This is a truly unique river trip with 3 standout elements. First would be the experience of camping on the pristine sandy beach at Beasghat, surely the finest river beach. Next would be an opportunity to learn kayaking on inflatable 2 men kayaks (duckies) and getting to do a long run on your own with full safety backup and last but not the least you get to raft long stretches on the river Alaknanda & Ganga. Also not to be left out is another beautiful Himalayan river that you encounter on this trip, Nayar

In addition to the above there are plenty of mouth watering activities for the adventure inclined. There are opportunities to do mild to wild cliff jumping, body surfing on easy to moderate level rapids, bridge slithering and stream walks. This is a trip which can be done easily on an extended weekend as the region is very easily accessible from Delhi and other parts. First timers with a reasonable fitness and a sense of adventure can also undertake this trip after consulting our experts
