About a week ago, my family was taking a one week tour around Bhutan. While we were in Punakha, we went white water rafting. It was very fun, and we all enjoyed it.
It was a nice, sunny day in Punakha when we went white water rafting. Before getting into the raft, we put on our gear, met our crew, and went through some rules about how to stay safe while rafting. We all hopped into the raft and then we were off.
Our ride was super fun! The rapids pushed us along the river, and we were actually going pretty fast! Sometimes, we got to a really crazy area, and that was always my favorite part. We would hit these giant rapids, and get a huge splash! The water was very cold, so when we got a huge splash, we would be super cold!
Along the way, we came across the Punakha Dzong. We had visited it the day before, but it was still pretty cool to go rafting past it. The Dzong was huge, and it was also very cool looking and had amazing woodwork!
We rafted for about 2 hours. I was starting to get a little bored of it at the end, probably because there weren’t many rapids any more.
In conclusion, we all had a great time rafting in Punakha, and maybe next time, we could go on some more crazy rapids!
