RiverIndia

Arunachal Pradesh, India
TEL: (877) 768-0150
After traversing the Tibetan Plateau, the Yarlung Tsangpo River becomes the mighty Siang of northern India. It is there, in the state of Arunachal Pradesh, that RiverIndia, a small rafting-tour operator, is building a sustainable-tourism industry with the hopes of protecting the 1,800-mile-long river, recently targeted for hydropower plants. It's a David versus Goliath story of a scrappy company fighting Indian big business. But it's also the tale of how an organization can train locals to embrace their natural resources, introduce travelers to an endangered landscape, and perhaps keep one of Asia's longest free-flowing waterways on course.
