Reting Tsangpo Whitewater Rafting multi-day expedition. This incredible river journey was first paddled by Lhasa based tour agency – Tibet Wind Horse Adventure in 2005. They access the Reting Tsangpo valley via a high pass, driving in from the Drigung Valley. This expedition uses vehicle support while the river team paddle big water through incredible alpine juniper forests and past nomad camps. In high water, big volume rapids are interspersed by lazy flat sections and awesome surf waves for kayakers. This is the quintessential Tibetan rafting experience. Its wonderful mix of mountains, nomads, monasteries and whitewater.
Tibet Wind Horse Adventure is the only company in Tibet with permits to run whitewater rafting tours.
Due to the permit situation Wind Horse cannot keep full time river guides in Lhasa through the summer rafting season so they can only arrange 12 day or more expeditions for 4 or more people international guides. They will include the Driging Chu, and other rivers in your expedition itinerary. They use international trip leaders and local guides. Their international rafting guides and safety kayakers have extensive experience running challenging whitewater expeditions in the Himalaya and elsewhere. Expert safety kayakers are used on every whitewater run. All clients are provided with international standard safety equipment including a full wetsuit, helmet and buoyancy vest. They use state of the art rafts, kayaks and equipment.
When they design your itinerary we consider seasonal weather patterns, water levels and temperatures, altitude, accessibility, as well as surrounding scenery and cultural sites to ensure that you have the best possible experience on the water.
