Rafting on the Mo Chhu

Thursday, 16 November 2017

Despite the chilly water temperature (< 50°F) and the cool air temperatures (50 - 60°F), rafting on the Mo Chhu was a very pleasant experience.

On our way to our put-in site, we passed numerous rice fields with cattle eating the stubble (and adding their fertilizer in the process).
The put-in site is below a bridge about 6 km above Punakha Dzong.
We were in two rafts for this trip. Obviously, this is the raft we were not in!
A few snow-covered high peaks were visible from the river.

The take-out site is just below the Punakha Dzong and the confluence of the Mo Chhu (mother/female river) and the Pho Chhu (father/male river). They meet at the dzong to form the Punak Tsang Chhu ("wide river at Punakha").
