Kayaking is a popular water sport that has many diverse forms, including sea kayaking, sit on top kayaking, white water kayaking, surf kayaking, kayak touring, and many different types of competition kayaking.
Kayaking is also an Olympic sport, with flat water sprint races and white-water slalom races. Hundreds of thousands of people try kayaking in some form every year, making it one of the fastest growing adventure sports in the UK.
In Uttaranchal there are many very interesting rivers for kayakers. Most important are Bhagirati and Alaknanda rivers that become the Ganges after the confluence. These are big volume, powerful rivers. The paddling on their uppermost sections can be interesting for very strong kayakers, but it is very tiresome due to a lot of portages. The difficulty is grade-4 to grade-6. One would have to carry the boat over huge chunks of rocks which takes away forces and time. The paddling on lower sections is much more interesting and easier, because there are significantly less portages and valley also widens.
The 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.
