White water Sports in Bhutan to match the daring of you...

If you love both water and adventure, Bhutan would be an enticing destination for you. Bhutan now has several very good raft guides and safety kayakars. Nick & Maria Williams from expert adventure co., Gerry Mofatt and Wink Jones who trained raft guides for equator expedition, a rafting company and two of their trainees Pema Wangdi and Bopin Chettri are a few eminent names associated with white water rafting in Bhutan.

Not all the rivers in Bhutan are accessible as they are very steep and powerfull, so the Kyaking and rafting are done in the branches of the main rivers. River Pho Chhu is famous among the tourists. The river has some class-3 rapids, namely Horse Play, Strainers Paradise and the wrathfull Buddha.
