The best place in Kashmir where you can indulge in River Rafting is in River Lidder near Pahalgam. The river hosts the two different stretches, which are quite suitable for river rafting. They are great for rafting but they cannot be called treacherous as the slopes are not that steep, and this attribute of the river is idle location for the tourist . One can go for a daylong excursion to the river. You can also take up white water canoeing in rivers like Sindh and Drass and Suru and in the many high altitude lakes like Gangabal, Kaunsarnag and Vishensar. Its worth the time and money that you will spend on it.
Rafting is done on the stretch of 2.5 km white water rafting Pahalgam ( lidder joy ride ) , 5 km White Water Rafting Pahalgam ( lidder long ride ) and 8 km White Water Rafting Pahalgam (extra long ride ) with grade II to III and IV rapids on Lidder River which flows from Pahalgam is located at Varganpal bridge , Varganpal bridge and langanbal Bridge, 12 km,12 km and 3 Km from Pahalgam and 72 km ,72 km and 88 km from Srinagar respectively.
The rivers run trough few of the most mesmerizing landscapes, giving you the opportunity to explore those wonders of nature, which are other wise unreachable through land routes. Few stretches are long enough that they take days to complete. And in between, you will stay in camps setup under the snow-capped mountains and hilltop monasteries, just by the sides of these roaring rivers .
