  • Trip introduction

    Head to this idyllic adventure resort, for a short taste of a mountain paradise, and a thrilling rafting session on the Ganges. Surrounded by blooming landscaped gardens and forests scented of pine, this retreat is 30 minutes away from the crowds of Rishikesh, and just a 10 minute walk from the Ganges. This is the section of the river where the water runs clear and cool, and you'll be tempted to go for a paddle. The resort has a fun ropes course, plenty of trails for solo rambles through nature, and the mountains in the distance.

    You'll be enjoying a thrilling 16 kms stretch of rafting, from Shivpuri to Laxman Jhulla. This 2-hour session takes you through 7 of the most iconic Grade 3 and 3+ rapids, like Roller Coaster, Golf Course, Club House, and more.

    Spend the day in the outdoors, trying your hand at all the adventures that Rishikesh has to offer (or even just reading a book on the lawns, with a cup of French press coffee). In the evening, when temperatures drop, enjoy a blazing campfire with tasty snacks, dig in to a hot dinner, and retire to bed in your comfortable, air-conditioned rooms.

    Destination

    You'll be staying in deluxe rooms at this boutique resort close to Rishikesh.

The resort has a charming bistro where you'll eat your meals, and can rustle up anything from French Press coffee to palak paneer or chicken tikka.
