Paro Chhu's clean and clear waters are an ideal choice for adventure sports like kayaking and rafting. There are travel companies which organise these activities in the river. Proper security equipment such as lifeboat, belt etc, are provided to you for your safety.
Paro’s white waters are a popular rafting spot. The Paro Chhu constitutes these white waters. Chhu means ‘river’ in Bhutanese.
The Paro River begins from the South of Mount Jomolhari. It flows through magnanimous mountains, quaint grasslands and canyons. The river then enters the Paro Valley and flows through the Paro Town. Downstream of this river is where the white water rafting fun begins.
The river is at a stretch of 7 kilometres with a few boulder rapids and small slopes that's good for beginners/intermediate kayakers too.Operators: Northwest Rafting Company Northwest Rafting Company (541) 450-9855 is an award-winning group of professional, well-trained guides that lead people down the most beautiful rivers in the world.Total length of rapids: 4.9 milesGradient: 49 fpmRafting difficulty: III+ (on V)Best time to visit and raft: Post Summer/Spring months (March to April) and Pre-Winter/Autumn months (November to December)Flow strength: Low to medium flowPut-in or entrance zone: Downstream of ParoTake-out or exit zone: ChhuzomCost: Approximately Nu 4,040 per person
