River Rafting Risks and Arrangements for Safety
- The fun never ends at a River Rafting Expedition. But at the same time, it is good to be aware of the risks involved and also about safety. It is due to these common rafting risks that most commercial rafting points keep themselves closed during summer or monsoon.
- Most of the commercial rafting expeditions are safe. But knowing about the common risks, precautions, arrangement for preventive measures and risk management can give the tourist an added confidence.
- Drowning is one of the common risks. Wherever there is water, there is the risk of drowning. But, when you are going into the adventure with experts, there is nothing to worry.
- Hypothermia or effects of cold is another condition that may disturb at times. If you cannot bear too much cold, then going to a cold place with a cold river is probably not a good idea.
- Injuries from smashing into rocks, brushing against a coarse surface, banging against the hard surface. Although precautions are taken well and there is preparedness to deal with such risks, it is advisable that you stay alert at a personal level too.
Experts and staff pay close attention to the participants so that they are not injured or become a victim of an accident. Never go out alone. Always follow instructions from your guide, mentor or trainer.
