HOME >> Trekking in India >> The Brahmaputra River Expedition

Activity:  Rafting
Lodging Lodge/Camp Mix

Trip Summary:
An exciting journey down one of the world's greatest rivers, an option only for the true adventurer. The river, after flowing gently eastwards through Tibet, cuts the Greater Himalaya and the highest unclimbed mountain in the world, Namche Barwa before it enters Arunachal Pradesh, where the expedition begins, a few miles inside the line-of-control with China. The expedition takes you through remote hillsides dotted with tribal settlements in clearings surrounded by leech-infested rainforest. It negotiates the finest big volume white water in an area, which is surely one of the most inaccessible in the world. A 9 day self contained run from Tuting to Pasighat (180 kms approx.) through one of the most inaccessible regions in the world makes this one of the most premier expeditions offered.

    About Your Guides
    You'll have a safe and enjoyable trip with some of the most experienced guides in the country, who know the terrain, offer great company, equipment which compares with world standards, and a "hands on" operation which guarantees each trip a resounding success. Aided by a wealth of experience and knowledge, the outfit is run at the helm by a duo, who between them, have run more routes and rivers than most people do in a lifetime. The most experienced kayakers and river people in the country today, help out with the operations and logistics. All trips are well complimented by a crew of excellent guides, staff, and cooks who have helped run the trips with a quality that is hard to find on the sub-continent.

    Rafting Equipment & Safety
    Rafts and accessories used for river rafting are imported and are made of tear-resistant nylon based hypalon. Wearing helmets with chin straps fastened and a life-jacket is mandatory which keep the person's head above water in the not-so-common event of MOB (Man-Over-Board). Water-proof bags are kept aboard the raft for keeping cameras on the trip. On the longer self-contained, multi-day expeditions, bigger water-proof bags are carried to keep all baggage on the raft completely dry. Every raft also carries rescue bags and flip lines to counter any emergency. You'll use self-bailing `Hyside' rafts and accessories from Northwest River Supplies (NRS), Idaho, U.S.A for your rafting trip. Every raft trip/expedition carries a repair kit and a first-aid kit in order to make the run completely self contained. A safety briefing is given to everyone before the river run commences which outlines everything from the nature of the river and what to expect, to paddling commands and safety procedures to remember while in white-water. If possible, an easy section is rafted on the first day to orient everyone with rafting
