  • Trip introduction

    This idyllic resort in Rishikesh takes you away from the crowds of tourists into a peaceful riverside paradise. Each cottage here faces the river, so you can choose to sit out on your private balcony and relax if you like. During the day, you can do a light game of badminton, archery, or darts, or you could do a trek to a waterfall nearby. In the evening, when the temperatures drop, you'll gather around a blazing bonfire and enjoy the cool air.

    On Day 2, you'll head out for your big big rafting adventure, when you'll battle the churning rapids of the Ganges. This 16 kms stretch ends with a session of cliff jumping and body surfing.

    Destination

    This pretty resort is located at Neelkanth, far enough from the crowds of tourists but close enough that you can go rafting. You'll be staying on the banks of the river Heule, with river facing sit-outs dotted all over the campsite so you can enjoy the views. Each cottage faces the river, and has attached washrooms and soft beds. At the campsite, you'll be able to try out on-camp activities like badminton, archery, and turnball. There's a waterfall that is a short distance away, and of course, the river is ideal for paddling in.
