Camping and Rafting on the Ganga

The rafting season begins late September and continues through till end April. The camps and the lodges that I use on the Ganga offer a great trip for all, families, singles, couples and corporates. Contact for details and start planning.

Plan early to book trains / flights and travel to head up as painlessly as possible.  The  the closest rail head is Hardwar and the airport is Jolly Grant, that serves Dehra Dun, Hardwar and Rishikesh. Transfers to and from both venues to camp and back can be organized and are charged on actuals.

State of the art equipment and in house logistics ensure a safe trip

When you wish to visit us, do take the trouble to find out where you are headed! Our Camps are set in the middle of Reserved Forest Areas, and it is a thorough privilege to be so close to nature. We are not a hotel, do not have electricity, heating or refrigeration, and we adhere strictly to eco-guidelines of no bright lights, no loud music, meal timings and no campfires during the fire season. Camp is run, not by hotel school graduates, but by the same guides that ensure a safe river or mountain trip for you. We do not have room service.  We provide you with a clean tent with beds to sleep in, healthy meals each day and a fun day of activity.

Bottomline, if you wish to visit us, come with the purpose of living by India’s holiest life force, the Ganga, surrounded by Reserved forests, for the call of the barking deer, or the midnight roar of the leopard ; not for creature comforts that we take for granted, coming from the city.
It will help you enjoy your holiday better, and we appreciate guests who realise this opportunity to commune with nature.
