  • Waist Pouch – Instead of hunting for small-small things in your backpack, make sure you carry all your money, phones and other tiny things in a waist pouch. Also, a waist pouch reduces risk of losing things.

How to Reach Manali

By Air:The closest airport to Manali is at Bhuntar, found roughly 50 kilometers far from Manali. Domestic flights join Bhuntar with Delhi and Chandigarh. Once at the air terminal, you can take a pre-paid taxi to Manali. Be that as it may, owing to climate conditions, flights are not the most dependable alternative for getting to or out of Manali

By Bus:Manali is very much joined with popular tourist destinations like Leh, Shimla, Kullu, Dharamshala and New Delhi by a system of state-run transport and also private transport system. The transport venture from Delhi to Manali is 550 kilometers, and it is suggested to book your tickets in the air-conditioned Volvo coaches, as these buses are more comfortable keeping in mind the long journey.

Road/Self:The drive up to Manali is simply amazing! You can get grand looks of the bordering mountains and valleys from each turn that the twisty tough street tosses you in. Despite the fact that a great deal of vacationers incline toward a self-drive up to Manali, it is fitting to procure a taxi in the event that you are not happy with driving in rocky areas.

Things to Keep in Mind

1. Follow the instructions:Your instructor is your life saver, so it is wise to hear him out. He knows precisely what you ought to do and when to do it too. Normal things that you will hear amid your float will be: forward, quick forward, incline left/right, sit in/out. So, brace up and do what you are being told to do.

2. Hold onto your life jacket:White water rafting is most likely one of the best adventure experience that one can take up. Whether you are an amateur or a veteran, the rush of rafting never shows signs of change. No doubt rafting surprisingly can be nerve-wrecking activity. A decent quality life jacket can deal with around 110-150kgs of weight, which means regardless of the possibility that you fall in the water, your life jacket will offer you some assistance in staying above water.

3. Use Feet forward technique while floating in water:In spite of the fact that the possibilities of falling into the water while river rafting in Manali are off chance especially if you are in Grade II, still if you tumble, you ought to hop into your raft, if not then maintain your feet forward. The trick is to stay comfortably on “top” of the water: this can offer you some assistance against getting stuck between rocks or suspicious gorges. It’s best to go with the flow, and never attempt standing in the water.

4. Wear what is right for the activity:Since you will be spending extended period of time in the waters, it is likely that you will feel chilly regardless of the fact that the climate is hot. The best thing to do is to wear clothes that can get dry effortlessly. Materials like polyester and capilene dry quickly and also keep your skin dry and warm.

5. Use an effective Sunscreen:Long hours of staying in water and sun can leave you with major tanning. Also, the sunburns that you get from rafting takes a long time to go. So, it is a good idea to apply a good amount of waterproof sunscreen with maximum SPF on the exposed areas. We recommend you do a thorough research as to know what kind of sunscreen suits your body before going for something that might give you an allergic reaction.

Rafting is an Adventurous but safe Activity. You will be geared up with proper instruments before getting to River.
But You should be aware of what to expect and mentally prepare for some real time situation.

Handle the ropes of Raft tightly so you don't flow with river's water.

Rafting is a fun filled and thrilling adventure, and every adventurous activity involves some level of risk. Hence, it is necessary that proper precautions are taken. One should definitely enjoy the experience of white water rafting, but also abide by the rules and regulations mentioned, to avoid any kind of mishap.

Several non-swimmers go for white water rafting. Thorough, safety measures are taken; participants have to mandatorily wear the ‘life vest’ or personal flotation device (PFD).The guides who accompany you are well-trained for any necessary rescue missions, thus taking care of your comfort zone.

Rafting involves going up or down the river in a raft, especially paddle rafts. This means moving the boat requires manual power; one has to be reasonably healthy to do that. It is okay to consult a doctor, if your mind is flooded with doubts and queries regarding the same.

One should preferably wear a swim suit, a t-shirt and shorts is also acceptable. It is recommended that you avoid wearing cotton. Do not wear flip-flops; one can wear old tennis shoes, river shoes or water shoes. Also carry extra pair of clothes and a towel.

It is very rare to fall out of the boat, but if you can swim it is one of the exhilarating experiences. Avoid getting off the boat, because no matter how exciting it seems, it leads to disorientation. Do not panic, if you fall accidently and follow your guide’s instructions in such situation.

Yes, you can bring your camera or video camera along, but at your own risk. There will be a professional photographer who would accompany your group. In case, you don’t wish to carry your personal cameras, feel free to purchase these photographs. These photos would also be available online on the website.

The best time to go rafting is anytime between the months of September to June, especially May and June. Rafting is closed during the rainy season. One can enjoy the thrill of this adventure with family and friends anytime, but during rains.

The answer, to this question varies as per the trip chosen. Because rules and regulations are specific to each river, depending upon the risk factors involved. If there is no particular age limit specified, then children and elderly should feel free to enjoy rafting.
