River rafting on Zanskar River :

This frigid river originates from the high altitude plateau of Sarchu on the border of Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir. Originally known as the Tsarap the river gorges a path out

of the rocky mountains of western Himalayas, dropping in a continuous torrent of class V rapids. The river then eases into the forbidden Kingdom of Zanskar and slowly flows past the capital at Padum. Here it joins with the Stod river which flows down from the Pensi La pass on the road from Kargil to Padum.

It is from this confluence of the Tsarap and Stod rivers that the mighty Zanskar takes birth.

The river rafting expedition takes you through one of the most breathtaking gorges in Asia. The stark, barren and rocky massifs are interspersed with colorful bands of mineral deposits, which run through entire mountainsides giving it a picture book finish. The expedition finishes at the confluence of the Indus and the Zanskar rivers at Nimmu. The same river in winters is famous for the great Ice walk on the river from Nimmu till Padum and back.

Note: The waters of Zanskar are frigid at 6 – 7 degrees Celsius. Wet suits are mandatory on this trip .
