  • Lush rainforests surround the river
  • Technical River
  • Tribal Area
  • 160km of Rafting
Enter the last frontier of the North Eastern part of India. The Kameng River in Arunachal Pradesh is a tributary of the Brahmaputra. It has been accessible for river rafting and kayaking only recently and an expedition on this river will take you through lush rainforests that surround some of the finest white water in the country and world. The North Eastern part of India receives a large amount of water and this reflects in the amazing whitewater the rivers offer here. The experience of the good rapids on the river is only surpassed by the verdant beauty that surrounds it. One would also get the opportunity to see the rich tribal culture, exotic flora and fauna. This self contained trip allows you to take home snapshots and memories of a land so special and hidden from the rest of the world.

The expedition on the river begins with a few easy rapids, drifting through the thick forest we get to encounter some good grade 4 rapids named ‘Maxed Out’, ’Pakke Sock Sucker’ ,’Gruesome Geyser’ to name a few. Set up camp late afternoon on sandy beach after a good exciting day on the river. 
Day 6
Paddle through a gorge which provides some stunning views. Paddle bouncy grade 3 rapids which are the highlight of the day as a lot of small streams & rivers come in adding volume. As we leave the first gorge, we float through the Seppa town to pitch camp on a sandy river beach. Spectacular views of streams falling into the Kameng surround us and we go to bed dreaming of the river and what the next day holds.

The day starts with an easy float section as we go away from the villages into the remote gorge of the Kameng, where there are good grade 3-4 rapids before we reach camp at the rivers confluence.

Layover day. One can choose to wake up late, laze around the camp or take a nature walk & explore the remote gorge around, sunbathe, bird watch, try a hand at fishing or just lay on the beach & read a book.

This is a great section of the Kameng River as the Bichom River joins it, increasing volume adding punch to the rapids. We encounter 23 grade3 to 4 plus rapids.
