A Trip on the Beas

River Beas offers excellent Grade II and Grade III rapids ensuring a safe and yet thrilling experience. A rafting trip usually starts with the introduction to equipment, safety measures, do's and dont's and commands given by the guide.

After "boarding" the raft the adrenaline level of the participants usually sharply raises and desperate commands of "hard forward" and "backward" can be heard. The raft hits Grade II near the confluence of Parvati and Beas river, sending the boat in an uncontrollable state for some moments with waves lashing on the thrilled participants.

Safety

Minimum age is usually 14; good physical fitness is required; Life jackets and helmets are provided by the tour operator.

Insurance

Make sure that you are insured. Most organisations decline liability in case of any mishap or accident.
