Rafting

For The Young...And The Young At Heart!

You cannot possibly come to Bull's Retreat and not go rafting! No, you don't need to know how to swim - that's what life jackets are meant for, to keep you afloat! The likelihood of you falling in is remote, however, that's also part of the fun! All our adventure activities are in the experienced hands of professional guides from MHE Adventure Holidays - the pioneers of commercial rafting in India. Children below 14 are allowed on certain sections of the river suitable to their age group. Your professional guide will be the judge of that and will have the final word. Your safety is our top priority, so go ahead, dive in...for an experience of a life-time!

 
Trekking

Trekking

Wander, Meander, Walk, Hike...

Professional trekking guides will plan a day trip for you and accompany you on the trek. Packed lunch, cool drinks to beat the heat, and hopefully a fresh water spring at the end of it all! Just inform the reception if you feel like taking a hike - literally!

 
Rock Climbing and Rappelling

Artificial Wall, Or The Real Thing - Choose

One entire wall of Bull's Retreat is actually an artificial climbing wall. Kids especially love this - several of the climbing holds are meant for their little hands. Or if you feel like going for the real thing, there are several rock climbing locations nearby. Either ways, leave it to the professionals to ensure you are safe, and have a good time.

Ride The Polaris RZRs!

Jungle trailing, rock crawling or just dirting. Our Polaris RZR will give you the ride of a lifetime! So come, get your hands dirty...actually quite a bit more than that we must admit. Your safety is tantamount, so definitely not a ride for the kids. Let the Polaris RZR blow you away!!

 
Nature Walk

Nature Walk

For A View Of The Ganga That Will Take Your Breath Away!

Just behind Bull's Retreat is an uphill path that leads to a view point from where you can get a breathtaking view of the Ganga. It's a continuous climb up (and logically therefore, a continuous climb down when you return)so we don't recommend it for our senior guests. We did say it would take your breath away!

 
Bungee Jumping, Flying Fox

Bungee Jumping, Flying Fox

Go ahead, challenge yourself!

If jumping from a height of 83 meters with rubber cords tied to your ankles gives you a high, take the dive we say! By the way, just so you have some perspective, the highest point of the Qutab Minar is 72.5 meters! There's also Asia's longest Flying Fox - you move at 165 km/hr across the river and live to tell the tale! These activities are all managed by Jumpin Heights, a professional outfit in Rishikesh designed and operated by experts from New Zealand.

 
Mountain Biking

Conquer the off-road trails

Your ride here is the Firefox Target 21 speed mountain bike with thick tyres more comfortable for shock absorption. There are some amazing off-road mountain trails to tackle near Bull's Retreat itself, so if biking is your thing, just let us know and we will organize it for you.

 

Ganga Aarti

At Rishikesh

The evening Ganga Aarti at Rishikesh is special and if you've never witnessed it, we urge you to take an evening out to visit this spectacular ceremony. Let us know when you'd like to go, and we will make the arrangements to drive you there and back in time for a bonfire and some sumptuous snacks.
