Guides, drivers and cooks are truly professionals. Rafting camp in Nimmu (Ladakh) is also really nice place. If you are looking for best rafting and trekking company in Rishikesh or Ladakh - Wet'n'wild is your choice! Homohomeni, Lobnya (Russia)
  • user pic We had been to rafting in zanskar river. It was a 30 kms rafting. The experience was awesome. The location is too good. Mountains all over and chilling water around us. We got good instructions and all the arrangements were very good. The guide in raft was very friendly and experienced too. It was the one of the very good part of our trip. There was food booked with our package and the food just after rafting was good. It was simple Rice Dal, Papad and Sabji but was very sumptuous and filling. Sumashree, Bangalore (India)
  • user pic A very nice rafting experience. Thank you guys! We've taken the 3hrs long ride. First 2 hrs were exciting. We've done a bit of rafting as well and this one was of no disappointment. The last hour is on a flat water until we reach the camp site. Lunch was included. We do recommend you to try this out. Bernard
  • user pic We spent over a month camping in the safari tents Wet n Wild now have at their rafting camp, and it as truly amazing. The views, the river roaring right past the white sandy beach, the stupa overlooking the green and tree lined camp site and the peacefulness of the location made it a beautifu; place to be ourselves. The warmth and conscientiousness of the camp team who cooked and took care of us made it a place we will definitely be returning to. The food is simple but fresh an locally sourced and the cook team are happy to cater for special diets or requests, which was a bonus. There is plenty of fresh drinking water provided, and toilet/washroom facilities, basic but clean. The camp even had a small shop this year. The rafting was daily, withcustomers doing day trips pr camping over night, and I know the guides are the only ones internationally qualified in Ladakh. Camping was the BEST though. Highly recommended for families or tourists looking for some peace away from town Andrea, Gelilydan (UK)
  • user pic Given the fact that I am not friendly towards water. I was forced to do rafting and kayaking by my parents. And it turned out to be the best experience on that trip. Excellent, anxiety, trill and fear is what I experienced doing the adventure sports. Kudos to the team obviously. Janak, Noida (India)
  • user pic I did rafting n kayaking with Wet n Wild many times and every time encountering the wilderness of Zanskar river and Ganga was amazingly advent and vivid. The staff members are very friendly, cooperative and highly experienced. The best thing about Wet n Wild is that "our safety is their priority" but that wont lessen the fun part. I must mention during one of my trip they provide us with 5 safety kayak as my friend were freaking afraid of water and we enjoyed alot. So thank u Mr Chotak and team. Good luck. Jene, New Delhi (India)

  • user pic By ar the most professional, safe and enjoyable provider to go rafting with. Having rafted all over the world it was great to see such a safe operation unlike many other operators throughout India. All of the staff were very friendly and halpful and made sure we had a great time. The price was also very reasonable when you consider that they provide all the transport and a very tasty lunch. A great experience with a great company! J Nolan, County Dublin (Ireland)
  • user pic We visited Rishikesh in March as part of an experienced group of kayakers and quickly made friends with the team down at Wet N Wild. Their knowledge of the local rivers is exceptional and they helped us organise a week long expedition to the Ganga, Bangarati, Alaknanda and Pindar rivers. Wet N Wild have great local contacts and were able to organise cheap and reliable transport for us during our stay and for our return to Delhi airport.I was very impressed with the way they treated their clients, the quality of their rental equipment and the emphasis they place on safety. They also have an office and trips run from Leh (Ladakh). My experience in Rishikesh was so good that I'm already trying to fit in a trip to Ladakh within the next two years. R-Howley, Newport (UK)
