Suggestions for China/Mongolia/Bhutan

Planning a multisport adventure trip with some friends. They don't kayak but are up for a multi-day guided raft trip (I'd hope to kayak it).

No idea how possible this is over there but any suggestions on commercially available guided rivers there?

Talk to Travis and Adam at Last Descents River Expeditions. Last Descents River Expeditions . They are presently based in Kunming, China in the Yunnan Province. They run the rivers in SW and W China. Great Bend of the Yangtze (while it lasts) and others. They're both from CO/AZ. Send me a PM and I can hook you up with them.

Yunnan is definitely the place to go in china and those guys have it wired. Lots of rivers and lots of authentic Tibetan cultures there. Mongolia only has mountains and WW in the NorthWest corner. Never been to Bhutan but it is something like $250/day just to be there. Sikkim, in India right next door to Bhutan is the same mountains and Tibetan culture as Bhutan with Kachenjunga Mountain and rivers, Sikkim is a good alternative to Nepal. Possibly the best place in the world for multi-sport adventures in untouched lands right now is Kyrgystan. Easy to get around and can be done cheap. Huge mountains everywhere and great rivers all over the place. There is a good 4-5 day Class 4 raft trip on the Naryn River there where you are surrounded by huge, accessible peaks on all sides. Also endless mountain bike touring on old soviet-era roads that don't see any traffic and wind through big empty valleys surrounded by huge mountains.
