  • Day 1: Haridwar

    Meals: Breakfast

    Arrive early morning at Haridwar. Drive to Rishikesh & check into a hotel. After breakfast we drive to the starting point of the rafting trip. Today we raft about 20km to Rishikesh and get familiar with paddling and safety techniques, negotiating the best rapids on the Ganga, like "Three Blind Mice", "Body Surfing", "Rollercoaster", "Golf course" and a few small rapids for about 3 hr & prepare ourselves to take on the most challenging stretch Alaknanda River has to offer. We finish our trip short of Rishikesh & drive to the hotel. In the evening you can walk into the town to attend the evening prayer ceremony by the river.

    Day 2: Kaldubagar

    Meals: Breakfast

    In the morning after breakfast we drive 6-7 hrs to Kaldubagar, through the pilgrim towns of Devprayag & Rudarprayag. Stay overnight in a hotel/river camp. After settling in, there is a briefing on the river trip and the upcoming days. We pack stuff in dry bags and get ready for the next day.

    Day 3: Chamoli

    An early start takes us to Chamoli. This is the most challenging stretch of the trip. At the Putin we help in getting the rafts readied. A detailed safety briefing follows with instructions on paddling, rapids to be encountered etc. The expedition begins with a lot of grade 4/4+ rapids. Depending on the volume of water, we negotiate or walk around the ‘Hillary Fall' rapid at Nandprayag. We call it a day at Kaldubagar after a long exhilarating day on the river.

    Day 4: Gauchar

    Today we raft till Gauchar. Get ready for another exciting day on the river with plenty of grade 3/4 rapids. We raft pass the confluence of Pindar at Karanprayag. The Pindar River brings in more volume, adding punch to rapids to follow. We camp on a big sandy beach, settle in to star gaze around the bonfire and get a good night's sleep.

    Day 5: Rudraprayag

    Meals: Breakfast

    After breakfast we get on the river and raft till Rudarpryag. Today the section is more "pool & drop" as compared to the start with plenty of grade 3/4 rapids. We reach the 'Kakar Fall' grade 5 rapid. After a thorough inspection of the rapid we negotiate or line up the rafts to enter the spectacular narrow box canyon. The canyon is narrow enough, about 15 meters, for a Kakar (deer) to leap across - that's where the rapid gets its name. Finish the trip after running the 'Holy Hole' grade 4 rapid. Drive back to Rishikesh. Transfer to Haridwar to board the evening train. Trip ends.
