The rapids of these streams and rivers provide the ultimate adventure and thrill in mountain water sports and lend themselves to canoeing, Kayaking and white water rafting.Rafting in northern Pakistan excites the imagination. Here the mountains are one of the most rugged and isolated place on earth. The Swat river, Gilgit river, Hunza river, Kunar river, Neelam river, Chitral river and Indus river. All provide excellent stretches for white water canoeing and kayaking. The Indus River from Jaglot northwards till its origin is deemed unfit for rafting (unless you want your grave in the Indus River bed). The Indus River is a black raging river upto Jaglot and no one can even swim it. The best options for rafting are from Aliabad (Hunza) till Gilgit on the Gilgit river or on the Gilgit River near Phander.
Equipment: Arrange the trip with your tour operator OR the hotel manager who would be more than happy to organise a rafting expedition for you. By the way, at least 4 people (usually) for rafting required. Rapids usually between level ii to level v passing through stunning scenery.
