River Rafting Tour in Bhutan

7 Days

The clean and clear rivers of Bhutan are one of the kingdom’s best-kept open secrets. Kayakers and rafters have scouted the six rivers (Wang Chhu, Sunkosh, Puna Tsang Chhu, Mangde Chhu, Kuri Chhu, and Dangme Chhu and their tributaries) fed by the Eastern Himalayas.

River Rafting and Kayaking Tour in Bhutan is a new adventure activity introduced recently in Bhutan. It is done mostly in Punakha in central Bhutan and Manas River in the south. Kayaking and River rafting in Bhutan is a unique experience unlike many of the more crowded rafting offered in Asia. The rafting ranges from simple grade 1 to fast-flowing rivers of Bhutan.
