NOMAD - STUBBORN - MYSTIC
This is my first travelogue in this forum. Although I had joined a long time ago but I am not good in writing, so never written any travelogue till date. So lets not waste your time and I should directly write my story.

Me and my friend Vikas planned a short 2 day bike trip to Rishikesh and start our journey on 31st October @ 4:30Am.

We have a single bike (Bajaj Avenger 220- DTSi) and two bags with us. Below is basic information about the trip and essential items we carry in our quick trip.

Bike: Bajaj Avenger 220
Camera: Nikon DSlr
Travel Bags : 2
Total Distance Covered: 1300 KM
Petrol Consumption: 22 L

Around 8:00 am we cross Modi-nagar and take a break from ride for breakfast near Muzaffarnagar.


Ahoy.. Reached Haridwar (11:00 Am)
We parked our bike nearby the ganges and start roaming around the har ki pauri. We also visit Daksh Temple, which is dedicated to Lord Shiva and famous as their In-laws home and also visit Kalthal Gurudwara which is dedicated to Third Guru (Guru Amardas Ji) of Sikhs.

After taking bath in holy Ganges, and spend around 2-3 hours in Haridwar, we decide to move towards Rishikesh. Yes, of-course we also enjoy Allu-kachouri on Har ki Pauri (@Famous Chotiwala) before leaving..

Reached Rishikesh - Dev Bhumi (3:00pm)

There are so many option s to stay in Rishikesh but we decide to stay in gurudwwara sahib as it is located in middle of market and they have all kind of facilities for tourists and pilgrims who visit Rishikesh and Hemkunt sahib.

Near Shivpuri, there is a bridge to cross Ganges, you can enjoy very delicious pakoda and tea there. and there are stairs which you can use to reach to the bank of river.

We stay in Shivpuri till evening enjoying natural views in lap of ganges.

Day 2 Rishikesh to Delhi
As the day start, we pack our bags to ride towards Delhi, then our mind struck with idea of doing White Water Rafting.:supz:

We don,t waste time and contact a raft tour organizer for river rafting. :rock:

That was awesome experience.
We start rafting @ 10:30 Am (18Km trek). It had around 10 tides (4 Major). Around 1:30 pm we reached Rishikesh and completed our raft journey.

Time to backpack and ride go home
We start our return journey @2:00 pm from rishikesh. Till Roorkee, vikas drive the bike. We stop a little break after roorkee and have lunch and tea.

Then i ride the bike from roorkee to delhi and we reach home by 8:00pm.

Please share your suggestions and view on our journey, as this is my first travelogue i hope you people like it, Now waiting for next TRIP..:cool:
