It's a 4 day non-stop thriller..... probably this is the best way to describe this expedition.

This is not a trip for first timers. It is for the people who have experienced rafting before and are now looking for the next level. The trip demands very good physical state, and the participants should be able to do 5-6 hrs of rigorous paddling every day. And being a team player is an absolute must.

The trip starts from Chamoli. Out of the 5 Prayags in Uttarakhand, you will cover 3 prayags in this trip namely 'Nandaprayag', 'Karnaprayag', 'Rudraprayag' all on the river Alaknanda. This entire section comes under Upper Alaknanda.

Camping support is provided through accompanying vehicle.
