About
Description
Bull's Retreat (Originally Aaranyya by the Ganges) is named after its mentor Col. Narinder 'Bull' Kumar, one of India's most celebrated mountain climbers. The resort welcomes adventurers and pilgrims alike. More Nestled amidst a lush forest and landscaped gardens on the Badrinath yatra route, it's just a 30 min drive from Rishikesh. Rafting and trekking for the adventurous, or yoga and mediation on the beach by the Ganga river just a 10 minute walk away, for the introspective - take your pick. Less

Not sure if you are looking for any specific Ganges location, otherwise rishikesh/shivpuri is located on sides of Ganges. You will have white sand beaches and rafting points close by this resort to touch and enjoy in water.
