The bracing mountain breeze wafting over the emerald green meadows and the towering snow capped peaks reflecting on the crystal clear lake waters make Kashmir one of the most captivating hideouts in the Indian Himalaya. The region offers oodles of nail-biting activities from strenuous treks and peak climbing to skiing and river rafting. River rafting in Jammu and Kashmir is one such activity that fills the itinerary with some slashing moments. Whitewater rafting is one of the most captivating as well as physically demanding adventure sports around the world. Best places for rafting are on Indus and Zanskar rivers which flow towards the plains, gushing between steep gorges and densely forested hills. Tumbling down in swift currents across boulder strewn-beds, these fast flowing rivers provide a high-action adrenaline rush like no other.
The Zanskar gorge is simply spectacular. The sheer walls of the gorge rise thousands of feet from the river bed into oblivion. The river offers several rapids and passes through some very rough terrain and remote places. River Indus offers popular rafting points from Phey to Nimo, Upshi to Nimo and Upshi to Kharu. Nimo is the confluence point of Indus and Zanskar Rivers where the jade waters of the Indus mix with the mud colored waters of the Zanskar. White water rafting in Ladakh is also the best way to experience the incomparable beauty of the region.
River Sind in Sonmarg and River Lider in Langabal are places in Kashmir Valley for rafting. So build up the confidence and let loose on the best rafting tours in Jammu and Kashmir for a thrilling experience here.
