Ganges River Rafting and Elephant Safari: 10 days/9 nights

Originating in the Himalayas, the Ganges is an ideal river for rafting in India. Its many tributaries add to the volume of water while its step and pool make it one of the safest expeditions. Additionally, the Ganges is considered the most sacred river in India, worshipped by Hindus as Mother Ganga. Together with an elephant safari in Corbett National Park, one of India's legendary wildlife reserves, enjoy an extraordinary journey through the foothills of Northern India.
