White Water Rafting

Because of the steep terrain, and access difficult, white water rafting on Bhutan’s wild rivers is not viable, but now one can enjoy a superb range of thrilling experiences on a few rivers that are more tame and conducive for the sport.  Through the quieter moments of the ride on the waters, one can feast one’s eyes on the scenic splendour rushing by on the embankments. You can also enjoy some nice photops of the stunning architecture of Punakha Dzong. Rapids can range anything between Grade 2 and Grade 4, allowing rafters of varied skills to enjoy the adventure at their pace. The most popular options are the Mo Chu (female river) and Pho Chu (male river), in Punakha district.
