Rafting in Nepal

 

White water rafting means cruising down a rushing river in an inflatable rubber raft or white water kayak over crashing waves and swirling rapids for the excitement of a lifetime. Nepal has earned a reputation as one of the best destinations in the world for white water rafting.

 

Nepal’s thundering waters, coming from the glaciers of the mighty Himalaya, provide unmatched thrills for rafting and immersing oneself in the landscape. A rafting trip is bound to be the highest of your stay in the country.

 

Rivers are graded on a scale of one to six, with being a swimming pool and 6 a one-way ticket to your maker. 4 is considered to be quite challenging without being exceedingly dangerous to the novice rafter.5 requires some precious river experience. Here are some of the popular rafting trips.

rafting in trishuli

Trishuli River (III) : It is one of the most popular, if not favorite, of Nepal’s raftable rivers. Due to its proximity to Kathmandu and the easy road access which accompanies it, our company offer trips on the Trishuli. For the first time rafters it gives you plenty of excitement. Many river runners choose to incorporate a ride down the Trishuli with either a trip to Pokhara or to the Royal Chitwan National Park.


rafting Sunkoshi River

Sunkoshi River (IV-V) : It is Nepal’s second rafting river with a put-in only three hours from Kathmandu, it is more easily accessible than the Karnali river. Nevertheless it offers an incredible stretch of exhilarating white water. The run is 270 km and requires 8-10 days to complete with road access only at the beginning and end. On the third day rapids reach the upper 4 classifications and the remainder of the trip is consistently intense-the white water stays white until the very end.


rafting in Karnali River

Karnali River (IV-V) : In the far west is the longest and largest river in Nepal. To arrive at its banks requires a two-day trek from Surkhet in the Terai. The next 90 km are spent flying through spectacular landscapes and narrow gorges and down some of the most challenging rapids in the world. For the remaining 90 km, the scenery and wildlife are the main attractions, as is the abundance of fish. During most of this trip, the wilderness is uninterrupted by human habitations.


rafting in Arun River

Arun River : The easiest way to get to this river is by catching a plane to the put in point at Tumlingtar. Alternatively you can drive for 1 day and then trek for three days. The Arun provides some of the most challenging rafting in Nepal, and although the difficult access makes only three days on the river possible, the remote location and spectacular mountain views make this real wilderness experience.

 


rafting in Seti River

Seti River : The short Seti River makes for an ideal two days introduction to rafting. From the put in point at Damauli, the Seti merges into the Trisuli on the second day. This trip offers beautiful mountain views of the Annapurna South, Fishtail and Lamjung Himal.

 


rafting in Bhotekoshi River

Bhotekoshi River (IV-V) : It is a two-day run of pure adrenaline located only three hours from Kathmandu. Twenty-six km of continuous white water batters rafters as they shoot through a veritable maze of canyons and boulders. Little more than a swimsuit is needed for this one.

 


rafting in Marshyangdi River

Marshyangdi River (IV-V) : The raging Marshyangdi run is four days of uninterrupted white water. Flowing through the gorges of the Annapurnas, it runs sandwiched between 52 km of boiling foam and towering peaks. Trips on the Marshyangdi start from Pokhara.

 


rafting in Kali Gandaki River

Kali Gandaki River (IV-VI) : The river winds through remote canyons and deep gorges for five days of intense rapids among gorgeous wilderness and mountain views. The river flows 120 km and its challenges are continuous. Trips on the Kali Gandaki offer an exciting alternative to the Trishuli.
