Rishikesh travel companies’ relief initiative continues also after the flood

04/07/2013

The rain stopped, the sun is back and the Ganga water level is almost back to normal. But helicopters are still busy in the area in and around Rishikesh, and so are the people of Rishikesh who got together on their own initiatives to provide help in the mountains. Many villagers lost their houses, properties and often even their spouses and families. Help is urgently needed before the monsoon starts.

Here is the most recent press article about the relief initiative by some of Rishikesh’s travel agents, rafting experts and mountain expedition specialists who during their second rescue trip to the mountains teamed up with the owners of Jumping Heights who contributed their know how and expertise in building zip lines and rope bridges.
