River Rafting

River Rafting in Sikkim

River Rafting in SikkimFrom gentle rides through amazing mountain landscape to thundering rapids that only the most experienced rafter can navigate, river rafting on the Teesta can be the most adrenaline pumping adventure ever. Meandering down the rough and rugged mountain river is a great way to enjoy both nature and adventure. The riverbanks have deep forests, with some patches of terraced cultivation, and small villages. Plenty of white sandy beaches exist, offering good campsites. Rapids of classification 2 to 4 are interspersed with placid floats, making rafting an enjoyable experience. A trip down the river also allows you to take in the beauty of the countryside. Beginners as well as experienced adventurers can seek the assistance of the Department of Tourism and travel agents for arranging river rafting trips. Prices are generally reasonable, and will include food, equipment, lifejackets, helmets, an expert guide, and accommodation. Most of these have good riverside camps, and are well-frequented by organised rafting groups during peak season.
