Awesome rafting and overnight stay at Camp

5.8/7
Posted 24 Oct, 2015

i am sharing my experience for the rafting and camping at camp rollercoaster shivpuri . i was travelling with my frnds we reached the camp office at rishikesh in morNing at 11 am from there we got the taxi and left for the camp . it was about 25 KMS drive from Rishikesh. we reached there in 1 hr when we reached we were mesmerized to see the beauty around we checked in and arranGED ourselves in camps . we took the river facing camp as it was having more beautiful scene . then we had lunch and post we explored the nearby area . in the evng we played volleyball and then had tea . around 8 pm there was bonfir and snacks u can have ur drinks at that time . we enjoyed had dinner and slept it was very cold so you arr adviced to carry proper woolen clothes . next morning we get up early and left for rock climbing and rappeling . the site was near to our camp . We returned in about 1 hr then we had breakfast and then packed our luggage and left for rafting. our rafting was 24 km route from marine drive to laxman jhula . The site was abt 15 KMS from our camp we reached there and met our rafting guide Prakash instructed us and we started rafting the water was ice cool as it was nov the members on the raft must be active and should folllow the orders of guide. We passed through various rapids and finally reached our end point . Things to keep in mind while going on an rafting camp- 1)Proper wollen clothes must be taken as the cliamte is very cold especially at nights . 2)Must negotiate the prices of your package as the agents usually charge higher prices . 3)Carry the thins of ur daily need as there is no shop near the camps . 4) Carry ur liquor as it is not available in rishikesh . 5)Inform ur agent about ur meal if ur are non-vegetarian or not . 6)Before rafting must keep in mind that the life jacket is properly worn and must not take it out . 7)Keep a torch and cold and fever medicine with you .

Great location with helpful staff

5.3/7
Posted 17 May, 2015

I did a hassle free booking via MakeMyTrip.com. Only reason for getting there was rive rafting, which is thrilling, exciting and what not. Nice staff and amenities. Food is just good. But who cares for food when all you gonna do is explore and enjoy. You can get details about you travel plan, and recommendation from the staff, trust me, they're really helpful. An advice I would like to share, get your reservation done a week advance. Bargaining is must thing to do in Rishikesh. Don't just go for one agent, try differnet and go for the one which is par your requirement with a best price tag.

Nice hotel with good amenities

5.9/7
Posted 11 May, 2015

I visited this place recently, Its nicely made with all amenities provided in a constrained environment. The rafting was amazing especially jump from kid rock. The toilet facilities can be enhanced, but its completely good. A must place to visit. Travelers must take with them mosquito repellent as mosquitoes are there. Moreover taking sunscreen in May-June is also necessary to save skin from tanning.

Conveniently located with good appearance

5.5/7
Posted 19 Sep, 2014

I did direct booking. There was no problem in booking. We went there for rafting. Overall, my experience there was good. Buffet system was there. It was conveniently located. Look wise, it was calm. Staff people were very helpful there. Pickup and drop facility was also available there. Camp was good there. It was neat and clean but not spacious. Only bed and woolen clothes were provided there. Quality and quantity wise, it was good. It was reasonable. Rafting and campfire were arranged by them. Rishikesh is a very good place. Location wise, it was also very good. Appearance wise, it was good. Booking process was also good. Service of the staff was nice. Room was average. Food was very good. Activities were excellent. I visited there in March 2014 with my friends.

Pathetic stay and irresponsible management

0.5/7
Posted 4 Jun, 2014

We went with a group of 9 people looking for some adventure and nature to rishikesh . We have always heard good things about the tents and as females we were not much concerned about the safety but much to our surprise regal camps had to offer some terrible management and other facilities.Primarily 1. The food sucked big time . We had burned peanuts and raw pakoras for the snacks 2. Tasteless food and dirty plates for the dinner 3. Last but not the least terrible safety We had a group of 12 drunk men shouting and howling on the top of their voices near our tents . We were 3 females in the tent and got scared to death . No one from the management showed up to stop them from creating nuisance and on the top of that we saw some of their employees drinking and participating in that havoc. In the morning too the group was drinking from the morning and stalked and passed comments at the girls in our group . We even tried calling the management but obviously they are high and stoned themselves and none of them picked our call . So in short if you want to have fun in rishikesh and still want to be safe and You are a girl do not go to Regal Rafting camps. I can tell you what not to take but you can definitely find good camps there . Good luck with the search ! P.S- Rafting was average !

If the person like adventure this is the perfect place. If someone like peace environment this is the place you can find that. Different types of birds you can see over there. And many more things which you can feel. It can\'t be expressed.

We reached there in 1 hr when we reached we were mesmerized to see the beauty around we checked in and arranged ourselves in camps. We took the river facing camp as it was having more beautiful scene. Then we had lunch and post we explored the nearby area. In the evening we played Volleyball and then had tea. Around 8 pm there was bonfire and snacks you can have your drinks at that time. We enjoyed, had dinner and slept It was very cold so you are advised to carry proper woolen clothes.
