The river Ganga has been host to many a great white water sportsmen from all over the world and it has not been without reason. The upper valley tributaries of the Ganga, the Alaknanda and the Bhagirathi are reasonable expedition level rivers. They meet at Devprayag to form the Ganga which for the next 70 km to Rishikesh is another expedition in itself. The 35 km of the river from Kaudiyala to Rishikesh is the commercial white water hub of the country. With more than 50 riverside camps and over 150 river rafting outfitters, the sport of river rafting is growing by leaps and bounds in India by the passing years. But it is the section from Shivpuri to Rishikesh that sees the maximum number of river rafting enthusiasts every year.
