White Water Rafting

Raft your heart out and enjoy the amazing riverside camping every night while our company cooks pamper you with some amazing local dishes.

White Water Rafting in Teesta has been introduced by DGHC (Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council, now GTA) in 1991 and has been consistently gaining popularity since then. It’s fun and exciting. In rafting, there are 6 grades or levels of difficulty depending on the rapids or the current in the river. Grade-1 (with flat calm water) is the easiest.

Due to series of rapids and varying intensity of flow, most part of Teesta where rafting is done has been graded on a scale of 2 to 4. Grade-2 would have small roller coaster rapids but easy to negotiate, Grade-3 requires a trained guide & some technical ability, while Grade-4 would have some serious and large rapids, and should be attempted only by seasoned rafters.
The Rangeet river, on the other hand, has more turbulence compared to Teesta. Its multidimensional rapids can be very challenging at times. Both these rivers are fed by melting snow in the summer months and rainwater in the monsoon. They are perennial rivers.
Some important points to note 
  • One has to sign ‘Assumption of Risk and Release’ bond before undertaking the rafting trip.
  • Foreign tourists require carrying their passport which needs to be shown while signing the bond and also while crossing the Teesta Bridge.

  • If you have heart problems, epilepsy etc, it is advisable not to undertake the trip.
