Rafting is floating down mountain rivers on man-made rowing channels on inflatable boats (rafts).

Rafting is an activity known to man since time immemorial. There is evidence that hundreds of centuries BC ancient peoples traveled on rivers in canoes. With the development of civilization along the rivers rafting wood, in a variety of floating devices crossed the mountain waters of the gold prospectors and geologists.

In extreme rafting on mountain rivers, the most notable mark left an Englishman M. Jones, who laid the foundation of modern concepts of rafting in a kayak. He organized the first passes in kayaks on the Blue Nile in Africa, the Orinoco River in South America and the Dudh Kosi River in Nepal.

The rafts themselves, however, appeared during the Vietnam War, where these watercraft were used to deliver goods along the waterways to the bases of the U.S. army.
