Frequently asked questions about rafting
Q Do I need to know swimming to go
Ans: Not necessary. life jackets, equipment and safety
briefing by our experienced crew are more than adequate.
However, should you be apprehensive of the big rapids, our
guides will have you walk around them.
Q What are the age and health
restrictions, if any, for rafting?
Ans: There is no upper age limit for rafting as long as you
are in reasonably good health. Minimum 15 yrs. You will be
required to sign a liability release prior to the trip.
Guardians must sign on behalf of children. For children below 15
yrs. we have certain ‘kiddy’ rafting stretches, which have mild
rapids. Pregnant ladies, heart patients and people with severe
asthma are not allowed to raft.
Q Is rafting safe/ what can I expect on
Ans: The rapids of Indian rivers are ideal for the first
time rafter where you can expect to get thoroughly wet and have
a lot of fun! The rapids are thrilling yet safe. On the
International Scale of I to VI in grading rapids, the rapids you
will experience are between II and IV. (Class I being easy and
Class VI being exceedingly challenging). Our guides are in
command and will instruct you in basic paddling technique and
safety procedures. In certain sections of mild white water you
may be encouraged to “body surf”. There is a stop for
refreshments along the way at “Diving rock” where the more
adventurous can take a plunge into the river. For the more
adventurous we have inflatable kayaks which are stable in white
water and our guides would be happy to instruct you to try some
of the milder rapids in such kayaks.
Q What else can I do at camp besides
Ans: You can try your hand at kayaking, rock climbing,
rappelling, our unique ropes courses like Burma Bridge, Flying
Fox and river crossing, nature walks and treks. The children can
also try out the Trampoline and make sand castles. Sight-seeing

instances in 365 days).We will not be held responsible for last
