The five kilometer rafting was not only fun filled but it built confidence among the girls. Whosoever was afraid of entering water, had concurred the fear of water bodies. The girls landed on the sandy banks of river and had photo shoots in the sunny and sandy dunes on the river banks.
It was time for the lunch and the team at the Ultimate Survival Camp was ready with meals. The contestants did a site orientation and were given strict instructions on do’s and don’ts.
