The Tourist Offices at Kargil and Leh have climbing and trekking gear available on hire. The charges are modest; concessional rates are charged if rented on a monthly basis. Porters and mules are also available. The J & K Tourism department maintains trekking equipment hire shops in its Srinagar, Leh and Kargil Offices.
A range of rafting options is available on the Indus and its major tributaries. The best stretch for professionally guided runs in white water is on the Indus between Spituk and Saspol. Beyond Saspol, the river becomes difficult and running it requires technically skilled participants and careful organisation.
