Expected Weather

As the season starts in March there can be snow along the trail which generally

In the period Feb – Apr day time is going to be warm and very pleasant. The water is going to be moderately cold and extremely inviting. So you might end up spending more time off the boat than on it. Evenings are going to be moderately cold in Mar & Apr and cold in Feb. Night temperature will be around 17 -20 deg Celsius in Mar - Apr & around 12 – 15 deg Celsius in Feb so come prepared with some winter clothing

In May & June day time is going to be quite warm (33 – 38 deg Celsius). While rafting or indulging in any other water activity one will not feel too much of discomfort. Evenings at the camp can be slightly uncomfortable in June and are normally fine in the month of May. One will surely need a fan in the tents and dining area.

In the period Oct to December day time is going to be warm and pleasant if the sun is out, which mostly is around this time. The water is going to be cold but not freezing cold. A dip in the river is going to initially feel cold but couple of dips and you will start enjoying the water. Evenings are going to be moderately cold in Oct & Nov and cold in December. With a bonfire next to you it is going to be an enjoyable experience. December the night temperature can go down to about 3 – 5 deg Celsius so come prepared with some winter clothing. In Oct – Nov period night temperature will be around 10 – 15 deg Celsius and you will need protection from the cold

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.
