Rishikesh is a popular destination for adventure-seekers. Owing to its amenable location (remember, it is located just on the lower ranges of the Himalayas) and geographic conditions, the culture of adventure-sports has really caught on with the tourists visiting this place.

  • Trekking

    Explore the wild side within you as you go conquering rivers, forests and mountains on your trekking trip. A few trekking routes much sought-after among tourists are- Roopkund trek,Thalisain trek, Buwani Neergud, etc. Don't forget to wear proper trekking shoes when you head out for the trails. The best time recommended for this venture is supposedly between February and October.

  • White Water Rafting

    Water rafting involves an inflatable raft which is used to navigate through a water-body. The
    Ganga region particularly experiences high and rough tides often. Since it is slightly dangerous, it must be done only after proper training and guidance. So, tighten up your harnesses and go ahead to conquer the gush of Ganges!! The best time suitable for rafting would be the autumn and spring season.

  • Mountain Biking

    This sport was not very popular till a few years ago; however, in the recent years, it has really gained much favour among tourists. It is most dominant in the
    Mohenchatti area. For this, the interested must contact the various tour operators, who may make all the necessary arrangements like training and organizing.

  • Canyoning

    Gaining recent popularity is another adventure sport in Rishikesh is, Canyoning. It is basically hiking down a canyon, done in the rugged and wild terrains. This involves path-finding, navigation and exploring the rough wilderness as you progress with your physical and mental skills. It is mostly performed in the narrow Ganga gorges in the terrains of Shivalik Himalayas.

For further guidance on tour managers, you could contact the tour guides and tour agencies based there.
