Rafting the Wild Waters of the Brahmaputra RiverIndia

Enter the maelstrom of India’s wildest rafting adventure in one of the world’s most inaccessible regions. Fair warning: for the faint of heart this ain’t. From Delhi, you’ll spend a couple of days overlanding through villages and tropical cloud rainforest to Purang, a region alongside the border of India and Nepal. Here you’ll prep your gear (and your mind) for negotiating rapids from classes three to six.

Now, all that’s left is to take the plunge. Tumble down the foaming torrents that have carved out the centuries-old rock of remote hillsides, fringed by tribal settlements and abundant rainforest, and bob through vast gorges like Marmong, which can only be accessed by raft. Laze away the evenings at your riverside camp, lulled to sleep by the babbling waters you’ve just plunged down.


The 13-day Brahmaputra River Expedition with Pioneer Expeditions starts at US$3050.
