Battle with the raging torrents as the rivers flow through
picturesque mountains and icy waters froth over the boulders
and cut their way through deep gorges. With its numerous
rivers, mostly in the Himalayas, providing perfect
destinations for this sport, India has a natural advantage
over the other countries in the world as a river-rafting
