Adventure Trip Itinerary for Rafting Expedition in Shivpuri Uttarakhand

Updated on October 12, 2010

How about a rafting expedition in Shivpuri? I think that is a far better way to experience rafting, as you get to feel the real outdoors staying in a beach camp resort and then doing day trips is just a miniscule of the experience. Real experience is when you are with the team in setting up expedition tents, hauling fire wood, staying on wild river beaches with friends, enjoying your favorite beer with your girlfriend, etc. Also, it is a good opportunity to make new friends, learn more about the ones you already know. You will also get to know a lot more about yourself, your strengths and fears and you will get a chance to overcome them at the same time.

And the great news is that the above things are possible because of an overwhelming response for river rafting and camping in Shivpuri. There are many trips planned for next year 2011 and here are a few itineraries for adventure trip to Shivpuri.
