Where is Atali Ganga located?
We are spread over 3 acres of hillside overlooking the Ganga and surrounded by reserved forest, 30 kms from Rishikesh on the Badrinath road in Uttarakhand. Click here to see our Location on Google Maps
What exactly does Atali Ganga offer?
We have 22 air-conditioned independent cottages including 3 family units, a café & restaurant, conference room, swimming pool, climbing wall and a high ropes course. We are an ‘activotel’ and offer holidays built around outdoor activities to keep you busy from all day. All our activities are conducted by qualified Activity Officers (AOs)
80% of the property is built on a hillside, and you will have to walk a series of steps to reach your cottage. If your group includes infants, small kids and infirm elders, do request for cottages closer to the Cafe.
Is Atali Ganga for my family or my team?
Atali is ideal for families, schools and organizations who want to experience the great Indian outdoors from the comfort of a resort setting. We are built on a hillside and all cottages involve a bit of a climb to reach. But we are sure this will add to your outdoor experience.
We have no TVs in our rooms. But there is one in our lounge for big match days, movie screenings etc. Since we are surrounded by reserved forest, we discourage loud music, and appreciate if you do the same. Unplugged performances are welcome.
What about the kids?
Kids with a sense of fun and adventure will love being here and we promise they will not want to go back. We offer structured and supervised outdoor activities for kids above 6, including climbing, hiking, kayaking, pool time, birding and astronomy.
We also have tons of indoor games and books for kids of all ages. We do not offer structured activities for kids below 6 and they should be under the supervision of at least one parent at all times given the hilly terrain.

Commitment to Hygiene and Safety Protocol:
I commit to disclose my travel and quarantine history to Aquaterra Adventures, and decide to not travel should I have symptoms of infection related to Covid19 or other disease that may spread due to my participation, thereby endangering other people. I also commit to follow guidelines and protocols set up by Aquaterra Adventures, and overseen implementation by its guides, trip leaders on my journey. If I do not, I understand that I may be asked to do so or leave the trip/expedition/journey, to maintain our hygiene and safety protocol.
Participants must be in good health and reasonable physical condition especially if they are participating in any adventure activity. It is vital that participants with medical problems make them known to us well before departure. If you suffer from severe muscular, chest, heart or bronchial disorders, or if you are a severe asthmatic, or have high blood pressure, you are strongly advised against participating. Expeditions generally take place in remote areas where there is little or no access to normal medical services or hospital facilities for serious problems. Where necessary, evacuation can be prolonged, difficult and expensive. Medical and evacuation expenses will be the responsibility of the participant.
Our Activity Officers take their responsibilities seriously and if an officer believes in his/her judgment that you should not participate in an activity, before your departure, even if you pass your medical, he/she may exclude you from the trip. In this circumstance, you will be offered the option of taking another trip considered suitable for you. If during an activity the activity officer considers you should not participate further he/she may direct you not to continue and you must follow their instructions for your own safety.
Personal travel insurance is not included in the tour price. We strongly recommend that you take out travel insurance including cancellation insurance upon booking.
