The Indus river (Singay Tsangspo) flows across the high altitude cold desert region of Ladakh in an almost straight line from the north west to the south east, passes through the Leh valley and flows into Pakistan and joins in Indian ocean.

The Indus, having originated hundreds of kilometers further east from near the Kailash mountain and the Mansarovar lake in Tibet, enters India and to the region of Skardu in Baltistan. While water levels are high, between the mid of June and late August, Demazong Travels  offers many fascinating rafting expeditions in different region in  Ladakh . The best time to raft this river is during June - September when daily trips are organized.

The Zanskar river expedition is a classic rafting holiday and is one of the best rivers for kayaking or rafting in India. It has it all, great white-water, amazing scenery and a cultural experience second to none. Also know as the Grand Canyon of Asia, it is located in the lunar-like landscape of western Ladakh. Ladakh is unique in India. With over 90% of the population practicing Buddhism it is more like Tibet than India in many ways. This expedition gives a great insight into local culture with visits to monasteries, palaces, villages and markets all included.
