Navigate rapids on this exhilarating adventure
The Pho Chu river, which translates to ‘male’ or ‘father’ river, is fed by glaciers in the Lunana region. Its 16 km (9.9 mi) course is loaded with 15 different rapids, ranging from class 2 to 4, making it a favourite amongst thrill-seeking adventurers.
The Mo Chu river, which translates to ‘female’ or ‘mother’ river, originates from the northern hills of Laya and Lingzhi. Although calmer than its counterpart, the Mo Chu too offers an exciting rafting opportunity for those trying out the sport for the first time. Covering 10 km (6.2 mi) with 10 rapids graded class 2, this gentle journey is perfect for the whole family.
At the confluence between Pho and Mo Chu lies the Punakha Dzong, and thereafter the main river is known as the Punatsang Chu river. On your rafting journey you will witness breathtaking views of sub-tropical scenery, plus secluded stretches of serene sparkling water.
