Client's Feedback

Garhwal Trek "Thank you for the amazing trek. It was, for sure, one of my life's greatest adventures. We were lucky to see the Snow Bear and to go through many villages. The beautiful mountains, the people and the organization were all good, but most of all I would like to say that without Dipen (Guide) this trek would not be nearly as good as it was with him! His experience, calmness and knowledge are great. Dipen is by far the best guide I have traveled with." Andreas Gleason, Vancouver, Canada

GARHWAL ADVENTURE

River Rafting in India & Rishikesh

The Indian sub-continent perhaps had the largest network of rivers in the world. The northern rivers with their origins in the lofty Himalayas provide an exciting adventure for the white water enthusiasts. These rivers race, surge, whirl, froth and crash over and around boulders, as though rushing to get to the freedom of the Great Plains, rejoicing in their escape from captivity of the mountains.

Of all the rivers, Ganga is the most beautiful river. The mighty Ganges originates from Gaumukh in Garhwal region of the Himalayas. It is a superb river for inflatable rafts. Rafting on its water of wisdom is certainly an unusual experience. To ride these rapids and to come to terms with their strength and wildness is to grow in spirit and to nurture the very stuff that dreams are made of.

Rafting Expertise
We have latest self-bailing rafts with hand picked river guides, fleet of card for pickups and drops and above all a team of young energetic professionals to make your entire stay at our "CAMP" a memorable one. Our river guides are experienced and friendly. The rafting adventure planned in such a manner, which lets you enjoy all the fun and thrills while we attend to all other aspects.

Tips for River Rafting

1) You should carry your small items in boxes so that it not replaced.
2) You should carry a first aid box with you and necessary medications such as bee-sting kits, insulin, inhalers, etc.
3) Avoid carrying small items like cell phones, wallets and car keys.
4) You should also carry sunglasses with strap so that it doesn't fall and to protect your eyes from ultra violet rays and sunscreen to protect your skin. Disposable waterproof cameras are easily available, easy to take along with you and take good quality pictures.
5) Rafting clothes you should carry during summer are nylon shorts, simple swimsuit, sport shoes or sandals, and a hat. During spring and autumn you require some additional clothing. Don't wear cotton cloths while rafting, except in summers as cotton takes away the warmth from your body. Materials like wool, polyester, nylon and other synthetic materials will keep you warmer and will dry faster than cotton.
