HolidayIQ reviewer Shubham Verma says, "Went early morning for rafting from Shivpuri to Rishikesh, sailing in mighty waves of Ganges." The water is graded, grade 1 being easy with small waves to grade 5 where the rides are extremely trying.

HolidayIQ reviewer Chetna Mathur shares, "The experience simply blows your mind. But before you go for the camp and rafting, do book your guest house. Reason being, after a solid 4 hours of being in the water all you want to do is change into dry clothes."

HolidayIQ reviewer Gagan Narang gives a detailed account of his experience, "No need to know swimming. You will be given a helmet and life jacket which can float weights up to 125 kgs. Take your camera and ask them to capture for free. Typically 1km takes 1.5 hours which starts with jumping into the quiet water. Tranquillity of the place surrounded by tea estates gives you peace. The best part is the rapids where the inflatable boat goes down the flow thumping. If you are lucky, it may topple. Overall it is extremely thrilling."

Pichavaram is home to the second largest Mangrove forest in the world. HolidayIQ reviewer Aditya says, "The boat meanders through several passes between the islands."

HolidayIQ reviewer Piruthivi Raj shares about Pichavaram Mangrove Forest, "One of the unique Eco-tourism spots in South India, the backwaters are interconnected by the Vellar and Coleroon river systems. They offer abundant scope for water sports like rowing, kayaking and canoeing. It not only offers waterscape and back water cruises, but showcases trees permanently rooted in feets of water.

HolidayIQ reviewer Kriti shares, "The best thing to do in Dandeli is Kali River water sports. Long river rafting is a MUST DO. You won't want to miss what real rafting is supposed to be. It is about 9km and the second best in India after Rishikesh." The adrenalin pumping two-hour session on the fierce Kali River is an experience no one should miss. HolidayIQ reviewer Rahul adds, " The adventure involved in rafting on 7 different rapids is fabulous."

Kayamkulam Lake is located in Alleppey, spread over an area of 60 sq km and is one of the most scenic backwaters in Kerala. HolidayIQ reviewer Vikas shares, "Kayaking was one of the highlights of our time in Kerala. The six-hour afternoon kayak tour is very well-designed. You do a fair amount of kayaking, but in four short sessions that are interspersed with lunch and breaks on a small traditional motorboat. Kayakers of all levels should be able to manage."

HolidayIQ reviewer Vijaya gives a detailed account of her experience, "The whole rafting experience is so much fun and especially when you are with a good trainer. Depending on the amount of rain there will be 4-5 rapids and you'll be taken 5-7km which will take roughly 2-3 hrs."

While HolidayIQ reviewer Shyam says racing with the other rafting teams was, "so joyful," HoludayIQ reviewer Kranti shares that rafting on river Kali, "was the most unforgettable experience."
