  • Trip introduction

    Embark on a professional, rafting expedition over the Subansiri River in Arunachal Pradesh. For a week spent in the mountain wilderness, you'll go rafting for 5-6 hours every day over rapids rated class III and IV. You'll hop into your inflatable rafts, wearing wetsuits, and prepare to navigate some of the most challenging twists and turns of the river. At night, you'll set up camp at the most stunning locations in the north-eastern Himalayas. These isolated and unmarked campsites, rarely frequented by anyone else, offer magnificent, unfiltered views of the jungle terrain and mountain slopes.

    Destination

    The Subansiri River, fed by the melting glaciers of the Great Himalayan Range, flows down from Tibet and merges with the massive Brahmaputra River in India. Along the way, the river makes its way through mountains and hills of Arunachal Pradesh, marking a route that is far away from any towns or villages. The isolated nature of the river's course kept it from being discovered as the home of some of the best class III and IV rapids in the country. Even today, the breath-taking vertical rockfaces of the river have been rafted only by a handful of commercial expeditions.
