Rafting Tour of North East (18 Anzahl der Tage / 17 Nächte)
Welcome to the rugged and adventurous side of India: Rafting in White Waters. The pious River Ganga mostly flows calmly, but it is in Shivpuri, near Rishikesh in Uttaranchal that the waters gush with mighty force making it an ideal locale for River rafting. The other River is the mighty Brahmaputra that acquires various names as it takes turns flowing down from Tibet to the northeastern part of India. It is Siang and then turns in to Brahmaputra. Exploring this wild and rugged country and rafting some of the most challenging white water sections on this planet, is truly a memorable experience.
