These spells of swift, intense encounters with foaming, roaring waters are punctuated by many more longer periods of gentle floating, with opportunities to observe natural wonders along the continuously varying canvas of the river banks. Any normal healthy person who does not fear water can raft.
Rivers have for ages been the arteries of communication and culture; only now they are being used for recreation and adventure.
The ride along the Himalayan rivers is simply exhilarating. Paddling through the rapids and battling with the wild white waters as the beauty of the jungle rushes at you from both sides and the crystal clear water river bed smiles from below - this is the magic of river running.
Hiring of equipment, including crash helmets, can easily be arranged at very reasonable rates. The equipment provided conforms to the highest safety standards followed anywhere. The period for rafting is from April to September.
To experience this adrenaline pumping and action-packed activity, one can get proficiency in just a few hours of training, facilities for which exist in different parts of the country. There is also provision for expert guidance on boards as well as logistics and rescue facilities. Many tourist agencies and state departments conduct courses in river-rafting. Apart from rafting, the thrills of kayaking and canoeing can also be experienced in these rivers.
