  • Trip introduction

    Raft the Ganges from Kaudiyala to Nim beach, all of 35 kms of frothing, foaming rapids! River rafting on the Ganges is one of the most sought-after adventure sports in India, and this all-day itinerary gives you the full experience.

    You'll be battling multiple Grade III-IV rapids for about 6 hours. There are stretches of calm water where you can get used to your equipment, and then take on legendary rapids like Return to Sender, Roller Coaster, and more. The Grade IV rapids can sometimes flip your raft over, so be prepared to get soaked! Closer to its source, the river is at its pristine best, so you also get to cliff jump and swim in the river.

    This trip includes lunch, soft drinks, snacks, and water. Dry bags are provided on each raft for your valuables. IMPORTANT: A minimum of 6 travellers is required to confirm this booking.

    Destination

    The green waters of the Ganges provide one of the best rafting experiences in India. The seething water offers thrilling action, with big splashes and flipper rapids (they'll flip your boat over!), and lots of excitement. There are also calmer sections that give you time to rest your aching arms and admire the beautiful views around. At the end, you'll stop for lunch at a scenic spot with cliffs to jump off from, and a chance to swim in the tranquil water.
