While visiting Sikkim, Teesta river rafting is one of the most popular adventure sports you can experience. River Teesta, the largest river in Sikkim, is famous for its tributary Rangit, which offers some of the best routes for rafting. The vast stretch of the river covers a series of rapids, which can be anywhere from moderate to challenging. On the international scale, the Teesta river scores a Grade 4 for rafting. Grade 4 waters have powerful waves and difficult rapids, which is why you need to have very precise maneuvering skills. Though challenging, the Teesta river is considered safe for rafting. However, you need to have proper gear, and you must adhere to all the safety precautions.
You are allowed to bring your camera on the raft. However, taking photos and videos while rafting can prove to be challenging if not impossible. The river currents get stronger as you reach the rapids. Maneuvering the raft then becomes fairly difficult, and you need all your focus to do it right. If you are keen on capturing your rafting experience, you can get one of those cameras that can be attached to your headgear.
The best time to go for Teesta river rafting is from December to June. You should avoid the monsoon season that lasts from July to September. Heavy rainfall feeds the Teesta river and makes the rapids even stronger. The waters tend to be quite dangerous during this time, and rafting can lead to accidents.
Experienced guides and instructors are provided with each group to ensure the safety of the participants. Depending on the group, the instructors might speak in English, Hindi or any other regional language.
The age restriction for Teeta rafting may vary from one organizer to another. However, in general, children below the age of 5 and adults over the age of 65 are not allowed for such adventure sports. However, the restrictions tend to be flexible for adults, and older participants may be allowed based on their fitness level. As for weight, there are no strict rules for how much the participants should weigh for white water rafting.
At Thrillophilia, we ensure that emergency precautions are taken to offer you a safe rafting experience. However, in case of an unforeseen event or accident, primary care and first aid is provided right away.
