  • Trip introduction

    The thundering rapids of the Ganges have invited adventure enthusiasts to battle the thrilling rapids for years now. On this trip, you'll be rafting from Shivpuri to Rishikesh with trained guides and professional equipment. It is a 16 kms stretch and takes 2-3 hours to complete, and you'll meet famous rapids like Roller Coaster, Golf Course, and Club House. Once you float into more peaceful waters, you'll be able to do some cliff jumping, body surfing, and swimming. Expect some big waves and hydraulics on this moderate intensity rafting adventure that can be undertaken by non-swimmers as well. This package also includes one night's stay in eco-tents on the banks of the gurgling Huel River, with a bonfire evening.

    Destination

    Rishikesh is one of the best destinations for rafting in India, and attracts adventure travellers from around the world. The churning waters of the Ganges gush down from the Himalayas, fed by glaciers and melting snow, offering big splashes and hydraulics to test your mettle. Located around 50 kms from the nearest airport in Dehradun, your campsite is nestled at a peaceful location, away from the city. You'll be staying in eco-tents on the banks of the Huel River, with plenty to do during the day, and blazing bonfires to gather around at night.
