I am visiting rishikesh in January 3rd week and planning to do white water rafting. Will the water be too cold or will it be ok?

Needless to mention that the water would be cold in Jan, but that won't affect the rafting.

Day3 Transfer to Pahalgam, enroute - Awantipura ruins. Check-in to hotel. Afternoon – strolling on the bank of river Lidder.

Day4 Pahalgam – Aru, Chandanbari and Betaab Valley. Evening – transfer to Srinagar. Check-in to hotel.

Day5 Srinagar - Mughal Gardens, Hazratbal, Sankaracharya Temple. Afternoon - shopping.
