River RaftingRiver Rafting
Ever thought floating down the river could be fun ? It is when you go through rapids and small water falls, fighting the waves, feeling the sheer exhilaration of coming up toppers with complete safety.

A more personal form of rafting is the kayak in which you are on a one to one basis with the water, learn to make the Kayak/Canoe to respond to your every command, enabling you to move about like an eel through the water.

The snow fed waters of the river Yamuna. Its current before it plungs into the plains… have all helped to bring white water river rafting to Haryana. In the stretch from Paonta Sahib to Hathnikund in Haryana, the river Yamuna is filled with rapids of I and II degree intensity, which are ideal for amateurs.

Rafting down the Yamuna is a splendid experience. The rafters travel past the petering hills of lower Himalays: Meander past quit stretches of the Yamuna, Fringed by forest, maneuvering rapids and shallows, till the flat lands of Kalesar arrive. The presence of the Kalesar Sal forest reserve and the Tajewala water-works close at hand, have oCanoeingpened some of the most splendid possibilities of Adventure holidays.

Canoeing
A delightful variation in water sport is canoeing and kayaking. When days are sultry, the sport beckons. For the one who craves to exercise, there is nothing like an half hour with a kayak.

The sport can be done as two-some or alone with the safety of strapped-on life jacket. At each water front, there are experienced life guards to watch against adverse eventualities. Special water sport activities can be planned for students at Tikkar Tals at Morni Hills, Grey Pelican Yamuna Nagar and Damdama Lake.
