Himalayan Eco Lodges (H.E.L) riverside luxury camp at Jayalgarh is surely the finest riverside camp in the country and a great base to raft from on Alaknanda, Upper Alaknanda & Ganga. Interesting fact about the campsite is that it is so uniquely placed that from here one can easily raft on 5 rivers namely Alaknanda, Ganga, Bhagirathi, Pinder & Mandakini.
This deluxe campsite on the banks of Alaknanda River is blessed with an interesting character. There are lots of trees all around and a fresh water stream playing home to a variety of birds & beautiful fields. An odd village home close by and the river creating vibrations very soothing to the ears will make your stay all the more peaceful.
