THE BHAGIRATHI RIVER RAFTING EXPEDITION- 5 DAYS

  • Manish

Location: Tehri
Duration: 5 Days
Grading: XXXXXXXXX

An excellent option for the adventure seeker down the Ganga and Bhagirathi rivers, the latter being one of the main tributaries of the Ganga river. We drive past the dam at Tehri to reach our put-in 18kms below the Tehri dam downstream of the Paindas dam. The pleasure of travelling down a remote part of this river make it a very exciting trip, besides the whitewater which will leave you wanting more. We raft down the lower Bhagirathi gorge (mostly Grades 3 and 4) with rapids like “Elephant rock”, “The Chute”, “Sharp S”, “Confluence rapids” and many more, till its confluence with the Alaknanda at Devprayag to form the Ganga. A must -do if you are looking for a great river run in Asia.
