There are a number of places that you could go-to for the best adventure travel but have you ever tried to plan an entire trip around an activity?

River rafting at Rishkesh is tougher than anywhere else in India and these two hours will be worth taking that trip. April and May are great months to head to Rishikesh for a rafting session.
