What to Expect
What to expect rafting with Kunhar River Rafting Enterprise !
If you have never been whitewater rafting on the KRRE, get ready for an adventure of a life time.
Here’s what to expect!
Expect to get wet. With class 1-3+ rapids on the kunhar River Rafting Enterprise, rafting is no sport for the folks that melt when they get wet!
Expect to work. You do have a guide in all rafts but the guide only steers. You must paddle to make the raft move forward in through the rapids. You can think of the paddling crew as the motor on the boat! Don’t worry though, you can do it! Expect to work a little bit. Some rapids on the Upper Kunhar can’t be floated through and the crew has to paddle hard… But again, you can do it if you try!
Lastly, expect to have fun…. Lots of FUN! Rafting is so much fun with KRRE that we see repeat customers coming from many moons away to go rafting multiple time a year.
If this is your first time you have got to give it a shot! It’s great fun for everyone from ages 12 to 60
Whitewater Rafting Safety Tips
There are a few rafting Do’s & Don’ts you should always follow when taking yourwhitewater rafting trip…
Wear a Life Jacket
Make sure your life jacket is snug and buckled at all times
Listen to your river guides – they are there to keep you safe!
Notify your river guides of any medical conditions you may have
Wear proper shoes – no flip flops, slippers, or bare feet. Old Sneakers, water shoes, or sandals with an ankle strap work best
Help your fellow rafters back into your raft if they unintentionally fall into the water, even if you do not know them.
HAVE FUN & MAKE MEMORIES!
Do not stand up in moving current. If you unintentionally fall into the water, you want to float on your back with your toes pointed up, facing downstream.
Do not wear cotton if you are going rafting in the cold weather. For the cooler months wet-suits, neoprene, polypropylene and wool are all items you can wear to keep you warm and dry.
Do not bring/use alcohol or illegal substances while on your trip. It is dangerous and can bring harm to you, your guides, and fellow rafters.
Do not use your paddle as a splashing device
Avoid fallen debris and trees/branches in the river
NEVER GO RAFTING ALONE!
