Rafting in Alaknanda

Rafting in Alaknanda (5 Nights / 6 Days)

A self contained multi-day river adventure down the Alaknanda river. The trip starts from our base on the Ganges river near the pilgrim town of Rishikesh, and launches from the town of Chamoli river to end at Rudraprayag, descending 70 kms of a classic river run negotiating over 85 Class 3+/4 rapids!!

A scenic drive of 165 kms (6hrs) hours takes us past the town of Devprayag, Rudraprayag and Nandprayag, situated on holy confluences which later form India's holiest river, the Ganga. We reach Kaldubagarh, situated above the Alaknanda, on the road to India's holiest shrines for the Hindus, Badrinath. Enroute, we pass Rudraprayag, best known for the infamous man-eating leopard shot down by Jim Corbett in 1932 in its forests.

One of the most exciting the river runs in this part of the Himalaya, we take you through thick forests and deep gorges and cascading whitewater, Foaming rapids, sandy beaches and starry nights make this a truly memorable outdoor trip.
