There is no better way to see Nepal than on a river trip, which by its very nature is the essence of escapism. White Water Rafting in Nepal. At the foot of the Himalayan Mountains, Nepal is blessed with an amazing diversity of rivers.
The scenery of river Trishuli includes small gorges and a glimpse of the cable car leading to the famous Hindu Temple Manakamana. For the most of the year the rapids encountered on the Trisuli are straightforward, easily negotiated and well-spaced out. Trisuli River is an excellent river for those looking for a short trip, without the challenge of huge rapids, but with some really exciting one though, with beautiful scenery and a relatively peaceful environment. During the monsoon months the intensity of the rapids increases and attracts a radically different set of rafters. But there are sections for rafting during the monsoon for those who are looking for simple and exciting trip.
The put-in point for Trisuli River rafting is located just 3 to 3.5 hour drive west of Kathmandu, making it an excellent choice for short trips, or for those who are en route to Pokhara or Chitwan National Park. The return journey to Kathmandu is about 5 hours driving.
We take the safety of our clients very seriously. All our guides are licensed, with many years of experience on the rivers of Nepal and European countries. All are trained in CPR, First Aid and advanced river rescue techniques.
7:00 AM: pickup at customer hotel and transfer to tourist bus station then drive to Charaudi, the put-in point. After 3 hours drive, Charaudi is reached where a crowd of friendly local people eagerly wait to watch the proceedings.
10: 00 AM: The sight of foreigners all geared up for rafting fascinates them. The crew prepares the rafts, after which all head towards the river for safety talk and lessons on how to use paddles. A number of Class I to Class III rapids are encountered. Ratings are all given on the international rating scale. Two hours down the river is a beach with strange shaped boulders that resemble sculptures and this is the lunch spot.
12:00 PM: Outdoor lunch by the river is always an enchanting experience. It also gives everyone a break from paddling and time to take in the scenery. Paddling down after lunch, a large gorge is encountered, the Trishuli gorge, which is narrow and the walls very steep causing the river to accelerate through it. Naturally the rapids here are more ferocious and also more frequent.
15:00 PM: In the afternoon drive back to Kathmandu (included) or continue journey to Chitwan or Pokhara (local transportation will be advised by rafting guide).
Be careful if you plan to go rafting during rain season (Jul-Aug). The flow of water can be very strong and some previous experience would be advised.
