There were plenty of photographers around; displaying their albums full of pictures of people posing dressed in traditional garb. The poses by some of the people, especially honeymoon couples, were absolutely hilarious!

We travelled 18km on the road upstream to reach the starting point.Then the guide gave us instructions regarding safety measures and the commands to be followed.
But rafting was nothing like I had imagined it to be. It was even more adventurous, awesome and very very tiring. Up close, the rapids are violent and the possibilities of mishap happening seem endless. The initial rapids were scary but we grew bolder with every passing one.Read More
सहस्त्रधारा में अंदर घुसते ही 10 रूपये/बाइक एंट्री फीस लगती है जो हमने दिया और अंदर चले गए. वहाँ जाकर हमने बाइक को एक दुकान के आगे खड़ा किया और दुकान वाले से दो लॉकर किराये पर लिया (50 रूपये एक लाकर ). अपना बैग और सामान लाकर के अंदर रखने के बाद हमने दुकान वाले को चाय नाश्ता के लिए बोला और पानी में नहाने के लिए चले गए.
अंदर पानी बहुत ही ठंडा था और वहाँ पर स्थानीय लोगो ने जगह-जगह दिवार बनायी थी इसलिए वह किसी स्विमिंग पूल की तरह दिख रहा था.
थोड़ी देर नहाने के बाद हम लोगो ने सहस्त्रधारा किनारे बैठ के चाय और परांठे खाये।

While planning for the route, we had no idea about the Saharanpur road conditions and more worse was leaving the highway for a while, anyway, next 40 kms or so were on kind of worse unending roads. You can imagine the roads with the fact that I was not driving straight literally even for a second and there was no road at all but just potholes filled with mud and water. We all were literally praying that when this road would come to an end cursing the local SP MLA.Read More
