    Celebrate New Year 2019 with an adventure-packed day in Rishikesh. You'll spend the night of 31st December at a river beach campsite, trying your hand at kayaking, rock-climbing and rappelling, or relaxing with beautiful views of the Ganges.

    The next day, you head out for a thrilling rafting session that pits you against Grade III and III+ rapids. You'll be rafting from Marine Drive to Laxman Jhula, covering 26 kms in 4 hours, battling rapids like Three Blind Mice, Roller Coaster, Golf Course, and Clubhouse.
