    A relatively new sport in India, rafting has been on the adventure tourism map for decades now! There is nothing quite like the ‘pure energy high’ one gets from riding foaming white water rapids. At River Rapids and Mountain Trails Pvt. Ltd. we offer both rafting packages ranging from 1-3 days at our camp on the Ganges as well as self-contained river expeditions on various Indian rivers.
     At the camp, one can choose between 4 stretches of rafting between Devprayag and Rishikesh. Some sections with some fast action white water rapids, others more calm with ooportunities for plenty of budysurfing and birdwatching. Click here to know more about the rafting route and details for each of the rafting sections.
 
 


    Another water sport that smacks of ingenuity & individuality is kayaking. Gaining popularity in India, this is a one-person sport requiring a big heart & great love for the water.
At camp, we have our own kayaks with trained instructors to guide you while using the equipment and accompany you in case you would like to paddle around some placid stretches of the river around the camp. We also offer kayaking courses where one can learn the basics of kayaking and eventually attempt to surf through some white water rapids.

    Rappelling or Abseiling, is the controlled descent down a rope. Climbers use this technique when a cliff or slope is too steep or dangerous to descend without protection. Done with the help of carabiners, harnesses, descenders, anchor points and safety ropes, as a sport, rappelling offers great challenge and excitement for enthusiasts.

    The rappelling face at camp is approximately 50 ft high, a rock surface with good footholds and slight overhangs and our staff is proffessionally trained in usage of al equipment and all safety procedures.

 


    Rock climbing is a sport in which participants climb up or across natural rock formations or artificial rock walls. Rock climbing is a physically and mentally demanding sport, one that tests the participant's strength, endurance, agility, and balance along with his or her mental control and determination.

    Adjacent to the rappelling face, our natural rock climbing surface is also about 50ft with enough natural cracks and holds to encourage inexperienced enthusiasts as well as overhangs and tricky spots to challenge even the seasoned climbers.
 


    We have cliff jumping points ranging from 5ft to about 40 ft all along by the river side at the camp. Cliff jumping at the camp is with lifejackets, to keep you safe and encourage even the non swimmers, and in the presence of a safety kayaker to bring you back to shore. As an activity, it is an exhilerating experience as well as a challenge, leading to a great sense of achievement and overcoming fear.
 


    Unique to the camp, the hike to the water fall is an activity that truly makes the stay at camp unforgettable. A walk upstream in knee deep flowing water to reach a short 6 foot high waterfall, climbing over it with the help of a rope fighting against a hard current and then wading through to reach a larger waterfall is an experience that one will remember for a long time to come.
 


    The camp is surrounded by pristine forest with numerous trails and paths that one can wander on on foot. There are many villages scattered around within a 1-2 hours walking distance that can be visited and the natural surroundings offer great opportunity to spot some birds and wildlife. There are many caves as well as flowing streams that can be explored in the forest around. Hiking trips can be for a few hours, a full day or even 2-3 days with overnight stays organized in camps with all arrangements for meals as well as tents and sleeping bags.
 


    Evening campfires are a tradition at the camp and we have a dedicated camp fire area to gather in the evenings. We serve complimentary snacks at the bonfire and also offer vegetarian and non vegetarian barbeques on order.
