WATER RAFTING IN LADAKH
"WHITE WATER RAFTING"
One of the many wonderful activities that the landscape of Ladakh offers its guests is river rafting. Rafting in Ladakh is one of the most underappreciated activities in the region, but also one of the most adventurous adventure par excellence, which provides the best opportunity to enjoy and experience the natural beauty of the spectacular landscape with deep canyons, towering snow-capped peaks, hilltop monasteries, hillside villages, and glimpses of the unique wildlife. Ladakh is home to the Indus river, which flows across its northern region before entering Pakistan. Though the river here is just beginning to gain momentum, the rapids to be found within it are of a force and intensity that make rafting in it a marvelous experience. Rafting can also be enjoyed on the rapids of the Zanskar river. The force of the waters along with the twists and turns of the river makes whitewater rafting on the Zanskar a memorable adventure. The majesty of the Ladakh landscape adds a lot of depth to the act of rafting. The towering mountains, the chilly winds, the fresh aromas in the air, the freezing waters and the sense of possibility that hangs in the air, all make Ladakh white water rafting a peculiarly intense experience. You can choose the rapid based upon the level of difficulty you are willing to undertake since the rivers have rapids ranging from level I to level IV. Rafting in Leh is not a dangerous experience and can be enjoyed with an easy mind and an eager heart. River rafting adds depth to your Ladakh tour and allows you to enjoy the region in a different manner. Whitewater rafting is not simply an adventure activity you undertake in Ladakh, it is an experience you live through.
