River Rafting Himalayas

Major River Rafting Sites Devprayag, Rishikesh, Kaudiyala, Asan Barrage, Ladakh
Major Rivers Ganges, Brahmaputra, Teesta, Beas and Zanskar

The Indian sub-continent perhaps had the largest network of rivers in the world. Of all the rivers, Ganga is the most beautiful river. It is the most suitable river for white water rafting. The Himalaya River Rafting Tour is a very short river rafting tour. Rafting on its waters will be a certainly an unusual experience for us. In this tour we will have river rafting in Deoprayag where the two major rivers - Alakananda and Bhagirathi merge to form the holy river Ganges and also in Kaudiyala and Shivpuri. The most popular rafting sites include Ladakh in Jammu & Kashmir, the Garhwal Himalayas in Uttaranchal, the Beas River of Himachal Pradesh and Teesta River in Sikkim. The main rivers is include Ganges, Brahmputra, Teesta, Beas, Zanskar.

Rivers for Rafting in Himalayas
 

Origin of Ganges : Gangotri Glacier
Altitude : 14,000 ft.
Importance of Ganges River : Holiest of All Rivers
Course Taken By Ganga River : Rishikesh, Haridwar, Varanasi, Prayag.

River Ganges or Ganga (Holy River)

Ganges river is a major river of the Indian subcontinent, associated in myth and reality with the land and people of India as well as neighboring countries like Bangladesh. Sources & Tributaries - The Gangotri Glacier, a vast expanse of ice five miles by fifteen, at the foothills of the Himalayas (14000 ft) in North Uttar Pradesh, is the source of Bhagirathi, which joins with Alaknanda (origins nearby) to form Ganga at the craggy canyon-carved town of Devprayag. Interestingly, the sources of Indus and the Brahmaputra are also geographically fairly close; the former goes through Himachal Pradesh and fans out through Punjab and Sind (Pakistan) into the Arabian Sea. The latter courses for most of its tremendous length under various names through Tibet/China, never far from the Nepal or Indian borders, and then takes a sharp turn near the northeastern tip of India, gathers momentum through Assam before joining the major stream of the Ganga near Dacca in Bangladesh to become the mighty Padma, river of joy and sorrow for much of Bangladesh.

From Devprayag to the Bay of Bengal and the vast Sunder bans delta, the Ganga flows some 1550 miles, passing (and giving life to) some of the most populous cities of India, including Kanpur (2 million), Allah bad, Varanasi, Patna, and Calcutta (14 million). Dacca, the capital of Bangladesh is on a tributary of the Brahmaputra, just before it joins the Ganga to form Padma. A large number of tributaries join and flow from the Ganges to drain the Northern part of India and Bangladesh.

River Yamuna M o r e  I n f o.

The Yamuna, which originates less than a hundred miles east of the Bhagirathi, flows parallel to the Ganga and a little to the south for most of its course before merging with the Ganga at the holy city of Allah bad, also known as Triveni Sangam, literally, Three-way Junction, the third river being the mythical Saraswati which is also supposed to be an underground river. New Delhi, capital of India, and Agra, site of the Taj Mahal, are two of the major cities on the Yamuna.

River Ganges M o r e  I n f o.

Ganga is certainly an unusual experience. And if you want to explore the new areas and have an open mind, you are qualified to join any of the white water rafting trips that are organized on the Ganges. For longer rafting trips require previous experience in this adventure sport. There are many sites in Garhwal and Kumaon region of Uttaranchal that can be tapped as the perfect sites for providing the pleasure of water sports. There are quite a few places, especially in the Garhwal region, which have a latent potential as tourist recreation centers and some hold immense potential for professional rafting.

River Brahmaputra M o r e  I n f o.

One of the great rivers of Asia, the Brahmaputra commences its 3,000-km journey to the Bay of Bengal from the slopes of Kailash in western Tibet. As Tibet's great river, the Tsangpo, transverses east across the high-altitude Tibetan plateau north of the Great Himalayan Range, carving out myriad channels and sandbanks on its way. As it tumbles from the Himalayan heights towards the plains of the subcontinent it twists back on itself, cutting a deep and still navigated gorge, until finally turning south it emerges in Arunachal Pradesh as the Dihong. Just beyond Pasighat, it meets the Dibang and Lohit where it finally becomes the Brahmaputra.

River Teesta

Teesta River is a trans-Himalayan river flowing through Sikkim and is one of the most churning rivers in the Himalayas. It originates from the Cholamu lake and flows south. It passes through West Bengal and joins the Brahmaputra River in Bangladesh. The total length of the river is about 315 km. Teesta River is famous for river rafting. River Teesta of Sikkim extends the most challenging invitation to the rafters in the eastern Himalayan region.

River Beas

The Beas forms the valleys of Kullu and Kangra, famed for their beauty. But ironically, its source is an insignificant looking igloo like structure near Rohtang Pass in Pir Panjal range to the north of Kullu. The main thrust of this river is southward to Larji and then to the west. Where it enters Mandi district and further still into Kangra. On account of its snow-fed, perennial tributaries, its inflow increases greatly during the monsoons, sometimes resulting in floods. At the Pandoh, in Mandi district, the waters of the Beas have been diverted to the Sutlej through 53-km of tunnel, with the Pong Dam constructed on the Beas, for the purpose of increasing the hydroelectric power supply.

Before the birth of Pakistan this configuration of rivers was one of the most magnificent features of the Indian sub-continent. Came 1947, the year of partition and roughly two thirds of the length of this river system was assigned to Pakistan. But the rivers still take birth on the Indian side and still go crashing through the Himalayas to create some of the most spectacular scenery to be found anywhere in the world.
