Lhasa River (Kyi Chu)

Lhasa River Rafting (Kyi Chu)

Class:1 float trip
Approx. 20 km and 2-3 hours on the water

Lhasa River (Kyi Chu)The Lhasa River is the perfect run for those looking for a spectacular scenic trip and not too much action. It is an ideal way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and gain a different perspective of Lhasa and the Lhasa Valley. We use oar rafts, which means the guide does all the work and all you have to do is sit back, enjoy the view and take photos. You do not have to be acclimatized to undertake this trip, as there is very little physical exertion required!

Grade 5: A big step up from grade 4.  Very difficult and dangerous whitewater.  Definite possibility of injury if the raft overturns and/or someone swims the rapid.  For experts only.

Grade 6: The absolute extreme. By definition, un-runnable.  Definite risk of death!!

What about insurance?
For international clients, travel insurance is compulsory.  You may be asked for the name of your insurance company and your policy number when you make your reservation.
