The whole expedition is planned around experiencing the river and its natural habitat in a very exclusive manner.
The trip has all the ingredients of a leisurely camping experience with nature lovers as well as adrenaline pumping action while negotiating whitewater rapids with one of the most experienced teams in the country. Rapids encountered would rate up to class III+ to class IV.
Note: minimum 8 persons are required for the trip.

During our rafting journey we would pass Devprayag, which is one of the five holy prayags (confluences) on the Alaknanda river, and has great significance to the Hindu devotees. It is here that the Bhagirathi and Alaknanda rivers confluence to form the Ganga or Ganges.
Our trips are operated in an Eco-friendly manner, following leave no trace principles. The rafting expedition would be supported by experienced safety kayakers / river guides, and the team would be outfitted with good quality gear matching international standards. The camping experience would be complete with kitchen and mess facilities catering to good quality and nutritious freshly prepared meals.
Things to Carry
Drive 70 kms from Rishikesh to Devprayag in the morning. After a comprehensive safety briefing and packing the bags on the raft, we head out on the water. We start the trip on Devprayag. An easy day with small rapids. Great day to relax, soak in the sun, body surf and bird-watching. Raft time is approximately 35 kms to Kaudiyala. Set up camp for the night on a beach at Kaudiyala or at some forest camp (whichever will be available at that time).
After breakfast, we will start our rafting expedition from Kaudiyala. Raft down adrenaline pumping rapids like 'Daniel's Dip', 'The Wall', 'Three Blind Mice', 'Crossfire', 'Bodysurfing', 'Return to Sender', 'Roller Coaster', 'Golf Course', and lots of smaller ones too. We stop to have lunch and then continue to encounter the big rapids on the River Ganga. We end the trip just before the famous Laxman Jhula (NIM Beach) in Rishikesh.
