kayaks, ropes and starry starry nights
Enjoy the the serenity of a lake in a kayak. But don’t mistake the calm Naukuchiatal lake for an easy ride. Certainly not a piece of kayak (haha).
Then there’s a trek to the hills and a night out under the summer moonshine. Another day, clamber up a rope gym. A combo of terrains, skills and moods—serenity and thrill, land and water.

A one of a kind experience of open water kayaking. It’s a great way to learn proper technique, safety and coordination (it takes two to kayak). Deal with capsized kayaks, play kayak polo, rig a wind-sail on a windy day and other drills only possible on a lake. The ropes course is a fun way to learn coordination and the pushes and pulls of partnership. The only way is up! The backpack trek into the hills includes setting up camp at nightfall. Watch the Great Bear and Cassiopeia’s W shape rise over the tree line.
“Having heard stories from his sister, Arav was adamant on experiencing Inme. I was hesitant sending him with strangers, far away, no communication and the comforts he was used to. Seeing his determination we had no choice but to give in. And am I glad! The experience made him more confident.”
–Rashmi Budhiraja, Arav's mother
