Shimla:  Himachal Pradesh Saturday allowed river rafting in the remote Lahaul and Spiti district to promote adventure sports.

The government opened Lahaul and Spiti area for river rafting water sports, an official statement said here.

Earlier, rafting was allowed in the Beas river in Kullu district and in the Sutlej river in upper Shimla.
