Mansa Devi Temple

Manasa Devi Temple seems to have a significant space among the minds of the devotees of Shakti, the goddess this temple is dedicated to. Perched on the top of Bilwa Parvat on the Sivalik Hills, the temple offers a splendid view of the mighty Ganges and the holy city of Haridwar. Rather than being a pilgrim centre, the temple makes its value higher among the adventure seekers as well because, the temple is accessible either only by trekking the high altitude or taking the recently established rope way. Chandi Devi Temple located very close to this shrine attracts a large number of devotees everyday as there is a belief that the two forms of Goddess Parvati, Mansa and Chandi stay close to each other.

Crystal World

In a short span of time, Crystal World Park has spread its wings to fly high among the people of Uttarakhand as well as people from outside the state. Its name was roaring loud as the fun and entertainment provided here would come above any other forms of activity outside. The park is the pride of the holy city, Haridwar now, located amidst the mighty Ganges, spreading across 18 acres of lush greenery and it holds many subtitles as North India’s largest family water pool, Wildwood Jungle Themes- Multi Slide Water Tower and so on. Over 32 rides steal the hearts of anyone who visits the park, be it children or adults; both the water based rides and land rides create fun in a peak level.

Har Ki Pauri

It is just marvelous to have the views of Har Ki Pauri, a famous ghat on the banks of the Ganges in Haridwar, especially in the evening, lit by thousands of lamps along with the glittering mountains in the backdrop. The name Har ki Pauri means the steps of Lord Shiva and the ghat witnesses many different festivities including the majestic Kumbh Mela in every 12 years, Ardh Kumbhmela in every 6 years. Thousands of devotees and pilgrims offering prayers here are an unusually usual sight every day. The Ganga Aarti happening in the evenings is very special to the pilgrims coming over, the lights are floated on the holy water as an offering to the lord. Being such an auspicious location, Har Ki Pauri brings forth high spirituality and refreshing attitude which in turn make the devotees keep attracted to the place again and again.

This exciting Alaknanda River Rafting experience is sheer adventure that will give you an amazing chance to actually quench all your adventure thirsts. This adventure offered a myriad of opportunities for the famous white water rafting in the gorgeous, stunning, and gigantic surroundings of the Himalayas. I am happy about this trip. It took me on a ride on one of the most holy rivers in the Indian Himalayas known as the Alaknanda River.

I took this trip to ride on rapids of river Alaknanda. This is a 5 day river rafting expedition that I booked from Chamoli to Rishikesh. It was a well spent week. In this tour Rapids of Grade 2 to Grade 5 were performed. During rafting the whole time was allocated to understand the basics and move forward with the rafting with high knowledge about it. We experienced high rapids on this stretch which includes Hillary Fall, Kakad Fall, The Wall, etc.

We were welcomed with a refreshing drink. Post that we were explained about rules of river rafting. This was crucial step as it was very useful later on. Other than rafting, we also had cliff jumping and body surfing. We played beach volleyball as well. Food, i.e. breakfast and dinner were provided, but it was not good. On all nights there was bonfire in the camp site. Accommodation was good with a nice beach side luxury camp.

The rafting is accompanied by camping. The camp site on the banks of this holy river is gifted with a thick forest. This forest served as a brilliant backdrop for our camp. The forest is also a home to a variety of birds. Waking up to the rhythmic sound of the chatty river waters was a serene experience. It was soothing to the ears and it also serves as beaches that fit perfectly playground for both adult and kids.

This trip took us through a number of Grade III, IV to IV+ rapids. For those who do not know about the grades, these are the levels of difficulty with rafting. These included the famous Hillary Fall and the Kakkar Fall. It was a thrilling experience.

This trip actually starts from the place called Chamoli. This is actually situated near the sacred Badrinath temple. The trip ends at Rudraprayag. Rudraprayag is the convergence of the Alaknanda and Madakini rivers.

The beauty of this trip is the upper stretches where one can have wild rapids and changing landscapes in terms of gorges and forests.

The Day one of our trip started with a drive from Haridwar to Jayalgarh. After breakfast at Jayalgarh, we were taught about the basics of rafting, and after a brief session, we started to report to our leader. After lunch we had a basic rafting at the Lower Alaknanda. This was more of a teaching session. After sleeping that night in camp, the next morning we went to Chamoli where we rafter in the Upper Alaknanda until noon and moved to Nandaprayog. After a bit of sight seeing and knowing local culture of Nandaprayog, we spent the night again in tents. The Day 3 was the most challenging day, we rafted from Nandaprayog to Karanprayag. It was super tough and exhausting. However, it was fun. The next day was higher grafe rafting through 10-12 rapids and then stay at Gauchar. The final day ended with Grade 5 rafting at the Kakkar Fall, which is the show stopper of this adventure. After that we went back to Rishikesh.
