SKARDU TO GILGIT RAFTING
150 kilometers Class VI

 
INTRODUCTION: River Indus is the lifeline of Pakistan; it originates from the heights of Tibet at a place called SINGHI KABBAB, which translates as "Mouth of the Lion". From its source the Lion River flows east between Himalayan Mountains passing through Laddakh and Baltistan it turns south near Gilgit along Karakuram ranges (Karakuram High Way). The Passage through gorges and valleys opens up in the plains of Punjab and Sind, after a journey of 2900 km the Indus River falls into Arabian Sea. The annual flow of Indus is twice that Nile and three times that of Tigris and Euphrates rivers combined.
 
In the south of Pakistan it is known as "DARY-A-SINDH" (River Sindh). The name of Indus River also appears in ancient literature, in Latin it is referred to as "SINDUS", Greek named this river as "SINTHOS" and in Sanskrit script it is mentioned as "SINDHU".
 
Indus River is one of the most historic rivers of the world and it also has a rice cultural background. In the historical perspective of this sub-continent Indus has a prominent role, civilization of Mohenjodaro flourished on its banks, Alexander conquering the world reached the formidable waters of Indus and Arabs entered India through this river.
 
Travelling in Indus River is like going back in time. The best way to get a real touch of this river and to observe its historical and social impact one has to navigate through this river. The journey on Indus not only exposes its majestic beauty but also unveils its rich cultural heritage. A boating expedition is planned this will be a unique opportunity to explore Indus.
 
DESCRIPTION: This will be a four days rafting and exploration adventure starting from SKARDU to the town of GILGIT. This journey will cover a distance of 150 Km on river Indus, in Rondu Gorge of undisturbed mountains. Like all of the Indus, this is huge water. By the end of May, when run by Andy Embick, it was already 100,000 cfs. Fast flowing primarily without distinct rapids but containing huge holes and explosion waves, it is in the summer months primarily a survival run. Midway through is one truly enormous rapid on an abrupt 180 degree left turn, which fortunately seakale on the extreme left. It was this “warm-up†which convinced the Lowell Thomas expedition not to go downstream into the Rondu Gorges. In October, the flow here is a more reasonable 20,000 cfs, but the water remains powerful and the one big rapid is still difficult.
 
We will start from Skardu town up to that point Indus already join by many small rivers Shyok River, Hushe River, Thalle River, Shigar River and during our journey from Skardu to Gilgit more Rivers like Basho River and White Water river coming from Kachura will join Indus.
 
All traveling and rafting will be during daytime and night stay will be in small hotels along the road or at protected camp sights. A logistic support vehicle air-conditions and a 4X4 Willi Jeep will move by the road and meet the expedition, team at the pre-selected places of night stay.
 
The winter season is the best time to travel in this part of Indus River, because the water level is low and the water discharge is reduced. These conditions are safe and comfortable for rafting down stream. The river is mostly flowing between mountains there are some very difficult section such as Rondu Gorge. During this journey you will see the ancient fort, bridges, historical sights, gold prospectors camp and old villages. Besides all these attractions river Indus during winter is a naturally protected sanctuary for migrating birds.
