What are the age and health requirements for rafting ?
While you should be at least 12 years old, there is no upper age limits for rafting, as long as you are in reasonably good health. At Himalaya Travels , we have certain 'kiddy' rafting stretches, which have mild rapids for children below 12 yrs. Children under 12 years who wish to do the adult raft trip, would need to get an OK from the Himalaya Travels personnel , who take the decision based on the height & weight ratio for safety.
What do I need to wear for rafting ?
You need wear only thermal underwear (or underwear) underneath the wetsuit. You will need a pair of strap up sandals or running shoes (No bare feet!). For the warmer months (March, April, October and November), shorts and T-.shirts along with the footwear is adequate.
Are adventure sports dangerous ?
Adventure sports are thrilling, exciting, wild and unbelievably fun. However, it goes without saying, there is inherent risk involved. That risk contributes to the excitement, and is one of the reasons people enjoying adventure sports so much. Our instructors are trained to minimize and manage risks, and, statistically, you're safer on an adventure holiday than in your car. For instance, one government report noted that the injury rate for white-water rafting is similar to that for bowling! The most common injury on most adventure holidays is sunburn.
