Water Rafting in Ladakh

Water Rafting in Ladakh is adventure par excellence, which provides the best opportunity to enjoy and experience the natural beauty of the spectacular landscape with deep canyons, towering snow-capped peaks, hilltop monasteries, hillside villages, and glimpses of the unique wildlife.

A range of rafting options is available on the Indus and its major tributaries. Water rafting at Indus is much easier and quieter than the Zanskar, the Indus is suitable for Grade II and III trips. The best stretch for professionally guided runs in white water is on the Indus between Spituk and Saspol. Beyond Saspol, the river becomes difficult and funning which requires technically skilled participants and careful organization. Upward to Spituk, the Indus has the easiest stretch up to Karu, ideal for basic training and for day-return "scenic floating" for amateurs.

The most difficult but exciting option for river rafting is on the Zanskar along with its spectacular course through the gorge in the Zanskar Mountains, between Padum and Nimo. Zanskar River originates from the high altitude plateau of Sarchu on the border of Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir. Originally known as the Tsarap the river gorges a path out of the rocky mountains of western Himalayas, dropping in a continuous torrent of class V rapids. This is suitable only for well organized white-water expedition, prepared for several days of river running and camping in absolute wilderness. Participants are required to be trained rafters while the arrangements should be assigned to a dependable professional agency. Adequate arrangements for rescue coverage are an essential pre-requisite for embarking upon a white-water expedition on river like the Zanskar. The best season for river rafting is from June to October.
