River Rafting Places in India & Kayak India

1) Ladakh
One of the most popular rafting sites for river rafting in India is Ladakh in Jammu & Kashmir. The rafting trip can be easily started off from the options on the Indus River and most of its major tributaries. You can enjoy some of the professionally guided runs in white water on the Indus amidst Spituk and Saspol. However, if you want to go beyond Saspol, you would face difficulty. You should take professional help if you are keen to go beyond Saspol.

2) White Water River rafting on Zanskar River
This is the most challenging and exciting rafting option. However, it is best suited for well planned expeditions. You should prepare for it several days ahead.

3) Ganges
This rafting experience would be full of amazement and thrill for you. The river has about twelve rapids spread over 36kms long and most of which can be negotiated easily.

4) Himachal Pradesh
You would simply love to get expedition chances amidst rivers Shamshi and Aut on the Beas. The white water rapids are spread over the 20km stretch.

5) Teesta River:
The River of Sikkim has been considered to be the most exciting and challenging one for rafters. It lets you enjoy white water rapids with varied intensities at regular intervals.

Tips for a better river rafting & Kayak India experience:

  • a) Reservations:
    You may find white water rafting sites with walk-ins but it would be really better to make advance reservations to avoid rush during peak season. Decide on the kind of challenges you would like to take and then book reservations online.

  • b) Extra time
    Don't visit on the time appointed for rafting. It would be wise to reach the area before the actual allotted time especially if the area is new to you.
  • c) Meal:
    Focus on having a light meal before you go for your expedition. 
  • d) Clothes:
    You should expect to get wet during the sport. The best thing to wear would be a bathing suit under surfing shorts for women and swim trunks and a t-shirt for men.

Things to Take or not to take
Make sure that you have a set of clean dry clothes and flip-flops for feet to change after the expedition. A waterproof disposable camera is a must. Don't ever take valuable items, sunglasses or your car keys with you.
