Exclusive riverside camp just 6 hrs from Delhi

Camp is located at one of the most exclusive sites on the banks of river Ganga, amidst the scenic beauty of a reserved forest area. Just 27 kms from Rishikesh and 15 kms from Shivpuri. Camp Highlands has a private beach and tents are pitched up on the sand overlooking the biggest rapid on the Ganges 'the Wall'.

Apart from rafting activities camp has a lot to offer. Indulge in a game of beach volleyball, or just take a dip in the holy waters of the Ganges. Take a hike to a Garhwal village. Dine in the open overlooking the river, or stay awake late gazing at stars. Camp has its own rappelling site.

Camp is suited for individuals, corporate, family, school and angling groups. We have a large patch of land adjacent to the camp to conduct team building activities.

Caution : We do not have electricity at the camp and hence no heating or refrigeration. Camp is about 400 meters from the road head, . Approach to the camp is a good 10 min walk through the thick forest cover in a hilly terrain (downhill on arrival, uphill on departure). Participants are expected to carry their belongings themselves; so travel lite.

We strictly adhere to eco-guidelines of no bright lights, no loud music, meal timings and no campfires during the summer season.

Location: Approx. 27 kms from Rishikesh, next to the biggest rapid on Ganga 'The Wall'.
