Travel Trip to Rishikesh
Rishikesh is a city in Uttarakhand in Indian in the Himalayan foothills which is very famous for river rafting , bungee jumping , hiking , etc.
I , after completing my 1st year graduation examination planned a trip to Rishikesh along with two of my friends. Thrilled about everything from adventure sports to the pleasant weather which we were going to experience in the usually hot month for us , the North Indians , that is April.
It was a two days' trip . With our backpacks filled with clothes , accessories and excitement , we took a bus from New Delhi to Rishikesh. It took some good seven hours to reach the destination and we reached Rishikesh at 5 in the morning.
The weather was cold and the scenic beauty was just flawless.
After much struggle , we finally got rooms for ourselves by wherein we relaxed for a while then we headed towards exploring the city.
After viewing the city on day 1, we went for rafting which was worth Rs. 500 per person, No ! Actually it was worth much more as it gave us a life cherishing experience.
We rafted for some 16 Kms which took four hours .
The highs and lows which we were experiencing during the rafting reminded me of life which is full of highs and lows but the best part is everything is so temporary to be extremely sad or happy about . Therefore , we need to maintain neutrality and stability in our lives.
After the tedious and fun rafting all we could afford to do was to eat and sleep and thus ended our day 1.
On day 2 , we checked out of the hotel and visited Lakshman Jhoola which, I swear is one heaven of a place in Rishikesh. We were all busy viewing the scenic view and kept gazing for hours. Post this , we possibly went to all the markets in the city and had fun bargaining !
Day 2 was comparatively a less tiring one as after side seeing and Shopping we took the bus back to Delhi and thus ended our trip.
Though it was a two days' trip , the memories and the experience it extended is life lasting .
Dear Readers , Rishikesh is a damn beautiful place so you got to plan a trip to this place as it is reasonable and well as ravishing.
