Different Grades of Rapids

The rapids are classified from Grade I to VI, based on the level of difficulty in manoeuvrability. In Rishikesh, however, there are rapids up to grade V only. People who are not extremely good at swimming, must not try rafting with rapids of grade III and more.

Grade I Rapids

Grade I Rapids are easiest to navigate, with mild current and no risk involved.

Grade II Rapids are rapids where obstacles or rocks are distinctively apart and provide a clear passage and easy manoeuvre.

Grade III Rapids

Grade III Rapids are quite technical and require good judgement by the guide.

Grade IV Rapids

Grade IV Rapids offer the real thrill of river rafting and are very tricky. The waves are powerful enough to topple the raft.

Grade V Rapids

Grade V Rapids can be quite dangerous. Only lucky ones will be able to get through them without being toppled by the strong waves.

Grade VI Rapids

Grade VI Rapids are those that are believed to be suicidal as they are extremely hard to manoeuvre. Luckily, there aren’t any in Rishikesh.

The rapids are classified from Grade I to VI, based on the level of difficulty in manoeuvrability. In Rishikesh, however, there are rapids up to grade V only. People who are not extremely good at swimming, must not try rafting with rapids of grade III and more.

Grade II Rapids are rapids where obstacles or rocks are distinctively apart and provide a clear passage and easy manoeuvre.

Grade III Rapids

Grade III Rapids are quite technical and require good judgement by the guide.

Grade IV Rapids

Grade IV Rapids offer the real thrill of river rafting and are very tricky. The waves are powerful enough to topple the raft.

Grade V Rapids

Grade V Rapids can be quite dangerous. Only lucky ones will be able to get through them without being toppled by the strong waves.
