see the bottom and the water is static.

Kayaking
It is the use of a kayak for moving across water. Kayaking is differentiated from canoeing by the fact that a kayak has a closed cockpit and a canoe has an open cockpit. They also use a two bladed paddle. Another major difference is in the way the paddler sits in the boat. Kayakers sit in a seat on the bottom of the boat with their legs extended out in front of them. Canoeists will either sit on an elevated bench seat or kneel directly on the bottom of the boat. Whitewater kayaking is the sport of paddling a kayak on a moving body of water, typically a whitewater river. Whitewater kayaking can range from simple, carefree gently moving water, to demanding, dangerous whitewater. One can learn this sport by taking kayaking courses.
