White Water Rafting

Experience the thrill of white water rafting in India along tumbling snow-fed Himalayan Rivers in summer destinations in India. One of the best regions for river rafting in India is the stretch up to Rishikesh in Uttaranchal.


White water rafting on the Alaknanda, Bhagirathi and Ganga rivers is a popular adventure tourism activity in summer in India. For the more adventurous traveler, white water rafting tours in India can also be organized on the Indus River in Ladakh and Brahmaputra River in Arunachal Pradesh. The scenic beauty of nature, the crystal clean river and the thrill of challenging the uncontrollable power of nature combine together to make white water rafting in India such a unique experience.


With an inflated rubber raft or white water kayak you can cruise down the roaring waves and swirling water. It is not going to be a smooth sailing experience but you do not want it to be smooth either. It is the adrenalin rush of the rough and tumbling water that adds fun to the entire event. The deafening roar of the white foam is a heart pumping experience. A high level of physical and mental fitness is required. People suffering from cardiac problems are requested against indulging in these activities.


India has a large number of rivers and streams. These water ways provide excellent opportunity for rafting. In the mountainous terrains of the Himalayas, the rivers are fast and rough. The challenge to raft on these fast water is high. Adventurous people love to take up the challenge. Ganges is the most popular river in India as far as river rafting is concerned. The 70 km stretch from Devprayag to Rishikesh provide excellent river rafting facilities.


The streams in Ladakh and Sikkim also are excellent rafting zones. May to November is the best time to go for a river rafting tour. It is surely going to be an adventure seekers paradise. International tourists must obtain permits from Ministry of Internal Affairs, Foreigners' Regional Registration Offices.
