The Alaknanda River Rafting Expedition

A self contained multi-day river adventure down the Alaknanda & Ganga rivers. The trip starts from our base camp on the Ganges river near the pilgrim town of Rishikesh. A scenic drive for 4 hours takes us past the town of Devprayag, where the Alaknanda and Bhagirathi rivers meet to form India's holiest river, the Ganga.

We reach Rudrapryag, which is on the road to India's holiest shrines for the Hindus, Badrinath and Kedarnath. Rudrapryag is at the confluence of the Alaknanda and Mandakini rivers, and this is where our multi-dayer begins. Rudrapryag is possibly best known for the infamous man-eating leopard shot down by Jim Corbett in 1932 in its forests.

Journeying 128kms to Rishikesh, the run takes you through thick forests and deep gorges, ending each day at a different river beach to make camp for the night, enhancing the adventure of being on the river. Foaming rapids, sandy beaches and starry nights make this a truly outdoor trip, even for the first time rafter.
