The actress also shares what activities you should try or places you should visit in Rishikesh:
Rafting – The first activity Shenaz listed in her post is river rafting. Most people always make it a point to indulge in this sport as it is one of the popular water adventures out there. Shenaz tried grade 5 rafting, which is at the expert level.
Laxman Jhula – The actor can be seen posing at Laxman Jhula, another famous tourist spot. This bridge has a rich history and is built across the river Ganges. According to Hindu mythology, the bridge was built where Lord Rama’s brother Lakshmana was crossing the river with a jute rope.
Neer Falls Trek: Neer Falls is a short drive from Laxman Jhula. If you enjoy exploring new things, trekking to Neer Falls should be on your bucket list.
