Distance : 26 Km Grade: III, III+ (difficult, requires precise maneuvering).
It is possible to offer you a half day Ganga river rafting or full day rafting trip on the Ganga in Rishikesh. We mostly run 26 km long stretch and it is easy to join a group as we have trip going almost every day. We need minimum a group of two people to run this trip any day.
This stretch of water has almost ten grade III and grade III+ rapids which are named according to their type. Like The Three Blind Mice is a grade III rapid called so as the water appears almost calm until you get to three quick and consecutive rapids, each following the other very closely. The other rapids are called Cross Fire (III), Roller Coaster (III+), Golf Course (III+) and Club House (III). The trip begins with a 45 minutes to 1 hr drive to the starting point where an appropriate safety briefing is issued while the rafts and other gears are made ready. The point to take note is that this is a fairly easy stretch even though at times an unexpected hydraulic or big waves might appear which are effortlessly handled by our guides. The rafting down the river in totality takes 2-3 hrs even though it could take as long as 3-4 hrs in the months of December and January. We finish our rafting trip just before Luxman Jhula in Rishikesh and then from there is a 5 minutes drive back to the Red Chilli Adventure office.
