My Trip To Haridwar and Rishikesh Uttarakhand - Day One

The city of devotion, prayers and adventure. As we started our journey from delhi at 11:00 pm . We were five friends in a car. We were enjoying our travel with antakshari and gossiping . After 4.30 hours we reached first Haridwar- Kali Mandir(4.00am) . The gate was closed when we arrived. 


Bath in River Ganga:
Everywhere was darkness, dogs were barking. After some time the gate has opened and we enter inside. Then at 5:00 am were ready to take bath in river GANGA.


It is just behind of the temple. You can't belive, i never forget that moment when we enter in the river , we all are very afraid due to darkness, flow of river, and stormy wind making fear in our body. We were holding the hand of each other and taken first dip  and after that we enjoyed alot and had worship of God.


Sudden weather changed and started raining . when it stop we were go outside and take the tea. Ahhhaa what a feeling Rain, cool wind and tea , great combination of a great  morning.


Chandi Devi Temple:
After taking this break we started Chandi Devi climb. Chandi Devi Temple is situated at the top of hills Neel Parvat. It is a shakti Peethas and one of the most famous temple in north india. It is beleived that Chandika Devi rested here for some time so it's named as Chandika Devi temple. 


Finally we reached at Chandi Devi temple and had prayer in the temple . when we see from there we feel that we were at very high point . 


The whole way was full with natural beauty, different trees and of course so many monkies on the road and trees, but they did not bother us. We all became very tired so decided to sit somewhere. We had taken so many pictures and videos.  Now it’s time to back we started to return, it was easy as compare to climbing .We came to down side. 

Rajaji National Park:


We also visited Jungle which was helding near of Haridwar –Rajaji National Park . It I spread around 820 SQ KM . We had listen from others that there were tigers found, we had not seen tigers but other animals like deer, asian elephants, tiger, king cobra, chital, wild boar, python etc. You can take Jeep Safari and Elephant Safari here. Rajaji National Park is best holiday destination for nature lover and wildlife enthusiasts . Best time to visit here,  is november to june . The forest area is famous for it's trees like sal, teak, sagon,  uk liptus etc.  
You will find yourself more near to Himalayan beauty . After this we moved to Rishikesh. An hour journey we reached Rishikesh.

River Rafting:

River Rafting

At 2.00 pm. we reached at shivpuri for river rafting. If, we mention rafting, it creates a thrill in our body. we were five friends and other group member on that raft. we started our rafting journey with master's instruction that how to hold paddle, get down and up, holding rope and making balance. We started, slowly-slowly we were getting  inside(mid) of the river Ganga . 
Many groups of rafts coming there as we joining cheers. That was happy moment and we were cheering, hooting , singing in loud. I was holding a paddle and moving that opposite of the boat. I was 18 km long rafting . 

Rafts

In this we met with many rapids on the way . One of the biggest rapid came across to us and we all were inside the water, the flow was so high. After that our instructor stop the raft at a point where river flow was slow. And said you can get down from the boat and enjoy. 
One by one we get down into the water and holding the rope. We already have life jackets so there is no chance to fear but for our more safety we have to do this. That time i was feeling that i am flying in the sky and there is no restrictions. I was not able to put my leg down on earth because we were into very deep place. 


Raft River View

Cliff Jumping:

After that we reached at cliff jumping point, this place was very crowded with people. Cliff jumping experience was totally different, i felt like i was dead and then someone had gave oxygen to me then alive-Unforgettable moment .
Again we reached on their boats to start again . Soon we reached at our last point where we clicked some moments in our cameras. 

Camping:


Camp

Doing all these things we reached our camp which was in Shivpuri. In the camp we had taken our snacks. After we rested for some time. Around 9: 30 we had taken our dinner which was very delicious . Born fire, music, dance ,all happening around us . I was eagerly waiting for it, we all are full on mood . So first day was little tiring but a great day we had spend all together. WILL COME BACK WITH DAY -2  JOURNEY.
