  • Trip introduction

    On this 5 day escapade, you'll spend two nights at a riverside campsite in Rishikesh, and then move to a hillside campsite in Kanatal, giving you the complete Himalayan experience.

    You'll participate in one of the best river rafting experiences in India, combined with the thrill of cliff jumping and swimming in the holy Ganges. For two hours, you'll bump up and down over the waves of the Ganges as you raft over a 16-km stretch. Apart from rafting, you'll also participate in a range of adventure activities like Burma Bridge, rappelling, rock-climbing and valley crossing. Another highlight of this trip, you'll embark on a guided trek to Surkanda Ascent, at 10,000 feet, offering gorgeous views of the Greater Himalayas! This one's a complete mountain and river adventure!

    Please note that a minimum of 4 travellers are required to book this 5-day Rishikesh rafting and trekking trip.

    Destination

    The first part of your adventure is at a delightful riverside campsite at Rishikesh, located inside a national park. The sound of the river fills the air, lulling you to sleep at night. There are mountains all around, and the weather is pleasant, even cool in the evenings. For the next two nights, you'll be moved to a hillside campsite in Kanatal, about 70 kms away. Here, you'll stay amidst beautiful pine and oak forests, with closer views of the mountains and lush greenery all around.

    You'll stay in comfortable tents with bedding, neat western/Indian toilets with flush and running water. Apart from your thrilling rafting session, you may explore the forests with short hikes. The campsite hosts a bonfire, every night where you can gather and have fun. Alternatively, you can also head out for the Ganga Aarti ceremony at Rishikesh.

    Destination highlights

    • Camp beside the Ganges and in a forest, the best of both Himalayan experiences.
    • Spend a morning battling the rapids in a raft.
    • Try out rappelling, cliff-jumping, body-surfing, rock-climbing and more.
