Detailed Itinerary

Zanskar Rafting expedition is one of the top few, exotic and remote, river trips in the world. Our river trip starts from Remala, which would qualify as one of the highest rafting put in locations possible on the planet. The river journey flows through deep gorges and traverses across harsh inhospitable geography of Ladakh, in one of the remotest and sparsely inhabited regions of the world.
