Top 15 Best Places for River Rafting in India for Your Trip

Flowing through the rapids and riffles and experiencing the adrenaline rush, that’s the magic of river rafting. India is blessed with numerous rivers and tributaries with immense flow, suitable for water river rafting in India.

While choosing the destination for you, keep in mind the level of difficulties and intensities of rapids; if you’re a beginner to rafting, make sure you choose a river with grade 1 or 2 rapids. You don’t want to go in off season, where you won’t get the enjoyable rush of the water, so time your trip appropriately! It would be a wise decision to take a stay near your rafting camp.

Few things to keep in mind before going river rafting:

Speak to your guide about everything! How to paddle, what to do if you fall, what to do if a boat-mate falls too!

Wear appropriate attire: avoid wearing cotton since it takes a lot of time to dry. Synthetic materials are the best choice for apparel.

Keep your life jacket on and tight the whole time!
