  • Trip introduction

    One of the major tributaries of the Brahmaputra, the Kameng river is one of the most beautiful and relatively undiscovered medium-large volume rivers in the world. The sheer volume and flow of this river makes for a demanding expedition with thrilling drops and excellent whitewater rafting opportunities.

    Where is the lugguage stored when travellers are rafting?

    Water-proof bags are kept aboard the raft for keeping cameras on the trip and on longer self-contained, multi-day expeditions, bigger water-proof bags are carried to keep all baggage on the raft completely dry. Every raft also carries rescue bags and flip lines to counter any emergency.

    IMPORTANT: This is not a fixed departure expedition and requires a minimum of 12 participants, for confirmation of the booking.

    Destination

    The Kameng River in the eastern Himalayan mountains, originates in Tawang district from the glacial lake below the snow-capped Gori Chen mountain (20,669 feet) on the India-Tibet border in South Tibet and flows through Bhalukpong circle of West Kameng District, Arunachal Pradesh and Sonitpur District of Assam, India. It is one of the major tributaries of the Brahmaputra River, joining it at Tezpur, just east of the Kolia Bhomora bridge. The Kameng forms the boundary between the Sessa and Eaglenest sanctuaries to its west and the Pakke tiger reserve to the east. Adding to the trilogy of our offerings on the Upper Brahmaputra, Subansari and Lohit rivers, the Kameng is a fascinating medium-large volume river trip with surprisingly consistent rapids, deep gorges, pristine camps and well-preserved old forests.
