If you are planning to go to Rishikesh on the day of Holi and do river rafting in the river Ganges, then this news can be disappointing for you. Because, this time on the day of Holi i.e. March 8, there will be a ban on river rafting in Rishikesh. This decision was taken given the crowd gathered here (River Rafting On Holi). Because the tourist season has started and there are already tourists from India and abroad in Rishikesh and all the hotels are full.
In such a situation, it is a big challenge for the administration to conduct Holi peacefully and to control the crowd.
River rafting will remain closed on Holi (Rishikesh River Rafting Close On Holi)
According to reports, this decision has been taken with the consent of the businessmen, district administration and police officials associated with Rishikesh rafting. Ever since river rafting started in Rishikesh, since then a large number of people come here for rafting on the day of Holi. In such a situation, this will be the first time that rafting in the river Ganga will be closed on the day of Holi.
Why this decision was taken
The members of the Rafting Association in Police Station Munikireti had earlier held a meeting in this regard with Inspector-in-Charge Ritesh Shah. Ritesh Shah told that on the day of Holi, people create a lot of hues and cry here. Apart from this, many people are also intoxicated with alcohol. In such a situation, there should not be any accidents during rafting, so rafting has been banned on the day of Holi.
A crowd of tourists gathered in Rishikesh
On Holi, a large number of tourists from India and abroad reach the pilgrimage city of Rishikesh and enjoy river rafting. In such a situation, all the hotels, resorts, and camps of the pilgrimage city have already been booked on the occasion of Holi and tourists from all over the country and abroad continue to come to the pilgrimage city of Rishikesh.
That's why the administration has also made it clear that rafting is prohibited in the river Ganges on the day of Holi and strict action will be taken if anyone is found doing so.
