RAFTING IN NEPAL

Trishuli (grade 2/4+) (1/5 days)
Rafting in Trishuli RiverThe Trishuli River is one of the most popular, if not the favorite of Nepal's raftable rivers. The Trishuli white water trip is exciting, fun and safe for all age groups. It can be arranged for a day to 3 days or more of rafting depending where we commence from and where we end the trip. It is recommended for intermediate Kayakers. Due to its proximity to Kathmandu and the easy road access, the trips on the Trishuli are mostly offered to tourists. The Trishuli river trip can be combined with trips to Pokhara or to Chitwan. For first time rafters it offers plenty of excitement.

Kali Gandaki (grade 4/5+) (5/8 days)
Rafting in Kaligandaki RiverIt is a beautiful unspoilt river with good white water, gorges, wildlife offering a feeling of remoteness. It is recommended for people looking for an exciting medium-length raft trip. We recommend combining this river with a trek before hand in the Annapurna region. It starts from Galeswore near Beni and one can raft down to Ramdighat in five days. The clients may then continue on to the confluence with the Trishuli at Devighat, adding another 130kms & four days. Kaligandaki is a sacred Hindu river where the rapids are technically challenging, winding through canyons & gorges.

Seti River (grade 2/3) (2/3 days)

It is a scenic, unspoilt and easy two day raft trip on a small volume, blue water and friendly river. The trip starts from Damauli and ends at Gaighat. It may continue on to Amaltarighat if participants wish to raft into the Chitwan National Park.

Upper Sunkoshi (Bhote Koshi) (grade 2/3) (1/2 days)
