We went in Nov 2013....and it was one of the best decisions we could have made...the entire staff right from Ram...to everyone involved were extremely caring and attentive.... The tents were comfortable and faced the emerald waters of Gangaji....we had an amazing view of the mountains on the opposite of the river....we managed to see loads of kakar or barking... More

More than these tents, what anyone would like the most would be the ambience, calmness n beautiful n majestic river Ganga. The food is average, people who prefer drinks on such trips are advised to keep their quota n a good fridge to keep drinks cool. All tents are the same, so don't expect too many things... What one should... More

I'm not sure which tents you are referring to, since we do not have our tented beach camp at the moment! Perhaps you were not camping with us, Himalayan River Runners. At the moment we are only offering our rafting services to our sister concern Himalayan Hideaway Lodge or to a few day trippers who may be staying elsewhere. More

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...

Many thanks for your encouraging feedback. We do hope our safety standards too met with your expectations and beyond ;) though I can only say that a happy guide means that he had his safety standards well under control :)) Please come again. More

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...

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 ...

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).
