WHITE WATER RAFTING OPTIONS ON THE GANGES
CAMP SILVER SANDS (NEAR RISHIKESH)
is located on the Devprayag road (256 kms from Delhi / 27 kms upstream from Rishikesh (5-6 hours driving time from Delhi) on the banks of the river Ganga, a sandy river beach and a portion of riverside forest. An excellent getaway from city stress - the tented river camp offers complete outdoor experience with white water rafting at its very best, camp games, solitude, campfire tales, kayaking, abseiling, good food and new found friends. And for the not so adventurous, a great holiday to put their feet up & relax, with a few lazy walks thrown in. For people with more time on their hands, we recommend self-contained, multi-day rafting expeditions on the tributaries of the holy Ganga, the Alaknanda and Kali rivers, both of which are possible within 6-9 days from Delhi.
