What’s life without adventure? Isn’t the real purpose of life to travel, to experience new places, and witness the sunrise from new mountaintops? This thought is what united Jatin and Tarun over a cup of chai, in spite of being from two unrelated backgrounds (CA and IT). They knew each other since the time Jatin was helping Tarun learn the ways of the wilderness through weekend treks and outings with another traveling group. Their love for traveling and trekking together motivated them to start something of their own. Thus was born “Plan The Unplanned”, where travel goals come true. Under the Companies Act, Plan The Unplanned is incorporated as Unplanned Journeys Private Limited They started their journey on unsteady ground, much like any other company, but they shared an infatuation for travel and adventure with their customers, which amplified their determination, and thus, Plan the Unplanned family keeps getting bigger every day! Just about any travel idea can come alive with Plan The Unplanned…treks, adventure activities like rock climbing, kayaking, rafting, backpacking trips across the country, cultural outings, photo walks; everything that fellow travelers need, to explore the great outdoors together.

1. What is the best time for River Rafting in Rishikesh?
The best season for River Rafting is from September to mid-April. One should avoid the temperature of May and June as it becomes quite unnatural to regain the same essence.
2. Is there any age restriction for River Rafting in Rishikesh?
Yes, Kids below 14 years are not allowed to do river rafting in Rishikesh.
3. What will be the group size?
Usually, we take a maximum of 11 people in one group. We believe bigger groups have less fun and less coordination so that’s why we prefer smaller groups.
4. I am the only girl in the group, is it safe to travel solo?
Yes, definitely it is, the safety of girls is most important for us. All our guides and other staff are carefully chosen for trips. They are honest and reliable but we also advise you to take care of your personal belongings.
