High al­ti­tude, high ad­ven­ture

Action Asia - - REAL DEALS -

AQUATERRA AD­VEN­TURES ARE SPE­CIAL­ISTS in ad­ven­tures in bar­ren Ladakh and Zan­skar – the land of white cop­per. Their upcoming itin­er­ary calls for a cou­ple of ac­cli­ma­ti­sa­tion days in Leh, up at 3,500m, be­fore switch­ing to the main event: the 79km Stod River. There you run t he spec­tac­u­lar Zan­skar gorge, where the walls rise hun­dreds of me­tres, be­fore your jour­ney cul­mi­nates with the Stod meet­ing the mighty In­dus. Rapids build from Class II to Class IV as the days pass, so first timers can get used to the al­ti­tude and hone their pad­dling as they float on. The 12-day ex­pe­di­tion costs US$1,252 per per­son and will run twice this sum­mer, on Au­gust 6-17 and Au­gust 18-29. For de­tails, visit www.aquaterra.in
