White Water Rafting, UttaranchalRafting in Uttaranchal- Overview
One of the most exciting and an extreme sport - white-water rafting captures and controls the turbulence of the fast flowing streams. Rafting typically means navigating through the channels of flowing water. Streams and rivers happen to be ideal places for such exercises. River rafting is classified into six classes - Class I to Class VI. Class I rafting involves navigation through fast flowing streams but with lesser turbulence, ripples and waves.

White-waters refer to the fast flowing streams that originate from the mountains.
