River Rafting Sikkim

River Teesta of Sikkim extends the most challenging invitation to the rafters in the eastern Himalayan region. Teesta provides a series of whitewater rapids with various intensities at regular intervals. Meandering down the rough and rugged mountain river, one can savour a blend of nature and adventure.

White water rafting is one of the latest adventure sport in Sikkim. Only the Teesta and Rangit rivers offer long stretches which are ideal for safe rafting. Teesta is graded 4 on the International scale. The icy cold waters of the rugged Teesta have a series of rapids with varying intensity and character. It offers one of the finest rafting stretches in the world. Rangit, a tributary of the Teesta, has more turbulent waters and offers many challenges to more experienced rafters.

For Kayaking

Kayaking is undertaken on the River Teesta and is arranged for special groups. Some experience in kayaking is required. Kayaks are available with Sikkim Tourism.

Equipment Required for Rafting

Wet suits, sweater, booties, gloves and scull cap are some of the essential equipment for river rafting. These equipments can be hired also.

Best Time for River Rafting in Sikkim

May to November

About Teesta River

The River Teesta, said to be the lifeline of the Indian state of Sikkim, flows for almost the entire length of the state; carving out verdant Himalayan temperate and tropical river valleys. The emerald coloured river then forms the border between Sikkim and West Bengal before joining the Brahmaputra as a tributary in Bangladesh.

The river originates in the mysterious Cho Lhamu Lake at an elevation of 5,330 m (17,500 feet) above sea level in the mighty Himalayas. This lake lies to the north of the Donkia Pass near Shetschen, where the summit of the pass is about eight kilometres north-east of Darjeeling as the crow flies.

Click For More Info About Himalayan Rivers

Before the birth of Pakistan this configuration of rivers was one of the most magnificent features of the Indian sub-continent. Came 1947, the year of partition and roughly two thirds of the length of this river system was assigned to Pakistan. But the rivers still take birth on the Indian side and still go crashing through the Himalayas to create some of the most spectacular scenery to be found anywhere in the world.
