Camping in Rishikesh

Take a break from the city and and head out to Rishikesh, the land swarming with mystics and adventure lovers. This campsite has something for everyone. First time adventurers can try their hand at the obstacle course, to warm up for their thrilling whitewater rafing the next day. The peace seekers can meditate on the banks of the river, or maybe do a spot of yoga. Families and groups can try their hand at the many sports that can be played here.

NOTE: The campsite is located about 100 metres away from the main road, so you'll have to park your cars and walk this distance.


Welcome to the Gateway to the Garhwal Himalayas, Rishikesh. This holy town has now become a paradise for adventure seekers from around the world with its many centres for white-water rafting and Himalayan trekking. It is here, in this land of meditation, that a luxurious stay in gorgeous Swiss tents awaits you. This campsite is ideally located just walking distance from the start point of the rafting. When you're not rafting, you can go swimming in the peaceful stretches of the flowing tributary of the river Ganges, and admire the views of distant mountains.
