JNU’s River Rafting trip at Camp RapidFire documented [13-17 March 2009, Rishikesh]
This blog is a pictorial documentation of the Jawaharlal Nehru University Mountaineering Club’s Rishikesh river rafting trip [8 PM, 13 March 2009 to 5 AM, 17 March 2009]. We were a group of 21 people (including guests).
We stayed at the Camp RapidFire (Beach 18, Village Singthali, PO Byasi, Rishikesh, Uttarakhand; about 250 kms from Delhi) of the Questrails, hence the name of the blog ‘camprapidfire’! The trip was mind-blowing, to say the least: Swimming, Rafting, Travelling, Trekking, living in the lap of nature without electricity and whatnot!
Apart from documenting the river rafting (about 36 km) this blog also documents our brief trip to Rishikesh, Haridwar and Dev Sanskriti Vishvavidyalaya (DSVV), among other things.

All pics are highly compressed for easy uploading (which also compromises the quality). Besides, it is not advisable to put up high-resolution personal images on the internet. I am an amateur photographer and these pics are lacking in more ways than one. As if all this was not enough, you’ll find that my camera lens had some dirt thanks to my JNU Holi and JNU Caves expeditions!

This is an unofficial individual effort and has no relation to the JNU Administration.
I am thankful to every member of the trip who consented to my proposal of documenting this trip in this blog here.
I am hooked to travelling now and look forward to joining every programme by the JNUMC in future (subject to constraints of time).
Last but not the least, I want to thank everyone in the trip for making it a memorable episode in my life.
