Whitewater Rafting

Whitewater Rafting in Sikkim

Whitewater Rafting in SikkimA tiny float called a "raft", a helmet, a life jacket and a pair of oars - and you are ready to hit the challenging waters of the turbulent Teesta and Rangeet. Did we forget to add your skill or experience? That's the point - you may be a novice at rafting, but our experienced and well-trained river guides take on themselves to execute and ensure a safe trip along the river. Rafting is not just smiting the furrows with an oar. It includes exhilaration, the promise of a total union with Nature, where you can kiss the pellucid water with its virginal hue. You can rendezvous into forest pockets for the love of Nature or enter a quiet, scenic village sagely. Retreat into yourself to meditate on the pristine surroundings as the raft gently floats down the river. Girdling the mountains in a passionate hug flows the beautiful Teesta to meet at the confluence with her beloved, Rangeet. Here starts their romance which captivates even the hearts of flint. You can see the different shades of the two rivers merging into one another. This enchantment carries on to the ringing plains through tiny picturesque villages set amid alpine and tropical vegetation. For the sportive and brave, rafting is a "must" to reveal to you the secrets of mysterious Nature. Come, encompass the geography, the flora - fauna, the bio-diversity and the music of Nature in your heart and let them leave engravings in your mind for the ages to come.
