|If you've ever stood on the keen edge of an abyss, breathed the rarefied air of a mountain peak, stared into the maw of an approaching rapid, or encountered species in the wilds, you know that tingling feeling that rafting brings with it.
So, whether you are contemplating your first float trip, or wanting to raft down the Grand canyon of India, the River Zanskar, you will find a unique blend of excitement and tranquillity with the fulfilment of intermingling with unique cultures as well. The best time for the Zanskar River expedition is in July and August. This trip is combined with a fascinating jeep safari from Leh to Padum which is the put in point and then, one exits at Nimu near Leh.
The holy Ganges and Yamuna rivers have challenging white water sections also allowing a glimpse of temples. The mighty Zanskar River traverses through its gorge to the confluence of the Indus. The mountain rivers allow for runs from a day trip to longer duration ones which can be combined with a trek or an expedition to tackle remote and difficult rivers.
The Brahmaputra is called the Tsang Po in Tibet before it enters the North East of India in Arunachal Pradesh where it becomes the Siang. This is one of the wildest rivers to raft down in a land of ancient tribes and dense rain forest gorges. Ibex arranges this 7 day rafting expedition from the Northern reaches of Brahmaputra near Tuting all the way down to Pasighat, camping on pristine beaches. The best time for this is in the winter months of November and December.
Ibex ensures your trip has international quality rafts, river guides, rafting equipment such jackets, helmets along with all over aspects such as transport, food and camp facilities.
