Rafting
This is a paragraph with little content.

This is another small paragraph.

  • 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.

    Destination highlights

    • Experience an adrenalin-pumping adventure while running through class 3 and 4 white water rapids
    • Soak-in spectacular views of the Himalayan landscape
    • Explore pristine beaches and old forests en route

    Trip requirements

    Past Experience

    As this is a moderate to challenging rafting expedition, some previous rafting experience will be an advantage. This activity will need a certain degree of cardiovascular fitness and strength. While not often mentioned as a prerequisite, being prepared for the demands of an adventure activity, enhances the experience by reducing physical stress, aids in injury prevention and accelerates recovery.

    Health conditions

    Rafting does not require very high levels of fitness. Nearly anybody over 14 years of age can run nearly all rivers on offer. However, heart patients, pregnant women and persons with any other serious ailments should consult with their doctor before booking the trip.
