I loved my two nights at HRR's Ganga Camp! It was quiet, staff are friendly, the location is amazing, food was good. All of us were treated like old friends. The rafting is a LOT of fun. I repeat, it was quiet. Prices are a bit higher to help keep some of the crowds away. The camp focuses on quality... More

I stayed here with a group of friends (see Wendy F's review below) in March 2014. HRR is one of the oldest and most established camps on this stretch of river. Their safety record on the river is second to none. Their facilities are comfortable, the food always freshly prepared, simple but delicious (we had rotis hot off the tandoor,... More

As part of a group of four women I spent 4 nights with this organization. Two nights on the beach with two rafting experiences both up and down stream. The facilities and food were fabulous and the guiding staff professional and fun. The two day trek in the foothills was amazing with an experienced and friendly guide and porters that... More

We stayed at the HRR Ganga Camp as part of a large private party which occupied the entire camp. After three nights we wished we could have stayed longer. The camp was peaceful, comfortable and pristine. Initially hesitant to be 'campling' in India, we were wonderfully surprised to find this camp an oasis from the usual noise, chaos and pollution....

Shortlisted this property post an exhaustive reseach on the net and TA. The property is ideally located 2 kms beyond Shivpuri. It has one of the largest beaches that any such camp in that belt has. They have around 45 odd tents, 2 volleyball playing areas and 2 badminton nets along with tyre activities and rope balancing in thier property.... More

I reached on Thursday evening well in time for dinner at the campsite. Unlike most travelers, I had walked all the way from the point where the rafting campsites begin in Shivpuri; so I had seen almost all the rafting campsites on the river-bank. The moment I reached the Himalayan River Runners (HRR) Campsite, I was thrilled to realise that... More

The food was delicious and the staff looked after our needs very professionally. The staff was very helpful since we had a kid and... More

We were on a self drive road trip from Ahmedabad, Gujarat to Rishikesh. We came across Himalayan River Runners for our rafting requirements. I spoke to Duglas and Ganesh and we were in.
