Kongpo River Rafting

The Kongpo and Draksum Chu are world-class rivers with exciting rapids and stunning mountain scenery. The Kongpo region is quite different from the rest of Tibet with forested mountains and emerald green rivers. On the Kongpo Chu, we run 77 km of very exciting rapids. The highlight of the trip is the Gyazhing Gorge, which has 3km of exhilarating class III and IV rapids. On the Draksum Chu we run approx 30km of whitewater. You definitely have to be a confident swimmer to challenge this run and you must be fit and fairly well acclimatized. This is an exciting run and you will be expected to paddle hard particularly on day two.

We regularly run 6 different rivers in the Central Tibetan area, ranging from relaxing float trips to challenging Class IV white water. We offer short trips based out of Lhasa and multi-day expeditions to wild rivers in remote regions of Tibet . We can combine a rafting adventure with any trekking or cultural tour from our general catalogue. Simply let us know what kind of adventure you have in mind and we will prepare an itinerary to suit your needs.

Safety and Background
Adventure Silk Road Inc. has established itself as one of the most comprehensive adventure tourism company in Tibet . Our reputation is based on honesty, reliability and a high level of service and safety. All our international guides are trained in wilderness first aid and river rescue. Expert safety kayakers are used on every run except our float trip on the Lhasa river (where there is no whitewater!) They have extensive experience running challenging whitewater expeditions in the Himalaya and elsewhere. Our international guides have years of experience guiding, instructing, and managing rafting and other outdoor adventure operations around the world. Our rafting guides and safety kayakers come from several years experience running rivers in Nepal.

All clients are provided with international standard safety equipment including a full wetsuit, helmet and buoyancy vest. We use state of the art rafts, kayaks and equipment. When we design your itinerary we consider seasonal weather patterns, water levels and temperatures, altitude, accessibility, as well as surrounding scenery and cultural sites to ensure that you have the best possible experience on the water. Travel in Tibet can be challenging; however, the moment you arrive, Adventure Silk Road Inc. will make every effort to ensure your journey in Tibet will be a fascinating, fun and rewarding experience.
