RaftingZANSKAR! Sounds magical, doesn't it?
And, why not? When the gods were creating the world they bestowed a landscape so unique to the region that magical is the only adjective that qualifies it.

Hemmed in from three sides by The Great Himalayan Range, The Pir Panjal Range and The Zanskar Range, its scraggy mountains, snow laden peaks, barren valleys with the cerulean sky tells you the tale of the hardiness and spirit of the people of the land.

And that's not all; the area has an extraordinary hydroscopic system with the Zanskar River forming the only outlet by scything through the Zanskar range to form those towering canyons and deep gorges that are a trademark of this river. The trip takes you down the extremely uninhabited, inaccessible and 150 km of the vintage Zanskar gorge with walls rising thousands of feet above the fast moving waters to finish on the powerful River Indus.

The river also forms a unique mode of travel, a waterway by summer and frozen road by winter. But hold on to your horses! And wait till you get there……
ZANSKAR! The river of dreams awaits you.

What to Expect
A part from the unexpected, the very best of Ladakh & Zanskar.

The myriad colours on the mountains that keep changing with the angle of the sun, ancient villages with their mud houses, the Karsha monastery perched on a 600 ft vertical mountain face, superb camaraderie and of course….Scintillating White water.

The rafting starts at Remala on the river Doda with some Grade II rapids and then we join the River Tsarapchu to form the Zanskar at by the time we culminate the trip at Alchi one would have gone through some some grade III & IV rapids as well.
