Overview

White Water Rafting in the crystal clear blue water of river Teesta offers you a thrilling adventure while you traverse the majestic landscapes of the Himalayan foothills. The River Teesta and its tributary Rangit thunder down the mountains of Darjeeling and create foaming white water and stretches with varying rapids that are excellent for rafting. Teesta River has been ranked at Grade 4 on the international scale. Teesta has a series of rapids with intermittent intensity and character while its tributary Rangit has more turbulent waters and offers a greater challenge.

Know More about this tour

You will be picked from your hotel or fixed point within Darjeeling and driven to Teesta Bazar, where you will meet your instructor. After a brief introduction and important instructions, youll set out for your fun-filled and thrilling White Water Rafting adventure.

Experienced river guides will take you on a safe journey down the river. Whether you are a seasoned rafter or a novice, at Teesta there are provisions and courses earmarked for both. Once you get your helmet, life jacket, a pair of oars and your raft, youll be ready to hit the challenging waters of the turbulent Teesta and Rangit.

The River Teesta originates from Tso Lhamo Lake in North Sikkim at an altitude of over 5,330 meters and its tributary Rangit, originates from a glacier of Mount Kabru. Both finally meet at a place which is close to Teesta Bazar. This meeting point is known as Triveni. Your White Water Rafting experience will start from a point called the 7th Mile and continue down until Labarbote, which will take about 30 minutes to one hour (depending on the speed of the river).

As you raft down Teesta, you will have wonderful views of the dense forests along the slope of the mountains, various birds, fish in the water, and small villages on both sides of the river. These views combined with the excitement of rafting through the torrents and foaming waters create an unforgettable experience.

When your rafting journey ends at Labarbote point, you will be met and then driven back to your hotel / fixed point at Darjeeling.
