This is another small paragraph.

  • Trip introduction

    If you've been rafting before and loved it, then this beginner's expedition is perfect for you! You'll spend three thrilling days rafting down the Ganges, camping on the sands beside the river for two nights, and enjoying a complete outdoor experience.

    On your first day, you'll be driven to your first camp, where you'll spend time getting used to your raft, equipment and the river. You'll warm up on some easy rapids, meet the rest of your team of travellers, and enjoy the rest of the day swimming and body-surfing. For the next two days, you'll be rafting about 30 kms on grade 3 and grade 3+ rapids like Three Blind Mice (3+), Cross Fire (3), Roller Coaster (3+), Golf Course (3+) and Clubhouse (3). Each day involves about 4-5 hours of rafting, and every night, you'll camp out under the stars, ending the day beside a bonfire.

    What happens to your luggage?

    Anything not needed for the trip can be safely stored in Rishikesh at the supplier's office. Pack light, only taking what you need, into a soft backpack for your three days on the river. This will be carried in dry bags on a kayak, and will be handed to you at each campsite.

    IMPORTANT: This is not a fixed departure trip. It requires a minimum of 6 travellers for a booking confirmation.

    Destination

    Surrounded by the Himalayan ranges, Rishikesh is a small town that offers spectacular views of jungle-clad hills. It is also the place where the River Ganga and Chandrabhaga meet. You'll begin the trip from Devprayag, where two rivers meet to form the Ganga. This is a long stretch within a rocky gorge, so you can expect some spectacular landscape. The campsites are located on the white beaches of the river, so you'll spend all your time in or on the river. As you head towards Rishikesh, you'll battle bigger rapids, with even one Grade IV rapid close to your beach campsite! This rapid is great fun, and topples most boats, but you'll be able to swim back easily to the beach.

    Destination highlights

    • Earn bragging rights by taking part in a rafting expedition
    • Raft down the Ganges, through rocky gorges, past white beaches and beautiful scenery
    • Battle through Grade III and III+ rapids
    • Camp at night on riverside beaches in tents

  • Expedition Day 1

    Make sure you report by 08:00 hrs so so you can begin your drive on time. It's a three-hour drive through Bagwan, so you'll get to see a lot of this region. At Devprayag, you'll meet your guides for the expedition, as well as the rest of the team. The preparation for the first day takes some time, and then you'll take your first steps into the water. Enjoy an easy first day, navigating through easy rapids that run entirely inside a gorge. The walls are rocky and tower above you, making this a dramatic first day. You'll reach the campsite soon, and then settle into tents. Enjoy the rest of the day swimming or admiring the views.

    Expedition Day 2

    Today you'll raft for a full 30 kms down the river. This should take about 4 hours, and will take you over Grade III and III+ rapids. As you approach the end of your rafting, just near the campsite, you'll encounter a Grade IV rapid. You can expect to be tossed into the river, unless you've picked up excellent rafting skills, but you can swim to the beach from here.
