Ganga River Programmes
Himalayan Outdoors (P) Ltd. is a vision come true; an adventure travel company created by a life of adventure. It is an adventure company for those who wish to venture into natural places. Himalayan Outdoors (P) Ltd. specializes in running river rafting trips, kayaking, trekking and white water rafting in Alaknanda, Kali, Tons, and Saryu.
In Garhwal, the sacred river Ganga offers the professional exhilaration of whitewater river rafting. The rivers Alaknanda & Bhagirathi are the main tributaries of the Ganga and meet Devprayag, frothing from their racy descent.
Ganges River has always remained a mystery for explorers and full of surprises for the rafters. Ganga near Rishikesh in Uttaranchal is a favourite spot for white water river rafting. The whitewater river rafting stretch of the Ganges is from Kaudiyala to Rishikesh where the river has 12 major rapids over 36-km long, most of which are easily negotiable and some require our expertise.
A three day/ two-night visit to Camp Gold Coast is ideal to enjoy the thrills of beach camping and spills of river rafting.

The Little Tibet Trek

BEST TIME – JULY, AUGUST, SEPTEMBER
Source of the Ganga Trek
The River Ganges or the Ganga is the most sacred river in the Hindu religion and its source at Gaumukh on the Gangotri glacier is one of the holiest destinations for Hindu pilgrims who come here to witness the birth of Mother Ganga. Our trek takes us to Gaumukh, the mythological source of the River Ganges, which is at the snout of the Gangotri glacier. At Gaumukh, blocks of glacier fall into the river and pilgrims ‘cleanse themselves of their sins’ in freezing water.
The Gangotri glacier’s melting waters form the Bhagirathi River and at this point the river sparkles and starts its rapid descent through the mountains.
A combination of the trek and the Bhagirathi rafting expedition is an excellent introduction to the adventure opportunities as well the colourful culture and traditional village life of the Himalayas.
BEST TIME: SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER and MAY / JUNE
India for Adventure
A trek along the ancient pilgrims’ route to the holy town of Badrinath and Kedarnath in the Himalayan foothills, combined with exhilarating rafting down the Ganges, the most revered river in the country and a wildlife safari in Jim Corbett National Park is an exciting introduction to the adventure opportunities available in a country that is known more for its rich culture and age-old traditions.
BEST TIME: NOVEMBER -APRIL
