Raft the divine Ganga and Yamuna with GIO Weekends this season
Smash a goal with the craft of the raft with GIO Backpacking Weekends on Yamuna and Ganga. The contrasting edginess in the volume of both the rivers adds on to the thrill quotient. On one hand, Ganga whooshes past with its abundant volume and on the other hand, Yamuna hums with its low volume.
In the first leg of this program you will be rafting on the Ganges, a 25 km river stretch uproars with more than 13 major rapids of Class II III+ levels, making it most thrilling and adventurous. At the end of the rafting stretch you drive up to the Yamuna and tonight you camp on a beautiful sandy beach on the banks of the river. Spend the evening by a fire and under a star spangled sky.
On the second leg of this voyage, ride easy on the Yamuna. The Yamuna smug with its low volume will ease on the grade of the rapids but increases the number of the rapids and consequently theres action almost all the time. The bug doesn't stop just on the rapids... fun thralls beyond this. Jammed packed with daredevil activities, GIO Backpacking Weekends are whooping with energy. Body surf or just jump off the cliff , slither on the bridge, river cross, or just go footloose - let the wolfish side prevail!
