  • Trip introduction

    This riverside jungle camp adventure takes you away from the noise and the bright lights of the city. Instead, on this 1 night and 2 day package, you'll spend a day in the midst of greenery, birdsong, and nature. Evenings at the campsite are romantic, fun-filled and exciting. The starlit sky, the chilly air, the silhouette of the mountains, and the gentle sound of the river, combined with a bright bonfire make this a night you'll want to repeat.

    But the next day, it's all about adventure! You'll face the rolling rapids of the Ganges on a thrilling 16 km stretch, covering some of the celebrity rapids like Return to Sender, Golf Course, Double Trouble, Hilton, and more. At the end, you'll get to try out cliff-jumping, or do a little body-surfing and swimming in peaceful sections of the river.

    Destination

    Your jungle campsite is in the middle of the green Rajaji National Park, so you may expect to see a wide variety of Himalayan birds, animals and flora. The cottages are cosy, comfortably equipped with soft beds, attached washrooms with running water, and a power back-up for electricity. You'll be able to choose from a range of activities, including trekking to a waterfall nearby, going for a forest walk, playing volleyball or basketball, or just spending some quiet time.

    Destination highlights

    • Enjoy the outdoors from the comforts of a deluxe cottage.
    • Battle a thrilling 16-km stretch of tumbling whitewater rapids.
    • Take advantage of the cold weather to spend a weekend in the outdoors.
