  •   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.

  •   rafting down the Mo Chhu River is just a gentle drift down the mild rapids. Our families and friends at home had conjured up images of us screaming and falling off the inflatable boat. During the off-season, the Druk Rafting Service charges INR1500 which is...More

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.
