Rafting is one of the best ways to explore the typical cross section of natural as well as cultural heritage of the country. There are numerous rivers in Nepal which offer excellent rafting or canoeing experience.
What to Expect
You will be picked up at your hotel and transferred to tourist bus station. After 3 hours drive, Charaudi is reached where a crowd of friendly local people eagerly wait to watch the proceedings.
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.
At noon, enjoy an outdoor lunch by the river. 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. In the afternoon drive back to Kathmandu by local bus.
