BASE FOR THE TRIP: H.E.L RIVERSIDE CAMP

Himalayan Eco Lodges’ (H.E.L) riverside luxury camp at Jayalgarh is surely the finest riverside camp in the country and a great base to raft from on Alaknanda, Upper Alaknanda & Ganga. The campsite has a spectacular setting and high end facilities to compliment it. Interesting fact about the campsite is that it is so uniquely placed that from here one can easily raft on 5 rivers namely Alaknanda, Ganga, Bhagirath, Pinder & Mandakini This luxury campsite on the banks of Alaknanda river is blessed with an interesting character. There is a thick forest cover in the background playing home to a variety of birds, beautiful fields and an odd village house across the river, white water rapid close by creating audio signals very soothing to the ears & a sand beach ideal for keeping children occupied for hours


Itinerary

    Check into the camp & relax for a while in the beautiful environs and get ready for some action. A short drive & a short walk will get us to our ACTION BEACH in Maletha, surely one of the finest.
