The double blade paddles are useful in negotiating with the waves and giving direction to your ride. It is very essential to have a working knowledge of the paddles and the movements before you hit the water.

You will find many Kayaking experts racing in the raging water of this Himalayan river in Rishikesh.


Rishikesh Kayaking is considered to be the best for many reasons, one of which is the challenging rapids and another is the excellent flow of the river. You need not worry even if you are an absolute beginner, there are many short courses for you to learn. These short courses teach you basic techniques like paddling strokes, turning strokes, halting, and maintaining a basic control and balance on the Kayak. If your course is of four to five days then your lodging and meals are also included in the fee.
