Camp Rapid descent transports you to
that idyllic existence that you long for, with the sublime Ganges flowing
by, lush green canopy of trees and your own private beach
. It is
just the place where you can unwind and do what you wish to, its a
place where you can hear the river, the wind and the birds harmonise. A
glorious retreat for the entire family, a group of friends or just you, camp
Rapid Descent has something for offer to everyone who visits it.
The camp is also a haven for the outdoor activities with
White water rafting (addictive to the extreme) leading the list. A
discussion late into the night dissecting every inch of the trip over a
crackling bonfire is mandatory and adds to the enjoyment.

Kayaking & Hiking are all there for the taking.
