CLIENT FEEDBACK

  •   The flow was not rough and swift enough in the river, to bring in the thrill factor. However, the tide for more than an hour was relaxing. Due to shallow condition of water in the river, only 6 people were allowed per boat. The price...More

  •   Mo chhu river has the female low flow tributory ans its main male high flow rough tributory. The rafting is done on the female tributory hence not that rough but enjoying.

  •   It was really very nice and adventurous trip. We hired two boats. You can feel the tide only at the beginning of the rafting. After that most of the time, not too much current in the water. Little expensive though.

  •   Mochu river is the female river and comparatively gentler than the Pochu River. The Druk Rafting people are professional and ensure complete safety. You will raft by the Punkaha Dzong.

RAFTING IN RIVERS OF BHUTAN

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.
