Expected Weather

In the period Feb

Apr day time is going to be warm and very pleasant. The water is going to be moderately cold and extremely inviting. So you might end up spending more time off the boat than on it. Evenings are going to be moderately cold in Mar & Apr and cold in Feb. Night temperature will be around 17 -20 deg Celsius in Mar - Apr & around 12 – 15 deg Celsius in Feb so come prepared with some winter clothing

In May & Jun day time is going to be quite warm (33 – 38 deg Celsius). While rafting or indulging in any other water activity one will not feel too much of discomfort. Evenings at the camp can be slightly uncomfortable in June and are normally fine in the month of May. One will surely need a fan in the tents and dining area.

In the period Oct to Dec day time is going to be warm and pleasant if the sun is out, which mostly is around this time. The water is going to be cold but not freezing cold. A dip in the river is going to initially feel cold but couple of dips and you will start enjoying the water. Evenings are going to be moderately cold in Oct & Nov and cold in December. With a bonfire next to you it is going to be an enjoyable experience. December the night temperature can go down to about 3 – 5 deg Celsius so come prepared with some winter clothing. In Oct – Nov period night temperature will be around 10 – 15 deg Celsius and you will need protection from the cold

    3 Long stretches of rafting on Upper Alaknanda
    Countless rapids for an exciting whitewater trip
    Beautiful scenery all around with villages, gorges, forest, etc.
    Other activities like hiking and village visit


This white water expedition is surely one of the finest ways to enjoy big rapids rafting in India. In about 3 days your thirst for white water thrills is sure to be quenched on this expedition on upper sections of Alaknanda river in the state of Uttarakhand. But there is much more to the trip than white water. This river journey is through a beautiful landscape interspersed with gorges, pristine beaches, quaint village establishments and thickly forested regions. Also a very big attraction is going to be the stay on the beautiful sandy beaches of Alaknanda.

We start the trip with a beautiful drive along the Ganga and the Alaknanda rivers. We take a break at our deluxe riverside camp in Jayalgarh and from here we continue the drive to our put in point, Gauchar. We have a detailed safety briefing and set off into the wild waters of the Alaknanda and rest assured you will be soaking wet within no time. There are countless rapids to be negotiated on this river expedition. The rapids will be in Class II IV category. You will have guides scouting a lot of rapids before running them, a great opportunity for all to learn more about the sport. We might decide not to run a few rapids along the way if they look tricky. This is a call the trip leader will take on the spot. After 3 days of pounding on the river we will finish the trip at lower Karnaprayag and from here drive back to Haridwar and proceed with our onwards journey

Another great attraction of the trip is the fact that the river is very easily accessible from Delhi and other parts of the country. To join the trip you will need to come to Haridwar or Dehradun airport. Please keep in mind that this trip is suitable for experienced rafters only. People joining this trip should be comfortable with water and white water and lots of it!!
