waters, but with promise of a passage through some of
picturesque riverside of Himalayan rivers.
Professionals can run the better known and popular
routes on rapids grade III - IV and V. Options include a
half day scenic run for amateurs on low waters and the
choice of overnight river side camps adds to the beauty

steep cliffs and lush green forests, the river rages on,
dissipating its energy only when it reaches the plains.

thrilling adventure which takes you right into the heart
of Himalayan fury. You have to try and tame the
untamable. And later as you rest, all passions spent,
you will want to re-live the experience over and over
