Floating huts on Tehri Lake, Swiss tents and other water adventure activities are the main highlights of the festival. Eight bloggers from different parts of the country have reached Tehri to promote the festival through their blogs.

As part of the water activities, the tourists will have the opportunity to enjoy river rafting, boating, jet skiing, surfing and canoeing.

The Chief Minister also released a book titled Purana evam Vartaman Tehri on the occasion.
