Rafting & camping on the banks of Ganges 13th april 08

Rafting & camping on the banks of Ganges..Join in
If you enjoy adventure, river rafting is the right thing for you. The never-ending thrill in the untamed rivers is exciting for the ones with a sporty spirit. Just pack your bags with a few essentials and get, set, go on a river rafting trip!

The rivers in the Himalayas are among the best spots for river rafting. The rapid waves of the river crash into the rocky banks leaving the water foaming and swirling for rafters. These rivers are apt for both amateurs and professionals.

For sheer thrills, white water rafting is unbeatable & is a lot safer than it appears on videos & pictures. All the safety measures & precautions to be taken are grilled into you. The concept of teamwork & discipline is emphasized. & think about cliff jump? Jumping in the foaming Ganges from an overhanging rock 25 Ft high – you will do it & crave for more, we assure you that.

River rafting is an absolutely safe sport even for people who do not know how to swim. Get into life jacket and follow instructions carefully for an exhilarating river rafting experience. You will be given training by experienced river rafting instructors and guides. River rafting is done usually in groups with an instructor at all times. You can stay overnight in luxury tents, pitched on beaches alongside the river, as we halt each night. You can also enjoy campfires and bonfire nights on river rafting trips.
