River Rafting in Bea’s Rapid-The place was very good. The temperature is very nice. We did water rafting at Kullu which was the most exciting thing. It took around Rs. 750 per head for water rafting for 15 km. Beas is considered one of the strongest and fiercest rivers in the country and white water rafting on the Beas is an experience not to be missed by an adventurer! The participants however, must keep in mind the chilling temperature of the river water as it is fed by the melting snow of the Himalayas.
