Goa Cruise Tour Packages


Andaman and Nicobar Island

Teesta River If you're really looking for some lifetime adventure, exploring the mother nature on your own and observing the true serene environment, then River Rafting in Sikkim is greeting you with its two mighty rivers - Teesta and Rangit. Originating from the eastern Himalayan region, the Teesta river offers some of the best rafting stretches of the world. On the other hand the Rangit river, a tributary of the river Teesta, has more swirling waters that offers a challenge to experienced rafters.

Referred as the 'lifeline of Sikkim', the Teesta river flows from the arctic Himalayas to the plain terrain of Bay of Bengal. In Sikkim the Teesta river originates from the mystic Cho Lhamu Lake, gushing, foaming and cutting centrally through the state. Graded on the International scale at Grade IV, the icy-cold waters of the river has a series of white water rapids with varying intensity and character.

From gentle rides through wonderful mountain views, from lush green vegetation to thrilling white water, the Teesta river offers everything which a rafting enthusiast expect during an enthralling rafting expedition. Moreover, while you raft on the Teesta river you get a good chance to see the riverbanks picturesquely dotted with thick forests, some patches of terraced cultivation and lovely small villages.
