At just 260 Kms from Delhi, The camps are accessible by NH58 that offers a convenient and fast approach time of just 5-6 hours flat.

There are 2 options depending on availability of time:

1. If you have just a couple of hours then go for only River Rafting packages. You will find a good numbers of shops near Lakshman Jhula offering dirt cheap rafting trips. The operators have inflatable rafts and vehicles that accompany you to a point beyond rishikesh and take you on a white water rafting expedition down the Ganges, which ends just 400 Mts short of Rishikesh. The rates vary with the rafting distance covered, and you can expect the cost to be between Rs.450/- to 800/- per person. While it is cool for those who are short on time, it is not the complete experience. The Rafts and Guides are often not up to the mark and try to finish the trip as soon as possible for business gains.

A word of advise: Don’t just jump into a raft just because the trip cost is less, it may turn fatal. Check if the guides are licensed and authorized to operate in the waters. Its better to play safe, than loose life over a few bucks. Click for details: River Rafting Day Tour Packages
