A lifetime expedition into the countryÕs north-east on one of the worldÕs longest river Brahmaputra. The rafting in the remote area is a breath taking experience.
Visit this offbeat destination Tuting where the real adventure begins upon the waves of one of the worldÕs great river, Brahmaputra. The main journey starts from the upper Brahmaputra (Siang) river in Tuting. The rafting ride covers about 180 kms of the river from Tuting to Pasighat, gurgling and negotiating the turbulence, fleeting through secluded remote gorges and unfathomable thick tropical rain forests. With nature at it best form, the ride apart from being frolicking fun is also an unforgettable experience.
