Frequently asked questions about rafting.

Q Do I need to know swimming to go rafting?
Ans: Not necessary. life jackets, equipment and safety briefing by our experienced crew are more than adequate. However, should you be apprehensive of the big rapids, our guides will have you walk around them.

Q What are the age and health restrictions, if any, for rafting?
Ans: There is no upper age limit for rafting as long as you are in reasonably good health. Minimum 12 yrs. You will be required to sign a liability release prior to the trip. Guardians must sign on behalf of children. For children below 12 yrs we have certain ‘kiddy’ rafting stretches, which have mild rapids.

Q Is rafting safe/ what can I expect on the trip?
Ans: The rapids of Indian rivers are ideal for the first time rafter where you can expect to get thoroughly wet and have a lot of fun! The rapids are thrilling yet safe. On the International Scale of I to VI in grading rapids, the rapids you will experience are between II and IV. (Class I being easy and Class VI being exceedingly challenging). Our guides are in command and will instruct you in basic paddling technique and safety procedures. In certain sections of mild white water you may be encouraged to “body surf”. There is a stop for refreshments along the way at “Diving rock” where the more adventurous can take a plunge into the river. For the more adventurous we have inflatable kayaks which are stable in white water and our guides would be happy to instruct you to try some of the milder rapids in such kayaks.

Q What else can I do at camp besides rafting?
Ans: You can try your hand at kayaking, rock climbing, rappelling, our unique ropes courses like Burma Bridge, Flying Fox and river crossing, nature walks and treks. The children can also try out the Trampoline and make sand castles. Sight-seeing in Rishikesh, famous for its ashrams and evening Aarti ceremony. Yoga and meditation classes can also be arranged on request at the beach camp site.
