Why would you like to try it
The water sport I would like to try in future will be River Rafting. Although I do not know how to swim but river rafting is done by wearing safety jackets, so one does not drown in the water. It is an adventurous water sport. There are many other water sports like deep sea diving, jet ski, para sailing etc but I want to try this first. I learnt about river rafting from one of my best friends. He did River Rafting last year during the summers and he told me it is really exciting.
In my country people go to Rishikesh for white water rafting. It’s a beautiful town located in the state of Uttrakhand. People do rafting on Ganges River which flows between the Himalayan mountains. One can do rafting for 12 kilometers or 16 kilometers, Rafting is not a difficult sport, it can be done by people of all age groups.
But, you need to have an expert guide you because at some places it gets dangerous. That is why they provide safety equipment like helmets and life jackets to everyone. Rafting is done early in the morning. Each raft can carry approximately 6-8 people and a guide sits at the end. The raft is inflated using air and people paddle to drive it forward.
During the course, there are several rapids in the river which bring a lot of thrill. When raft goes through the rapids it gets very fast and can sometimes go up in the air as well. I want to try this sport because I have never tried adventure sports in my life and this water sport sounds really exciting to me. I will probably do rafting during the next summers.
