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...

Dear Traveller, it seems from your review that you came in 2013. We have continued to challenge ourselves in trying to follow our minimal impact model of eco-tourism. However at the moment camping on the Ganga is suspended due to orders from the NGT. We are pending an early resolution on this matter. Rafting on the Ganga continues and guests...

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...

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.

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.

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.

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...

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...

Many thanks for your wonderful review and for mentioning our safety standards and the general environment at our Camp. It seems we are on the right track though we won't sit easy on our laurels. We continue to remain on our toes. Please visit us this summer at our Tons camp in either May or June. Similar services, different setting.

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).
