I know its been long since I posted, but these last few weeks I have been traveling on weekends and tired on weekdays. Finally after all the laziness has weared off, today I present to you the first post of the series : Rishikesh Calling.
After rigorous planning, shopping and packing, finally the day arrived when all 11 of us headed for an adventure vacation. On 18th March, we had an early flight out of Bangalore. The flight to Dehradun was via Delhi. We reached Dehradun around 12 PM.
Our trek with India Hikes was planned for 21st March. As we had a whole weekend before that, we decided to make the most of it and planned for a mini adventure in Rishikesh along with some spiritual experiences as well.
We signed up with Outbound Adventure for River Rafting expedition with 1 night River side camp stay. Once we reached Dehradun, they arranged the transport from airport to their Campsite. A Tempo Traveller will cost you 3000 INR. It took us almost an hour to reach the campsite.
Once we reached there, the manager showed us around. This place was absolutely beautiful with a river flowing on one side and around 15 to 18 tents on the other side and a huge circular tent where food and snacks were served which also turned out to be the only place where you had access to plug point.The weather was super hot which made us wonder how are we going to get through the night in tents without power.
