Riverside camping adventure in Rishikesh

Tropical birds and trees, lush pine forests and a river running gently by – all this and more await you on this delightful camping and rafting adventure. You’ll spend two happy days on a beautiful campsite, staying in canvas safari tents with comfortable cots and mattresses, indulging in a range of fun activities during the day, and relaxing in the evenings. As the night air grows colder, the stars come out, the mountains around you glow in the moonlight, and the bonfire blazes merrily, make these nights unforgettable.

But the next day, it's all about adventure! You'll face the rolling rapids of the Ganges on a thrilling 16 km stretch, covering some of the big rapids like Return to Sender, Golf Course, Double Trouble, Hilton, and more. At the end, you'll get to try out cliff-jumping, or do a little body-surfing and swimming in peaceful sections of the river.


Your jungle campsite is in the middle of the green Rajaji National Park, so you may expect to see a wide variety of Himalayan birds, animals and flora. The tents are comfortably equipped with two cots, soft foam mattresses, clean linen, polyfill quilts, and pillows. You'll be able to choose from a range of activities, including trekking to a waterfall nearby, going for a forest walk, playing volleyball or basketball, or just spending some quiet time.
