  • Trip introduction

    The Sutlej river basin in Himachal Pradesh covers an area of about 6,553 square kilometers. On this trip we drop over 350 metres within the first two days, running continuous class 3+/4 rapids, and enjoying some truly amazing whitewater rafting opportunities.This is a challenging expedition with adrenaline-packed on offer.

    IMPORTANT: This is not a fixed-departure trip and will require a minimum of 8 pax to make a booking.

    Destination

    You can expect some dramatic landscapes on this expedition. The Satlej is one of only three trans-Himalayan rivers originating in the high Tibetan Plateau (near the Mansarovar lake) that cuts across the mighty Himalayan ranges - the Zanskar range, the Great Himalayan Range, and the Dhauladhar Range. It enters India through a fearsome gorge near the Shipki La.

    Beginning our trip from Rampur Bushair, we drop over 350 metres in the first two days of running continuous Class 3+/4 rapids, and ending at Tattapani, 42 kms upstream of the massive Kol dam site, which will form a massive lake till Tattapani in the years to come.
