Too stressed with metropolitan lifestyle, decided to take a break and came across for a place near rishikesh "camp rapid fire".Must share that it is a decent camp which takes care well of hospitality needs and came up to my expectation or rather even more than that. The people over there are so good in interaction, service, understanding the problem(like i have bit bronchitic problem),even then i was allowed for rafting following their instructuions as an expert, it was fun overall. To name few kamal(rafting expert), deepu (rafting expert), geetu(rock climbing expert), rohit(hospitality boy) were at their best and enjoyed their company for 2 days. I went with my younger brother.Majid is the guy who manages all this over there and it would be unfair to include his name in review. Starting from Pankaj who booked my tour, everyone down the line were very helpful especially in locating me the place(being my first visit). I would definately land up there and hoping to have fun again there. One can go in small groups, large groups...natural enviornment over there is at its best and one can enjoy, relax, refine thought process like i did over such a place. The location is best for a holiday.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- No television, no blaring music, no bright lights ... seem dull? Wrong. It is one of the most exciting places you could visit. Camp RapidFire is situated on the banks of the mighty river Ganga. However as it passes by the camp, it is still the playful, impetuous child of the mountains, not the mature and steady giant of the plains. Camp RapidFire is a riverside beach camp, which means it is situated on a large tract of white sand on the river banks. Of course you can spend the day sunning yourself on the beach and fall asleep listening to the melodious lullaby of the river. Of course this stretch of the river with its playful rapids and mischievous eddies is also one of the most popular white water rafting stretches in the country. There is no electricity. We prefer it like that, and so do our clients. As the sun sets the kerosene lanterns dot the stretch of the camp, each one an island of warm cheer. Many of our clients prefer not to use even flashlights outside the tents. The stars, resplendent in their isolation from interfering city lights, are usually bright enough to see by on a clear night. ... more less
