Rishikesh is a popular destination for camping and adventure sports due to its proximity to the Ganga and the Himalayan range that has some of the best trekking trails in the country. Rishikesh is considered one of the holiest sites in Hinduism and attracts thousands of devotees every year who come here on pilgrimage to the sacred source of the Ganga at Gomukh or to absolve their sins in the holy waters of the Yamuna. Home to scores of mystics, spiritual gurus and yoga, Rishikesh has been attracting a large number of foreign tourists over the years. The most popular among them include The Beatles whose visit to this quaint little town in 1968 put Rishikesh on the world map. It is said that a large part of the iconic band’s ‘The Beatles’ album was written here. Other celebrities who have visited the town include Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall and Uma Thurman.
At the Red Chilli Jungle Camp, we offer a wide variety of camping activities. Book a session of yoga or meditation and enjoy some quiet time on the beach. Watch the river flow by and soak in the beauty of the surrounding mountains. Breathe in the fresh mountain air and rejuvenate your mind and body. If adrenaline pumping activity is what you’re after then choose from kayaking, rappelling, rock climbing and white-water rafting. We provide all rafting gear like helmets, life jackets and paddles and have a safety kayaker accompanying you on the water. We also arrange hikes to nearby villages. See how local people live; interact with them for a fascinating insight into their lives, far removed from modern amenities.
Camps have a peculiar discipline and rhythm to them that makes the experience more memorable. A stay at Red Chilli Jungle Camp involves a well thought out itinerary of activities during the day, a break for lunch, followed by another round of hiking or adventure sports. The day finally ends with a campfire on the beach. The campfire is a great place for meeting and interacting with other travellers and exchanging stories. Sitting around the campfire, after a long day on the river or the mountains is a welcome thought for everybody. The evening ends with dinner and then retiring to individual tents. A camp manager is on call at all times for any assistance and briefs you about the dos and don’ts of the campsite on your arrival.
The Red Chilli Jungle Camp in Uttarakhand is open nearly all year round between September and the end of June. The flexible cancellation policy ensures that you don’t lose your money even if you should cancel a trip. Year-round camping and adventure activities in Rishikesh let you experience the many faces of Nature evolving with the passing of seasons. The terrain, vegetation and the weather are distinctly different in summer and winter months. In cold weather, high- altitude areas of Uttarakhand remain shrouded in mist, with some areas receiving snowfall. It’s fascinating to see the snow melting away with the onset of warmer weather and the mist clearing to reveal green meadows and spring blossoms. Camping in Rishikesh also gives you a chance to spot several species of migratory birds that come to the valleys in large flocks to spend the winter.
Red Chilli Jungle Camp is one of the best rated adventure camps in Rishikesh because of the wide variety of high-adrenaline activities it offers. River rafting is very popular in Rishikesh.

Camping in Rishikesh provides the opportunity to tackle some of these rapids for a thrilling adventure on the water. Our experienced guides take every precaution to keep you safe while rafting, but this does not detract from the thrill of the experience.
