The rafting campsites lie on banks of India's most exciting rivers like

Rafting in Garhwal Region
The sacred river Ganga, or the Holy Ganges, offers the professional as
well as the amateur, the sheer exhilaration of white water rafting.
The Alaknanda and the Bhagirathi, are the main tributaries of the
Ganga, and meet at Devprayag, frothing from their racy descent. Their
waters are Grade IV and Grade V, challenging the expert to survive the

novice, for here, the river offers some fine Grade III rapids, and two
Grade II rapids, the 'wall' at Bysi and the 'Golf Course" 4 kms
below Shivpuri village; each followed by deep and placid pools.
Rafting - Spiti
The wonderful adventure from Manali to Simla includes a 03 day run on
the scenic Spiti river, surrounded by mountains and vehicular sight
seeing trips and day hikes to historic monasteries and old villages.
Rafting - Brahamaputra
Rafting down the mighty Brahamaputra with its icy cold waters from just
below its source of snow capped mountains, gushing down to the plains of
Assam is not an easy task. Rafting over its massive waves would be the
greatest feat of thrill, excitement and human endurance. Rafting down
the Brahamaputra River holds the same challenge for the rafters as the
Everest holds for the Mountaineers. With their pure blue and cascading
white water rapids, Brahamaputra makes a cascading view and keeps on
alluring with their attraction time and again. This river has got IV - V
and VI grade rapids, which can be risky.
Rafting down the Brahamaputra is a 12 day expedition. The exhilaration
of running through a rapid, the feeling of excitement and thrill, to
ride over the high waves, the challenges of big holes with circulating
currents, the feeling of being one with nature, the scenic beauty of the
surroundings and thrills of camping out in the wilderness, are some of
the combined factors which inspires one to take this adventure of river
rafting in India.
A range of rafting options is available on the Indus and its major
tributaries. The best stretch for professionally guided runs in white
water is on the Indus between Spituk and Saspol. Beyond Saspol, the
river becomes difficult and funning it requires technically skilled
participants and careful organization.
Upward of Spituk, the Indus has the easiest stretch up to Karu, ideal
for basic training and for day-return "scenic floating" for
amateurs. In recent years, running the Indus has become an attractive
alternative to trekking.
