  • Trip introduction

    Enjoy a rafting and camping getaway in Rishikesh for two nights and three days. This itinerary gives you plenty of time to enjoy your comfortable rafting camp in Rishikesh, as well as spend plenty of time outdoors. Try your hand at kayaking, rock-climbing and rappelling, or relaxing and taking in nature, depending on what you're looking for. The next day, you head out for a thrilling rafting session that pits you against Grade III and III+ rapids.

    IMPORTANT: This Rishikesh rafting trip is not a fixed departure trip. It requires a minimum of 2 pax for a booking confirmation.

    Destination

    Your rafting camp in Rishikesh is located near Beasi or Byasi. This is one of the finest spots in the Rishikesh region, for rafting and for camping, and you'll be the lucky ones to do both. The campsite is just across the road from the river, and you'll be able to walk to the water in just five minutes. The river is clean and refreshingly cool, perfect for swimming, kayaking and paddling, and the white sand beach is the perfect place to spend the day.

    Your tents are air-cooled, with comfortable beds inside. There are also dry pit toilets and showers with fresh running water at the campsite.
