Also, its vast mountain ranges serve as a source of supply for all of them. If we take a general analysis of rivers and streams, one can easily see that they are specifically designed for rafting. Unfortunately, it is one of the most neglected sports in Pakistan. Just a little effort and focus can make this country a popular rafting destination locally and globally. There are few rafting and Kayaking tours observed in Gilgit Baltistan. It is very few as compared to trekking and jeep safaris. The most challenging and easiest spots are covered in your tour. River Rafting and Kayaking in Pakistan is an emerging but interesting sport to do.

Sites of River Rafting and Kayaking in Pakistan

Kunhar River:

First on our list is the breathtaking Kunhar River, also known as the Nain Sukh. It is 166 km long and is located in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in northern Pakistan. The Kunhar River flows through the headwaters of the Indus. The river originates in Lake Lulusar, nearly 48 km upstream from the Naran Valley. The waters of the Dudipat and Saiful Muluk lakes further increase the flow of the stream. In addition, the cold water of Malka Parbat and other high peaks also enters this river.

The Kunhar River flows through the entire Kaghan Valley, Jalkhad, Naran Valley, Kaghan, Balakot, and Garhi Habibullah. The conversion of the Kunhar River to the Jhelum River took place outside of Muzaffarabad in Azad Jammu and the Kashmir region of Pakistan.

2nd on our list is the mesmerizing shyok River. It originally starts from the Ladakh region of Indian-occupied Kashmir and later enter Pakistan through Chourbat valley of Gilgit Baltistan. Just near Khaplu city two rivers connect with Shyok river, Siachen and Hushe Rivers connects at Haldi and then they will be merged at Surmo near Khaplu city. Then the Shyok river merged at Keris to the Mighty Indus River. The rafting and Kayaking starts from Hushe. Hushe is the last human settlement of Pakisan.

The river originates in the Tibetan Plateau in the vicinity of Lake Mansarovar. It crosses the Ladakh region of Jammu and Azad Kashmir to Gilgit-Baltistan.

Then flows south along the entire wide part of Pakistan to merge into the Sea Arabia near the port city of Karachi in Sindh. The total length of the Indus River is 3,180 km. So, it is considered the longest river in Pakistan. The Indus River is the main source of water for the Punjab and Sindh plains and forms the backbone of agriculture and food production in Pakistan.

The river Indus get’s squeezing after Skardu. It flows from Roundu. The Indus river get’s clear and crystal during November end to May 1st weeks. Rest of the months are full of glacier melted muddy water. This part of your journey is most challenging rather than previous ones.

Hunza River Rafting and Kayaking in Pakistan

Fourth on our list is the beautiful Hunza River. The location of this river makes it an attractive place to visit in the Northern regions. This river is created by the junction of the gorgeous Khunjerab and Kilik (nalas), which is fed mainly by glaciers from the mountain. It enters Gilgit and Naltar Rivers before finally falling into the Indus River. The glacier crosses the Karakoram highway near the Nagar and Hunza valleys. This thrilling Kayaking and Rafting crosses under Hussaini Suspension bridge and stops at Attabad lake. The journey starts again at Karimabad bridge towards Gilgit.

Fifth on our list is the beautiful Braldu River. It flows through Skardu District of Gilgit-Baltistan in Pakistan. It joins the Basha River and together forms the Shigar River, which is a tributary of the Indus River. In length, the Braldu is a 78 km long river, which originates in the Baltoro Glacier and flows 25 km to the west, where it receives its water from the Biafo Glacier. The Baltoro Glacier and the Biafo Glacier are among the largest glaciers outside the Polar Region. Baltoro Glacier creates eight thousand peaks like K2, which is the second-highest peak in the world.

Professional’s Comment

“Not many kayakers have explored the Pakistani rivers yet”
I feel this is misleading –
Kayakers have been exploring the rivers of Pakistan since the 1980’s.
Wick Walker’s guide book “Paddling the Frontier” was published in 1989.

The first trip to the Rhondu Gorges – filmed as “Taming the Lion” was in 1990 – I was there in April that year and returned with a large group of paddlers in 1991 to explore some of the other, easier rivers of the N.W.T – Whit Deshner has a hilarious chapter about this trip in his book “Travels with a Kayak”. Since then I think there has been on average one trip a year – so that probably adds up to a couple of hundred paddlers in the last thirty years?

Pakistan is not as popular as say Nepal, Chile, or Ecuador. However I would say that it’s a great destination for an experienced team of kayakers. Access is relatively easy as most of the rivers have jeep roads up them and have been explored for paddling. All the easier sections have been paddled, however I think that everyone would agree that there is still huge scope and many days of harder paddling and first descents.

In my humble opinion there has probably been too much focus on the Rhondu Gorges which of course offers stupendous, large volume, extreme paddling – however it is really not that pleasant a place – with clouds of dust and stinking black diesel fumes from the trucks on the main highway that follows the river! There are many, much pleasanter rivers to paddle in Pakistan. Most importantly, let me reiterate what others have said before – the locals have a reputation for being a bit wild but in truth they are incredibly friendly!
