Kayaking in RishikeshThe popularity of kayaking in Rishikesh is increasing more and more. It is an adventure activity where the adventurer uses a kayak to paddle across a waterway. It is interesting to note that the sport of kayaking has different types. Depending on your preferences, you can also choose to go on a kayaking expedition or an extended trip across the Ganges. The adventure is even more fun when it is done on a white water river, the adventure termed as white water kayaking. If you have planned your trip to Rishikesh, you can never afford to miss a kayaking trip across the divine moving waters of the Ganges. Kayaking in Rishikesh has its own unique flavour.

RIVER DIFFICULTY
The adventure sport of Kayaking can be simple where you kayak across gently moving water. Or you can also choose a more demanding expedition where you can challenge upper grade white water. Ganges river rapids have been categorized into different grades according to the difficulty level. They have been classified from Grade I (simplest, slightly moving water) to Grade VI (almost unrunnable water).

Adventure lovers can choose a grade according to their physical stamina and age. Though the sport requires minimal skills, you should have an instructor with your to educate you about the basic techniques. Kayaks come in different shapes and sizes. There are different types of this adventure sport. When you enjoy kayaking along rivers and lakes, it is called recreational kayaking. If you have any doubt about which grade you should go for, you can always consult instructors for useful advice.

ESSENTIALS TO CARRY
The sport of kayaking does not require you to use a lot of equipment. There is minimal gear you need to be equipped with. Basic equipments used include kayak boat, a paddle and a life jacket. Waterproof bags also are very useful to stuff your essentials into. Since you will enjoy recreational kayaking in Rishikesh, you do not need much equipment like you do on an ocean kayaking trip.

The kayak, the boat used during the adventure, can be operated by one or two people. The operator can comfortably sit inside the kayak, with legs stretched out in front. Since majority of kayaks are closed, the lower portion of the operator's body remains hidden inside the kayak. You can easily use the paddle to move the kayak and move along the water body and white water.

KAYAKING TIPS FOR ADVENTURERS
White water kayaking requires you to keep a couple of things in mind. Since the river rapids have been classified into Grade I to Grade VI, you need to choose a grade that goes perfectly well with your individual preferences. The most important thing to remember while kayaking is that you have to prevent the kayak from capsizing. It can be difficult getting out of the kayak, as compared to getting out of a canoe or a raft. Be accompanied by an instructor who will guide you properly and will let you have an enjoyable adventure trip to Rsihikesh
