Rapids in Rafting: 

The rapids located in the river rafting in Rishikesh is split into 5 different grades, each of them ranging from easy to difficult, let’s take a look at the grades in more detail:

Grade 1: The easiest rapids, going through the plains and involving a less flow speed. You won’t have to manoeuver a lot and the water is shallow so it is ideal for non-swimmers. 

Grade 2: This is fine for novice people, a little tougher passing through rocky trails and uneven terrain. One must have prior rafting experience to undertake this. 

Grade 3: Now these rapids will be more strenuous, tiring and high in speed. The river will take a downwards flow and pass through rugged rocks, you must be a skilled rafter to choose this grade. 

Grade 4: If you are an experience rafter then you can undertake this grade, you will be travelling downhill at high speeds, endurance is a must! Make sure you can manoeuver your way through rocky patches safely. 

Grade 5: The most difficult yet thrilling grade of them all, for expert rafters only! This passes through heavy rocky patches and includes sudden drops, you must have endurance and a sharp reaction time. The river at this point is also deep and requires you to be a strong swimmer, you will also encounter whirlpools!
