|White Water Rafting
| One of the adventure sports
that Sikkim offers you is river rafting. The snow fed mountain rivers
Teesta and Rangit that descend from their icy heights across high cliff
suspended gorges and torturous, boulder-strewn beds offers you a
unbeatable challenge. Amateurs and first timers have their choice of
quieter waters, but with promise of a passage through some of
picturesque riverside of Himalayan rivers.
Professionals can run the better known and popular routes on rapids
grade III - IV and V. Options include a half day scenic run for amateurs
on low waters and the choice of overnight river side camps adds to the
beauty in the entire adventure.
Teesta is ideal for both paddle rafting and oar rafting, and brings
fresh excitement for adventure lovers. The rivers of Sikkim simply
sparkle and beckon.
The swift waters of Sikkim flows over rocks and crags, turbulent and
delirious. Flanked on both the sides by steep cliffs and lush green
forests, the river rages on, dissipating its energy only when it reaches
the plains. This churning, frothing water is just perfect for white
water rafting. It's a struggle with elemental forces, a thrilling
adventure which takes you right into the heart of Himalayan fury. You
have to try and tame the untamable. And later as you rest, all passions
spent, you will want to re-live the experience over and over again.
