My mantra is “To travel is to live”, but my bank account screams otherwise (Meaning: To travel is to go bankrupt). You would blame Gayatri Datar’s pictures of river-rafting that made us wanderlust about new destinations. After furiously stalking Tula Pahate Re actress’ Instagram profile, we researched the affordable places where you could try this adrenaline-pumping adventure. Here’s what we found.
Before you check out the list below, have a look at Gayatri Datar’s act in Tula Pahate Re
1. Ganga, Rishikesh, Uttarakhand
This is one of the most famous river rafting spots in India. Book your seats either during September to November or March to April. There is nothing like taking a dive into the waters of Ganga. Don’t hesitate, just do it! These will be one of the best memories you will ever make.
2. Brahmaputra, Arunachal Pradesh
Pump yourself up for the greenery while rafting which begins at Dibrugarh. As you raft and swim in these waters, the adventure junkie will be thanking you. Don’t worry, it’s crazy, but you are going to love it!
3. Tons, Uttarakhand
Do you know from where the water of Tons flows? According to mythology, the water is teardrops of Surpanaka after Laxman cut off her nose. But, scientifically, it traces its path back to the Himalayas. The water is icy cold, so if you are not ready for it, you can also sip on a hot drink while taking in the view from afar.
4. Zanskar, Ladakh
You will get to witness the beautiful scenery of Leh and Ladakh. Wait, before you get excited, you should know this is among the toughest ones in India. There are said to be approximately 12 rapids on your way, so are you ready for Zanskar?
5. Spiti, Himachal Pradesh
You could visit this place during the months of May to October when the weather is more pleasant. The endpoint of this river rafting is Sumdo where you can get to experience powerful rapids.
It is only through these travels can we make memories as they force us to jump out of our comfort zone. So, which amongst these places you are planning to visit?
