Bhagirathi Blast

Trips

This is possibly the best weekend getaway north of the Indian capital. Three days on non stop action, begins with an initiation run down the Ganga, and our guided preparing you for the big plunge down the Bhagirathi. The next day we drive out early up the valley of the Ganga, past the confluence at Devprayag, where the Bhagirathi meets the Alaknanda to make India’s holiest river. What follows is 3 hrs of non-stop action as we descend the Bhagirathi, including running the “Chute” rapid and the mammoth rapids at the Confluence.

A calm float brings us to Beas Ghat, where we set up camp for the night. We can arrange for fishing permits on the Ganga should you so desire. We camp by the river and have a well-cooked meal laid out by our support crew. The weekend culminates with a float down the valley and run the big Ganga river rapids, the “Daniel’s Dip” and the “Wall”. Float into Camp for lunch, and depart for Delhi.
