  • Trip introduction

    Live along the banks of the Alaknanda, with the sound of the river in the background. You'll have plenty to do, from chilling on the banks of the river to exploring the forests that fringe it. The days are filled with adventure activities and outdoor scenery, and in the evenings, when the night grows cold, a crackling bonfire sets the mood for a singsong session or a barbeque.

    This package does not include the cost of your adventure activities. Instead, you can decide what you want to do and pay on location. Every day, you can choose from a range of activities like rafting, rappelling, kayaking, local walks, village explorations, or just decide to spend time in the lap of nature.

    You'll live in Swiss tents, with a permanent roof and ensuite washrooms to shelter you from the elements. Inside your tent, you have queen size beds, luggage racks, side tables, and a coffee table and chairs. However, you'll probably spend most of your time on the delightful private sit-out that looks over the river. NOTE: To book this package, you need a minimum of two persons.

    Destination

    This delightful lodge lies about 90 km from Rishikesh, along the banks of the Alaknanda. The emerald waters with their white sand beaches contrast perfectly against the greenery around. And you'll be right in the midst of all this beauty, enjoying bonfires and falling asleep to the sounds of nature outside. The location offers you temples, forest trails, local village walks and more, but the highlight is the adventure activities available. The river has stretches of tumbling rapids on which you can go whitewater rafting, but there are calmer stretches where you can try kayaking, body surfing or swimming.
