  •   Rafting down the river was a blissful experience. The current was gentle so we were drifting along watching the scenery and the birds on the side. Very memorable experience.

The most of the rivers in Bhutan are very steep and highly rushing with limited road access makes it considerably unsuitable for white water rafting. Only a few rivers are opened for rafting considering their safe course and easy access.

The Pho Chu, with its  approx 10 km course with about 9 rapids of class 2 – 3+ is the most popular for rafting in Bhutan followed by Mo Chu river with 10 Km course comprising around 10 rapids with 1 – 2+ rapids.

Rivers in Bhutan also offer great potential for Kayaking as well. If you are looking for more adventure, we will be happy to customize a suitable Kayaking adventure in Bhutan.
