Whitewater RaftingWhite water rafting is one of the fascinating sports one can imagine on the intricate network of Mountain Rivers in India, provides an ideal opportunity for water sports enthusiast. The rapids of Ganga, Yamuna, Alaknanda, Bhagirathi and Bhilangana are perfect for river rafting. The less adventurous can go for angling or yachting.

One of the best passages through one raft is the Rudraprayag in the Uttarakhand region, which is situated at the confluence of the Alaknanda and the Mandakini-two of the main tributaries of the Ganga. The river makes its way through a series of rapids, narrow, gorges and quieter stretches, passing through the towns of Srinagar and Devprayag. Further on, the river reaches Kaudilaya, from where the stretch to Shivpuri and on to Rishikesh is a fairly demanding one. The Tehri-Shivpuri run, on the Bhagirathi river, is considered to be one of India’s best run-scenic and heart stopping exhilarating. Beginning at the town of Tehri, the run goes down the Bhagirathi river, passing through foaming rapids till it reaches Devprayag. At Devaprayag, the Bhagirathi merges with the Alaknanda. Passing Kaudilaya the run goes on to Shivpuri and then to Rishikesh.

Some of the other popular stretches for rafting on the Ganga and its tributaries are Kaliasaur to Srinagar, Srinagar to Bagwan, Matli-Dunda, Jangla-Jhala, Harsil-Uttarakashi , Dharasu-Chham, and Chandrapuri-Rudraprayag.
