Traveller Tales From Uttarakhand

Rishikesh was planned in January with a group of 7 in mind, but unfortunately, only 3 of us could make it. We were on the verge of canceling the trip, but Mrinal suggested otherwise and egged us on to make it happen, since he himself is a travel enthusiast and has explored Rishikesh. Thrillophilia was a blessing in disguise. Right from camping to river rafting, from transportation to food, everything was sorted for us by Mrinal and Nikhil, and they were always available round the clock for all our queries?.? Red Chillies Camp at Byasi is a magnificent nest between the hills, and is 30kms from the main town of Rishikesh. The tents are more habitable and comfortable than my room back home! Clean washrooms, home like food, and great company at the camp made it all the more memorable. Rishikesh is still not as commercial as other destinations like Goa, so the people take pride in their hospitality and the warmth is palpable. The highlights of our trip were the 35kms white water rafting(Red chillies is the best in Rishikesh) and Bungee Jumping at Jumpin Heights. Any adrenaline junkie will remember the gush of excitement during these experiences. Safety is their numero uno concern and even jumping into the Ganges feels safe with them around! All in all, Rishikesh is a crazy place to go with friends for an extended weekend, and the entire team at Thrillophilia makes it all the more hassle-free and rejuvenating! Next dream destination? Someplace where I can jump out of a plane 25000 feet above the ground and live to see another day! Let's see if you can make that happen in India, Thrillophilia!

We planned a spontaneous adventure trip to Rishikesh in the month of march. It was a complete fun experience and very well organized.The camp is located 30 kms from Rishikesh, but it more then makes up when you reach the place. The riverside is cleaner and more pristine. Day 1: We reached camp at around 3 and we decided to go straight for the activities. We did kayaking, rock climbing, rappelling which was all handles very well by experiences instructors. Day 2: Rafting was an amazing experience. WE had a guide from chicago, I think her name was Aaron. She was very encouraging and fun to be with. She did a great job of safety and instructions throughout the 16 km course. Great experience overall. Highly recommended. P.S- Special callout to Mrinal from Thrillophilia. He did a great job in recommending this place to us and arranging everything at the last minute

This exciting Alaknanda River Rafting experience is sheer adventure that will give you an amazing chance to actually quench all your adventure thirsts. This adventure offered a myriad of opportunities for the famous white water rafting in the gorgeous, stunning, and gigantic surroundings of the Himalayas. I am happy about this trip. It took me on a ride on one of the most holy rivers in the Indian Himalayas known as the Alaknanda River.

My friend and I stayed here for several days and couldn't have better things to say about our stay. From the hotel staff, the food, the room quality, the location on the river, we had a wonderful stay. I would definitely recommend this to friends and look forward to staying at other properties in the future.

A gorgeous gorgeous resort, this is amongst the best places in Lansdowne to stay and it is indeed a place where you can see the pines bathed in the warm dawn of every morning... ok I am getting too poetic! But, seriously it was worth being there. Worth every moment, penny and second we spent there.

We had a wonderful trekking experience in this beautiful region surrounded by the lofty himalayan mountains. The camp was set in a fabulous location right next to the river which helped us relax late in the evening after a tiring day. The tents were very comfortable. Great experience.

Beautiful place! I never wanted to come back - this place offers you everything- serene environs, peaceful atmosphere, thrilling adventure. I must say this was one of the best holiday experience I have had so far. Just can't get over the entire experience.

Uttarakhand is damn beautiful and Lansdowne is certainly an asset to this state. I loved the entire experience. I so wanted a break from the busy city life and this place was something that I had just dreamt about. Great experience.

Good resort, experience power cuts here and there, but otherwise the overall experience was really nice and we had an amazing time.
