Days after the Uttarakhand government lifted restrictions on the entry of tourists, adventure tourism resumed in the state on Saturday.  400 thrill-seekers — many from Delhi-NCR, Uttar Pradesh, and Haryana — flocked to Rishikesh to enjoy rafting on the gushing waters of the Ganga.


While the average turnout of tourists pre-pandemic was more than 1,000 a day, operators said even 400 visitors should be considered a “bumper footfall” given that the country is still grappling with Covid-19.
