Adventure Sports / White Water Rafting in Pakistan


hatp Description

Pakistan offers a number of wonderful opportunities for white water rafting. The high rise mountain peaks on its northern side border Pakistan and these snow capped mountains and glaciers are what give birth to gurgling rivers that tumble down from the Karakoram, the Himalayas and the Hindukush to plains of Pakistan before meeting at the Arabian Sea.

These rivers in the north of Pakistan offer wonderful opportunity for white water sports. Some of the rivers that make great white water sports spots in Pakistan are the Chitral, Indus, Gilgit, Swat, Hunza, Kunar and the Neelam river. You can enjoy river rafting, canoeing and kayaking in these rivers.

The Indus, Ravi and Chenab in northern Pakistan provide wonderful opportunities for water sports. Some of the places that you can visit for water sports in Pakistan are from Naran to Kaghan on the Kunhar; from Dir to Batkhela on the Pankora; from Jaglot to Thakot on the Indus and from Aliabad to Gilgit on Hunza River.

So if a streak with adventure is what you are looking forward on your holidays, Pakistan is a wonderful place to tour. Come and get wet on the rivers of Pakistan.

In brief, the rivers in Pakistan exude every bit of their untamed qualities and challenge you to overpower them. Also, they put to test your strength, both physical and mental, and it is in this that the whole excitement of rafting lies.
