Rishikesh camping adventure

On this rafting trip in Rishikesh, you'll take the plunge with a 16-km rafting session on the Ganges and spend the night in tents pitched on a mountainside campsite. You’ll don your life jackets and paddle your way over rapids rated grade II and III for an exhilarating experience on the holy Ganges. En route, you’ll participate in fun river activities with cliff jumping, body surfing and swimming. Another highlight of your trip, you’ll spend the night in Swiss tents pitched at a serene campsite. Adorned with the rich greenery of the mountains around Rishikesh, the campsite offers beautiful views of the Ganga River and a fun trekking experience in the jungles.


Placed on a mountain ridge overlooking the holy Ganges, the campsite is located in the small village of Kaudiyala, just 40 kms outside Rishikesh. The campsite offers spectacular views of mountain slopes around the Ganges and camping in Swiss tents pitched under a twinkling night sky. The village of Kaudiyala has become a popular destination for campers looking for an off-beat stay in Rishikesh because of serene waterfront views of the Ganga River and beautiful hills painted with shades of green and brown.
