In a first of its kind initiative, Leisure Hotels Group (LHG), and Paddy Adventures India (PAI) have introduced river rafting on the Kosi river in Corbett.
Leisure Hotels Group is the largest resort chain in Corbett, with 2 upper-upscale & 1 luxury resort, that adds up to the maximum number of keys in the world’s second most popular Wildlife National Park. The hotel chain is witnessing an influx of visitors this monsoon season following the decision to open Corbett Tiger Reserve for round-the-year tourism by the State Govt.
Highlighting the popularity of Corbett as a wildlife destination, Vibhas Prasad, Director, Leisure Hotels Group said “Our properties are located on the banks of river Kosi and a stone’s throw away from Corbett National Park. In addition to the already teeming demand for Wildlife tourism, Corbett now also becomes a magnet for adventure tourism during the perceived off-season months of July – September”.
Pardeep Raj Singh, Director, Paddy Adventures Pvt Ltd. said “Kosi is ideal for Class II rapid rafting during the monsoon season making it an ideal experience for beginners. These water activities are organised under the aegis of Mandal Vikas Nigam (KMVN). Our rafting packages include short & long trips for four people in a raft.
