Best time for rafting in Rishikesh


The best time for rafting in Rishikesh is from March to May end (till the monsoon appears) and then from September to December. Though nowadays, rafting in Rishikesh is on in January and February too. And rafting in January and February is completely fine if you are ready to bear the chilled weather and chilled water of the Ganges. But the peak rafting season in Rishikesh is from March to May. One must not consider river rafting in the monsoon season. This can be fatal and suicidal.
