The rafting was great. We had been told this company has the highest safety standards and everything seemed good. The guide was excellent. We have been rafting quite a few times and he was the most entertaining guide we have ever had. He had many games organized between rapids and really made the activity a highlight of our trip! He...

a very professionally run camp, with all the skill sets needed to make it a success. The organization, the safety standards, the equipment, the tents and the fun quotient make it a great place. The trained staff ensure you enjoy your time on the water making you do fun things on and off the raft.

Just back from a weekend break at HRR camp. Definitely the best camp in Rishikesh! Activities very well organised and team very friendly, professional and safety conscious. Very clean facilities and beach could rival the best beaches in Europe. Kids had a blast and wanted to live there forever. Can't rate it highly enough! Have also previously thoroughly enjoyed an...

Thank you so much for your encouraging review. Time and again we have struggled with our brand of the outdoors experience given the "march towards development" and "citified comforts" in the outdoors that seem to be gaining popularity. And then when we hear from guests like you we are encouraged to keep the experience simple and safe. We like our... More

This camp has a very nice beach, definitely better than the others I have stayed in shivpuri....the tents are just at the river bank, very nicely done.... Staff is very professional and friendly so overall an exciting experience. Not to miss, the views at night and early mornings are heavenly ... You may find it slightly overpriced compared to others... More

Dear Nitin, So glad that you enjoyed your experience at HRR. The early morning and evening experiences that you have mentioned are enjoyable precisely because of the location of our camp, the spacing of our tents etc because we want to maintain the outdoors experience for each one of our guests and not have them feel like they are merely...

Thank you for giving an accurate report of facilities! Poor phone connectivity etc. Nature of food and meals etc. Of course Safety on river is paramount and the focus is on providing you a safe rafting experience in a comfortable camp location (not over the top luxury camping or any such thing! because that is not our focus).

Thank you so much for this review and apologies for responding so late. I am happy to note that you noticed the quiet and the solitude at a (slightly higher) cost which is not too much more than the other rafting camps in the vicinity :) More
