Although Indian rivers have been run for decades by professional white water rafting teams there are still some advanced virgin stretches to run. The sport, for a long time was exclusively limited to the northern rivers but is now being done where ever there are rapids. We've even heard of kayaking being done near the outlet of some dams & hydel projects.(info as soon as we get it). There are many professional outfits that run rivers such as the Alaknanda, Ganga, Bhagirathi, Indus, Zanskar and Teesta that offer amazing experiences while challenging rapids as the next step. A trip down one of these rivers with the right guys are a experience in self-realisation and a fantastic way to meet the locals & view the countryside. These are the ones we had amazing expriences with >>>

An Important Note River rafting in some areas may require special
permits from the government. Areas close to India's international borders, such as Nubra, Sikkim, Lahaul and Spiti may be off-limits to foreigners and nationals without a valid permit. Permits can usually be obtained fairly easily from District Commissioners, District Magistrates or other senior officials. Enquire at the Ministry of Home Affairs in New Delhi to figure out whether you need a permit, and who can provide it to you. Most outfits will help you get the permits or include it in their package cost.

Do not spoil the ecosystem. Respect the the land, and don't do anything that's likely to harm the environment. Don't leave a trail of litter and waste behind you; carry your own fuel, food and supplies, and don't use detergents or other chemicals which could wash into the river and pollute it
