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.

‘Yoga’ is also an important reason to visit Rishikesh.

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.
