• Trip introduction

    Bring in the new year in Rishikesh, on the banks of the Ganges, the most holy river in India. This idyllic resort in Rishikesh takes you away from the crowds of tourists into a peaceful riverside paradise. During the day, you can play badminton, archery, or darts, or you could do a trek to a waterfall nearby. In the evening, when the temperature drops, you'll gather around a blazing bonfire and enjoy the cool air. For the 31st night, you'll have a memorable night with a blazing bonfire, a DJ or live band, and veg and non-veg snacks.

    NOTE: This New Year camping package does NOT include rafting. You can book a rafting session for an additional INR 850 per person if you wish. This includes one 16 kms stretch on the Ganges, ending with cliff jumping and body surfing.


    This pretty resort is located at Neelkanth, on the banks of the river Heule, with river facing sit-outs dotted all over the campsite so you can enjoy the views. Each cottage faces the river, and has attached washrooms and soft beds. At the campsite, you'll be able to try out on-camp activities like badminton, archery, and turnball. There's a waterfall that is a short distance away, and of course, the river is ideal for paddling in.
