Safety: The Charyn River is unlike other mountain rivers in the area due to its unpredictability; it can be still and peaceful one minute and then boistrous and frothing the next. For safety reasons, you will be rafting on rapids from class 1-3 (this includes the Saiga and Tau-Teke). All of our instructors are extremely safety conscious; please note that the drinking of alcoholic beverages is prohibited during rafting.
Insurance: Each participant is responsible for acquiring their own insurance.
Equipment: All rafts are inflatable rafts used for traversing rapids and are extremely safe as they are made of multi-layered PVC fabric. Paddles, life jackets, helmets, and wetsuits are all provided.
