Betwa River

The Betwa or Betravati is a tributary of Yamuna. It is the lifeline of Orchha, flowing along the town, providing livelihood to man and animal both. Traversing a distance of 654 km from near Bhopal (MP) till its confluence with Yamuna near Hamirpur (UP), the river is a lifeline for both the states. Betwa is also mentioned in the Mahabharata as river Shuktimati along which the immense Chedi kingdom rests. UP Govt. took up the Betwa multipurpurpose project in 1958, under which they built the Matatila dam in collaboration with the MP Govt. Today, as a river linking project, Betwa is being merged with Ken river.
We started rafting at 7 am. The total rafting time is 1.5 hours. The cost if 550 INR per person. The rafting experience is very different when compared to Rishikesh, but special on its own. You find view of Ram Raja Temple, Jahangir Mahal and the Chhattris. Settled in the lap of green surroundings and enormous cenotaphs, the colossal Betwa River in Orchha flows right from the Vindhya Range and immerse into the Yamuna. One can enjoy river rafting in the gleaming water of the river while adoring the view of the grand ancient architectures including the Orchha Chhattris as a backdrop.
