• Trip introduction

    This rafting expedition takes you down the rapids of the Ganga and Alaknanda over 3 days, giving you a true outdoors experience! You'll spend the days paddling your rafts through peaceful stretches, tackling big rapids, and swimming in the cool river in the late afternoon. As dusk falls, your tents will be set up on pristine river beaches, and you'll enjoy a campfire and a hot dinner. At night, you'll sleep in tents with the river gurgling outside.

    IMPORTANT: This is not a fixed departure trip. It requires 3-6 travellers for a booking confirmation.

From here, you'll raft to Byasghat, which is a famous fishing spot, thanks to the gorgeous Golden Mahaseer in the river. You'll proceed the next day to Kaudiyala, tackling some of the most exciting rapids in the Ganges, including The Wall, Daniel's Dip, Three Blind Mice, and Cross Fire. The next day, you'll take on the stretch between Kaudiyala and NIM Beach, meeting rapids like Double Trouble, Initiation, Club House, and Golf Course.

    You will be camping in twin-triple sharing tents at night, with all camping equipment provided to you. Dry pit toilet tents will be set up for your convenience. All your belongings will be loaded into a separate raft and will be returned to you every evening. Anything you need on the raft will be stored in a dry bag.
