River rafting

Riding the rapids is to experience the thrill of an encounter with the powerful forces of wind and water. Originating from the fabled Mansarovar lake on the western highlands of Tibet, the river Sutlej slices through several Himalayan ranges, carving out some of the deepest gorges in the world. Through magnificent canyons, fields, hamlets, and pristine sandy beaches, the river makes its panoramic passage. Discover the secrets of the river as you follow its course.
