Rafting in India

Fight the tide
Once again, it is the Himalayas. All the liquid that melt down the snow-plumed mountains thunder into the rivers and gorges to give India her share of ‘aqua-might’! The gush of the currents, the tumultuous waters ready to engulf you any moment --- adrenaline are an endless hormonal doze for the fast and the furious and its white-waters are internationally acclaimed as amongst the bests.

The Favorite Rafting zones
The Ganges: About 257 km from Delhi, is Rishikesh. Some 28 km upstream from here on the Alaknanda river is India’s best white water rafting zone. This Brad Pitt (Hollywood Star) favorite run starts at Kaudiyala and ends at Shivpuri, passing through pine and oak wooded hills dotted with rare wild fauna, frothing into the famed rapids --- ‘Wall’ at Bysi and the 4-km ‘Golf-Course’. Go there between October to March and through the winter. The route Rudraprayag-Rishikesh on Alaknanda, passes through Srinagar and Devprayag forming grade III or IV rapids and some of India’s holiest sites and temples, good for those who would like to bland some spiritual rejuvenation to the adventure. Other runs are --- Chandrapuri-Rudraprayag (26 km, higher grades) on the Mandakini; Matli-Dunda (12 km, mixture of grades), Jangla-Jhala (20 km, a mixture of grades), Harsil-Uttarkashi, Dharasu-Chham (12 km, a mixture of grades) on the Bhagirathi.
Rafting in India

The Zanskar: Gentler than the Alaknanda’s and Bhagirathi’s and excellent for beginners, the Zanskar, arising near the Himachal-Jammu & Kashmir border, has the Phey-Nimmu route (Grade II or III) and Phey-Nimmu route (Grade II or III). Magnificent monasteries, colorful fluttering flags, verdant valleys beckon adventurers for quick tea-breaks en route.

The Teesta: The Teesta river meanders down the craggy eastern Himalayan mountains savoring a blend exciting designer-rapids (Grade III or IV) at Sikkim, just excellent for kayaking or rafting. Makha and Rongpo, stretches between Dikchu and Teesta Bridge and Bordang and Melli are the best runs.

The Kali River: At the Indo-Nepalese international boundary, this meandering river makes an exhilarating blend of long float trips, great angling and class III/IV white water rafting. Visit during October to May.

Brahmaputra Rafting: The mighty Brahmaputra snakes through the northeastern India, both mystifying and destructing the coastlines with its water. For rafters, it awaits intriguing courses with multi-rapids. The Subansiri, one of its major tributary, has deep gorges waiting for you between the months of November and March.

Rafting tidbits:
Best time to go: Himalayan rivers are best rafted during summers (fastest currents), i.e. June and July. But for beginners, August and September, when waters are lower and more manageable, is the best time. The Teesta is one of the few rivers where river rafting is confined to the winter months, between October and April.

Essentials: Lifeline, throw bags, tested life jackets, helmets and paddles are arranged for. We also get a safety Kayaker traveling with each trip for your safety.

With expert guides and the latest equipments, becoming river-smart is easy. Anyone and everyone is eligible, swimmers and non-swimmers, young and old. Hydrophobics avoid! They can instead try trekking and relish the camping-in-the-wild, activities we blend with your rafting tours.
