Trip Description
The Zanskar Rafting Expedition begins with a couple of days to acclimatize in Leh, and then onward into the Zanskar Valley, one of the coldest inhabited places on earth. You'll be able to explore at close range the desolate, remote Zanskar gorge with walls rising a few thousand feet out of the river bed, culminating on the mighty Indus river.

The trip is a demanding one of medium difficulty. As this is an expedition, everyone will be expected to participate in pitching tents, washing dishes, and helping to load and unload the rafts.

Thanks to the rafts, you'll be seeing locations you wouldn't be able to access otherwise, but days can be long. A typical day begins at 7 a.m, and we stop only by 14:00 or 15:00 hrs.
