Drigung Chu River
Overview

The Drigung Chu is situated in an exquisite alpine valley about 3 hours from Lhasa . On the first day we drive to Terdom nunnery and soak in the sublime hotsprings. We also visit Drigung Til Monastery. On the second day we begin rafting and for two days we paddle the stunningly beautiful Drigung Chu. Continuous class III rapids are interspersed with incredible granite gorges and challenging class IV rapids. To undertake this trip you should be able to swim and you must be fit and fairly well acclimatized. This run is quite technical so you will be expected to paddle often. This trip is for those looking for an exciting river adventure in a unique environment. Our guides feel this run is the most beautiful river in Tibet !

Trips
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.
