Grading System

Rivers here are graded from class 1 to 6. With class 1 as an easy – moving water with few obstacles and class 6 being considered nearly impossible to negotiate and a hazard to life.

When to go

The best time for rafting are September to early December and March to early June. September to October and May to June can be extremely high monsoon run-off. At this time only experienced rafting company with an intimate knowledge of the river operates the excursion. From the mid- October onward the weather is settled and this is one of the most popular times to raft. In December many rivers become too cold to enjoy, a time to consider a shorter trips. From June to August the monsoon rains arrive and the river flows becomes 10 times the low – water flows.

Raft Numbers

There should be a minimum of two rafts per trip. If anybody does fall out of a raft, the second one can help with the rescue. In high water three raft is safer than two and also many rafters prefer one or two professional kayak’s to run the most difficult rapids on the river.
