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.

The rafting is accompanied by camping. The camp site on the banks of this holy river is gifted with a thick forest. This forest served as a brilliant backdrop for our camp. The forest is also a home to a variety of birds. Waking up to the rhythmic sound of the chatty river waters was a serene experience. It was soothing to the ears and it also serves as beaches that fit perfectly playground for both adult and kids.

I took this trip to ride on rapids of river Alaknanda. This is a 5 day river rafting expedition that I booked from Chamoli to Rishikesh. It was a well spent week. In this tour Rapids of Grade 2 to Grade 5 were performed. During rafting the whole time was allocated to understand the basics and move forward with the rafting with high knowledge about it. We experienced high rapids on this stretch which includes Hillary Fall, Kakad Fall, The Wall, etc.

We were welcomed with a refreshing drink. Post that we were explained about rules of river rafting. This was crucial step as it was very useful later on. Other than rafting, we also had cliff jumping and body surfing. We played beach volleyball as well. Food, i.e. breakfast and dinner were provided, but it was not good. On all nights there was bonfire in the camp site. Accommodation was good with a nice beach side luxury camp.

The mighty and ferocious waves crushing against our rafts and face were just awesome. No other river rafting expedition can beat this one. LAst year October, this rafting experience made me a fan of Alaknanda and its IV+ grades!

This trip took us through a number of Grade III, IV to IV+ rapids. For those who do not know about the grades, these are the levels of difficulty with rafting. These included the famous Hillary Fall and the Kakkar Fall. It was a thrilling experience.

This trip actually starts from the place called Chamoli. This is actually situated near the sacred Badrinath temple. The trip ends at Rudraprayag. Rudraprayag is the convergence of the Alaknanda and Madakini rivers.

The beauty of this trip is the upper stretches where one can have wild rapids and changing landscapes in terms of gorges and forests.

The Day one of our trip started with a drive from Haridwar to Jayalgarh. After breakfast at Jayalgarh, we were taught about the basics of rafting, and after a brief session, we started to report to our leader. After lunch we had a basic rafting at the Lower Alaknanda. This was more of a teaching session. After sleeping that night in camp, the next morning we went to Chamoli where we rafter in the Upper Alaknanda until noon and moved to Nandaprayog. After a bit of sight seeing and knowing local culture of Nandaprayog, we spent the night again in tents. The Day 3 was the most challenging day, we rafted from Nandaprayog to Karanprayag. It was super tough and exhausting. However, it was fun. The next day was higher grafe rafting through 10-12 rapids and then stay at Gauchar. The final day ended with Grade 5 rafting at the Kakkar Fall, which is the show stopper of this adventure. After that we went back to Rishikesh.

Level of difficulty of this expedition is certainly too high and this is meant only for audacious people. I had a tough time for the first few days of the rafting. It can be too tiring and too stressful. One must be highly careful before taking this deal. Also, one must not haste into decisions. Also, the rafting by itself is risky, and it had other sports too. This is so not meant for all ages. So decide well before booking.

The trip was awesome. However, it was tedious. The camp stays were brilliant, and the whole trip was well organized. However, rafting seems to be a real tough job, and we indeed had a really tough time with completing it. However, all the fears and challenges vanish the moment we are in the river. The river expedition was a fruitful experience. I loved it totally. I wish to do more such fun adventurous sports again and again.

The trip was awesome. We did dome serious rafting. Unlike some boring rafting like the ones that is just for a day, this is quite interesting. We had lots of fun. I enjoyed it a lot. I am recommending this to all. The only flaw was the stay in tents were not comfortable.
