Experience Spirituality plus Adventure in Haridwar and Rishikesh

by Abhinav Jha Blogger
How about visiting a place with a peaceful environment and move a little ahead to create an adventure memory? Aren't you excited thinking about the same thinking to explore these type of place? Let me help you to live those moments with my own experience of my road trip to Haridwar and Rishikesh. It was a plan made instantly, and we started our journey next day early morning to escape the hustle bustle of road traffics. We began at around 4 am from Akshardham, filled Gas and petrol at Raj Nagar Extension. We were five friends travelling in a Santro. Roads from Delhi to Roorkee is buttery smooth and one thing I want to convey you that last Gas station is in Meerut. If you're going to fill gas en-route, then Meerut is the last Gas station. Uttarakhand has no gas station, and if your gas runs out, then you have to run your vehicle in petrol/diesel. So be careful.
Now coming to the point after Roorkee roads are inferior, you may also face some traffic jams due to trucks. We reached Haridwar around 9 am and directly headed towards Har Ki Pouri and plunged in the holy water of Ganges River.  It was peaceful, and it provided a different type of energy to keep going. We enjoyed a lot at Har Ki Pouri. After that everyone was hungry, so we went to Mathura Wale, a shop known for its Puri Sabji. A delicious breakfast after a peaceful bath in the holy river is a bliss. It was planned to visit Mansa Devi via Rope Way, but due to time constraint, we dropped our plan for ropeway ride. 
After breakfast, we advanced to Rishikesh, or I would say we forwarded ourself to Shivpuri. We already booked camps and river rafting in advance to make our nights comfortable. Shivpuri is 37 KM from Haridwar, travelling on this route can be annoying as on weekends this route is heavily loaded with tourist and travellers.  On weekends people always want a getaway from city hustle bustle, so every tourist place notices same traffic and Rishikesh known as Adventure sports destination then there is hell lots of traffic on weekends.
We reached Shivpuri at around 3 pm, checked-in in our allotted camps. Camps situated beside the Ganges river was mesmerising.
Our lunch was ready though not so good in taste but was ok on an empty stomach. After lunch, we explored nearby places and played with some of the campmates. There is various refreshment facility available inside camps with indoor and outdoor includes volleyball, football, carrom, bone fire and many more. Depends on the price one pays you will get other amenities. We spent 1300/head for camps, river rafting and foods.  Around 7 pm snacks are served, and dinner will be served from 9 pm to 10 pm. You can enjoy boozing with groups there and play various games. After dinner, we slept as we were allocated 8 am for our rafting session.
We woke up early morning, freshen up and moved to the desired location of our rafting. 
Our rafting location was 16 km above Shivpuri. Reaching our spot instructor checked out safety and instructed everything one should know about rafting. We were filled with excitement and thrill before starting the trip. Our rafting session was of 16 km which took around 3 hours to complete. This 16 km consists of 6 rapids which were of grade II level and will be very adventurous. The place where rafting session takes place is around 150 meters deep. You can also take a plunge inside the river if you want to when you reach still waters. It was a new and enjoyable experience for all of us.
After rafting, we headed towards our camps drenched in water. Our breakfast was ready; it was great at that time. Now it was time to check-out from the camps. We moved out of the tents and went to a place we fixed while rafting and enjoyed for some time. Then advanced our journey back to Delhi. We stopped in between at Rishikesh and explored the streets of Rishikesh, visiting Lakshman Jhula.  Again we started our vehicle to return to Delhi and only once stopped around 12 to have dinner and reached Delhi at about 4 am. We returned little slow. We were exhausted when we arrived our homes and instantly slept. I want to point out that be ready to be drained in the whole trip.
