  • Trip introduction

    Welcome the New Year at a serene riverside campsite, with veg cocktail snacks, a merry bonfire, and a DJ party! The next morning, you'll battle 16 kms of exciting rapids on the Ganges, taking on some of the big ones Good Morning, Black Money, Return to Sender, and more. At the end, you'll head to a peaceful stretch where you can try body surfing, cliff jumping and swimming. There's no better way to begin 2018!

    Apart from rafting, you'll camp in cosy tents, explore the waterfall nearby, go for swims in the river, and try out rope bridges and other adventure activities on the campsite. If you're in the mood for some quiet time, take a snooze in a hammock while the sounds of the river soothes you to sleep.

    IMPORTANT: There is hardly any cellphone network coverage at this site, and you will be about 30 minutes away from the nearest marketplace. Do come prepared for a complete break from it all!

    Destination

    This camp is located at a distance of 8 kms from Rishikesh, on the banks of a river, and next to a hill. It provides beautiful views of both, and has charming hammocks, resting spots and common areas to enjoy the peace. There is a 10 minute walk from the roadside to the campsite, along the river, so you can imagine how far you'll be from any manmade sounds and noise pollution. The campsite is equipped with canvas safari tents that are sealed and carpeted to offer you a pleasant stay, as well as a dining tent, and on-site activities like volleyball, cricket, pool table, and more.
