Great location a short distance away from the hustle & bustle of central Rishikesh and totally worth a visit.
I had heard of white water rafting and booked this place. Our booking procedure was smooth and we reached Rishikesh. We had to drive for around 20 min to reach the resort after we crossed Rishikesh town.
Trekking - on the day two morning we went for trekking on a small hill top which is nearby. It felt completely amazing, and we spotted many exotic birds as well.
Rafting - Post breakfast we went to Shivpuri for river rafting. Superb experience.
Very friendly, cooperative and nice staff. They were always ready to arrange the activities we were planning to do.
Food taste was good, not too spicy.
The dining area was very clean.
Good interior, and eco friendly. Clean and neat.
Location is its USP. I have no second thoughts that this place has its magical charm
One negative point:
You have to walk for about 5 - 7 mins to reach to the place from the parking
Love the time spent there.
