Home Adventure Trail River Rafting Brahmaputra River Rafting

Paddling the Brahmaputra River is an exciting journey down one of the worlds greatest rivers, an option only for the true adventurer. The river flowing gently eastwards through Tibet cuts the greater Himalayas and the highest unclimbed mountain in the world, the Namche Barwa where it enters Arunachal Pradesh. This adventure takes you through remote hillsides dotted with tribal settlements in clearings surrounded by rainforest. The river negotiates the finest large volume white water in an area, which is surely one of the most inaccessible in the world. A 9 day self-contained run from Tuting to Pasighat approximately 180km takes the expedition through one of the most beautiful and culturally rich regions of Indian Himalayas.
