The Indus River, also known as the ‘Singhe Khababs’, which means out of lion’s mouth, rises from Tibet and flows through Ladakh to Pakistan. It travels from North West to South East direction to join Shayok and Suru and forms a miraculous beauty with historical richness. The best season to do rafting in Indus River is between June and August since, the water level increases at this period to give an exciting rafting experience. Rafting in Indus River is quieter and easier when compared to Zanskar. Indus River has grades from one to five rapids depending upon the speed of the river.
Zanskar River, also known as Tsarap flows through the Zanskar valley which is located at 12,000 feet above sea level. Zanskar River flows into the northern side of Indus River which originates from plateau of Sarchu at the border of Himachal Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir. It flows through the mountains of western Himalayas and then it goes past the capital at Padum. Further, it joins the Stod River to finally reach the Pensi La pass on the road from Kargil to Padum.
