River Rafting

White water rafting in India is a challenging recreational activity using a raft to navigate a fast-flowing river. White water rafting was introduced in Sikkim & Darjeeling as an adventure sport. Since 1991, the sport has gained tremendous popularity. IHCAE Sikkim along with the Sikkim Tourism Department has made elaborate arrangements for the water lovers all around the world to experience river rafting in Sikkim. You can avail various rafting packages in different Grades depending on the choice & skills of the rafters. Some of the packages combine with overnight camps on the riverbanks. The two spectacular rivers are graded in the international level at I to IV & present one of the finest rafting stretches in the world.

Your experience begins with a briefing session as your rafting guide takes you through the different paddling techniques, safety instructions and what to do when you fall out of the raft. You need to have no rafting experience. You will wear a helmet and life jacket throughout the experience.

And now it's time to ride nature's very own rollercoaster. You will soon discover why white water rafting is such a popular adventure experience. With your guideā€™s help you will battle each rapid, get wet, and then even more wet, scream, pray and finally survive the entire rapids without falling off.

If adventure is what you seek, look no further than White water rafting!! An unmatched experience dwelling on the very verge of risk & danger, the icy cold foaming & roaring waters of Teesta and Rangeet extend a challenging invitation for those willing to tame the rivers.
