Rafting in Bhutan is never a regret.
All rivers are rated on a “class” scale to help you determine the size and technicality of the white water. Many of our guests are in search of more moderate white water, simply to relax and soak up the beauty of the scenery. Others are looking or more intense white water.
LEVEL 1-CLASS I RAPIDS:
Moving water with small waves that tug at the boat – it’s a relaxing way to spend the day. Each of our trips has some stretches of calm class I water, creating a pleasant break between rapids.
LEVEL 2-CLASS II RAPIDS:
Easy rapids, waves up to three feet tall that are readily seen, and wide channels that can be discovered without scouting. Some manoeuvring is required during this little rock and roll.
LEVEL 3-CLASS III RAPIDS:
Waves up to four feet and narrow passages that send the boat shimmying and water gushing over its sides. Plenty of excitement.
LEVEL 4-CLASS IV RAPIDS:
Long, challenging rapids, narrow passages, turbulent water that requires precise manoeuvring and sends hearts racing.
We have to book the rafting schedule beforehand as the two rafting rivers are far from Paro and Thimphu, and we do not want the rafting for the day to be fully booked.
