Reting Tsangpo

Reting Tsangpo Rafting

Class III / IV whitewater
100km and 4 days on the water

Reting TsangpoThis incredible river journey was first paddled by Wind Horse in spring 2005.  We access the Reting Tsangpo by its north fork, putting into a small alpine stream with incredible views of the Nyenchen Thanglha range near Lake Namtso.  The north fork enters the main river on day two and we paddle big water through incredible alpine juniper forests and past nomad camps.   Grand Canyon style rapids are interspersed with lazy flat sections and awesome surf waves for kayakers.  (A visit to Lake Namtso can be added on to this trip)

This is the quintessential Tibetan rafting experience.  Its wonderful mix of mountains, nomads, monasteries and superb whitewater is bound to make this new discovery a classic.

The put-in is at 4450m elevation so you MUST be acclimitised to undertake this trip.

Day 2: Full day rafting
Day 3: Full day rafting and exploring Reting Monastery
