River rafting in Sikkim is one of the popular adventure activities that one can enjoy along with family members. The Himalayan wonderland Sikkim greets you with its two mighty rivers – Teesta and Rangit. Teesta River originates from Eastern Himalayan Trek and makes foaming white water, and perhaps some of the best rafting stretches of the world. The long stretch of Teesta River is excellent for rafting for beginners as well as seasoned rafters. The river has more whirling waters that offers a challenge to experienced rafters.
River Teesta eventually forms the boundary between Darjeeling district (West Bengal) and Sikkim. And also it is known as the life-line of Sikkim. Both river Teesta and Rangit meet at a place close to Teesta bazaar near the plains. This meeting point is known by the name of Triveni. Though river rafting can also be enjoyed at Triveni but the most popular place for rafting is on river Teesta is Melli.
