  • Trip introduction

    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 three 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 24 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. You'll return to the campsite after your rafting to spend the night in the midst of paradise.
