Ganga Falls, Ganga Greenways, cycle, walk nature trail in NCR Delhi
A fulfilling and relaxing weekend on Ganga’s Eye candy – Spend time in roaring waters of 12 feet of waterfalls, feel the spray, walk down into the falls and ramp. Enjoy the heritage water wheel, water mill (Pan Chakki), cycle, run or walk along the waterways 10 kms and soak in that “spiritual feeling” at Chota Haridwar’s Ganga ghats with clean cool waters coming from the Himalayas at 250,000 liters per second.
Saving the lifeline of Delhi NCR…
We have witnessed the Yamuna and the Hindon become toxic & unsuitable for life over the years due to neglect. But somehow, the flowing natural mountain water from the Himalayas which traverses through the NCR as Ganga Canal survives, thus needs to be preserved in the interest of public health of citizens as it offers quality water for both urban and rural areas.
To protect & conserve this precious water-resource and to ensure quality water-security for NCR region, we have undertaken various initiatives since past few years; mobilizing locals and involving them as stakeholders in its conservation.
To deliver upon Inclusive Local Actions, we have mentored local rural people & youth along the Ganga Canal region in NCR towards the cause of preservation; making them aware about its properties and importance for their own-wellbeing while creating livelihood opportunities in the form of rural tourism, eco heritage culture, cold milled flours and working on fresh water fisheries thus trying to bridge the inequality in line with the sustainable development goals for delivering upon creating sustainable inclusive communities.
