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.

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.
