RAFTING TIPS AND CAUTIONS
You are fully aware that rafting means cruising down the gushing waters of river in an inflatable rubber raft or kayak over roaring waves and swirling fast-moving water using paddles.
Most people are naturally a little bit apprehensive if they haven't been on white water before, but after the first rapids are "hooked" - as long as people are physically fit and not scared of water they can safely go on water of class 1 to class 3+.
GRADING (OR CLASSIFICATION OF RIVERS)
Class 1 Easy and small rapids
(RIVER PO CHU AND MO CHU SELECTED FOR OUR RAFTING TRIPS IN BHUTAN ARE CLASSED BETWEEN 1 and 3+)
BEST MONTH FOR RAFTING AND KAYAKING
Though Rafting in Bhutan can be enjoyed throughout the year, the best time given the weather condition and water temperature March through May and September through November are the comparatively better months.
Monsoon rain adds more water in June - August making rafting even more challenging and thrilling with more forceful rapids.
River gets cold yet bearable in December - February but Rafting at this part of the year has its own charm - river is relatively slow, offers more time to enjoy view along the river bank - frolicking kingfisher on look out for fishes, rare white belled heron scratching for food, flocks of birds that migrate from Siberia to spend winter here at pleasantly warm valley of Punakha.
