The Experiences

Though the stunning location and spiritual vibes makes the location perfect for yoga & meditation, this unique destination packs memorable experiences for one and all. There are many options for those who love the outdoors and outdoor activities. From white-water rafting, a lesson in kayaking, angling, body surfing, rock climbing and mountain biking to village walks, brief nature treks, birding and an exciting late-night leopard safari. One can also walk to a nearby pristine waterfall and enjoy a refreshing shower under the clean flowing mountain waters.

Slow Living

Step out of your fast-paced life and wind down in the beautiful surroundings of Banyan By The Ganges. The sound of birds, the gurgling Ganga, and the fresh mountain breeze create the perfect atmosphere that puts you at ease and lets you naturally slip into relaxation mode. In other words, here you can just DISCONNECT to RECONNECT with yourself.

Yoga & Meditation

Let nature set the stage for a digital detox. Practice your daily Yoga and Meditation under the Banyan calmed by the soothing energy of the river. Connect with your spirit and align yourself back to perfect harmony.

Nature, Hikes & Walks

Nature and village walks are at the heart of any Questrails Experience, allowing you a glimpse of rural living in remote mountain regions and the vast range of vegetation specific to the area. The Himalayan mountains covered in virgin forests are home to many species of animals like the ghural, barking deer, yellow-throated marten, civets and a variety of birds which can be easily spotted along these walks.

Rafting & Kayaking

Dare the rapids or simply drift away. The mighty Ganga offers the perfect white-water rafting experience and an ideal weekend getaway for first-timers, non-swimmers and families. The upper valley tributaries of the Ganga, the Alaknanda and the Bhagirathi are reasonable expedition-level rivers and have been host to many great white-water paddlers across nations.


Located by the confluence of the Nayar and the Ganga where the Golden Mahseers feed, our retreat is a beautiful site for game fishing. Just bring along your skill, patience and tenacity to reel in your golden moment at Banyan By The Ganges, the favoured casting spot for Golden Mahseer.


Unleash the explorer within as Banyan By the Ganges offers opportunities galore. Awaken your spirituality in the religious early morning and evening Arti at Devprayag’s Raghunathji temple or trek to the Danda Nagraja hilltop temple. Tap in the excitement of racing the zig-zag roads on a mountain bike or hiking to an old-world bridge. Watch the village life from close quarters or join in community work. Take a stroll for a refreshing bath in a nearby waterfall or sit back to watch the stars deep into the night.
