  • Trip introduction

    Take yourself down to the Ganges for a thrilling half-day of rafting! This trip takes you from Shivpuri to NIM beach, for 2 hours on 16 kms of frothing, foaming rapids! You will take on battling multiple Grade II-III rapids, meeting the big ones, like Return to Sender, Roller Coaster, Club House, Jail No Bail, and more. The rafting here is safe, but you can expect some big waves and hydraulics. There are stretches with calm pools of green water, where you can go cliff-jumping and swimming.

    Dry bags are provided on each raft for your valuables. This package also includes snacks and a soft drink.

    IMPORTANT: A minimum of 6 travellers is required to confirm this booking.


    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 Grade III and III+ rapids, 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 snacks at a scenic spot with cliffs to jump off from, and a chance to swim in the tranquil water.

    • Go for 2 hours of rafting action on the Ganges
