    Are there specific areas that we can travel by canoe? I'm also looking for rental places along the routes. I've heard people can canoe in Vihigaon but are there other places as well that are canoe tourist friendly?

    Kerala is a great place for canoeing, especially if you are a beginner. If you stay at a resort, you should be able to receive quality instruction from hired guides. One can canoe through both lush natural areas and get glimpses of life in small rural villages.

    Another great place for canoeing is Uttaranchal. Corbett National Park, which has the Ramgaga River, is located there. This is also a great place for moderate hiking.
    Whitewater canoeing is offered in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Canoeing tournaments are held in the capital city of Srinagar.

    Srinagar is commonly called 'the Venice of the East' because many people there live along the water. It has a number of places for canoeing. Dal Lake is called 'the Jewel of Srinagar.' Other popular places for canoeing in Srinagar include Manasbal Lake and Nagin Lake.

    Whitewater canoeing has gained popularity in Darjeeling. However, the rapids are so rough that only the most experienced can handle the Rangeet River.
