Trishuli: Private Rafting Tour from Kathmandu or Pokhara

2. Trishuli: Private Rafting Tour from Kathmandu or Pokhara

This is the most popular and enchanting rafting river in Nepal which is easy to access from Kathmandu and Pokhara. During the monsoon, rafting in this river is one of the most exciting activities you can do in Nepal. This rafting trip offers you scenic villages, attractive gorges, exhilarating rapids and easier sections of river for swimming and relaxing. Though this river can be rafted most times of the year, during monsoon it transforms itself into a swollen torrent of raging whitewater. It creates exciting and heart-pounding adventures when the river is running high and wild. It is surely a trip not to be missed. Outside the monsoon, this river is also highly suited for rafting with families and is ideal for first-time rafters. Suggested Rafting Itinerary: Day 1: Drive to Charaudi for 45 minutes, then meet your raft crew and start rafting the river for about 4 hours. The leader of the raft will give a short briefing on safety procedures. You'll encounter several big and small rapids but the main interest is after Majhimtar which is just before the “upset rapid" and according to the Colorado River rating scale this rapid has been rated from 3 to 4. All tricky rapids bear Nepali names as well as common names, which you will be told by the rafting guide. Lunch will be served on the beach of the river just before going through the "upset rapids". Shortly after lunch, you will encounter another rapid known as “surprise”. It is indeed, for the current accelerates and the rapids increase in size and frequency. Overnight stay at hotel/lodge. Day 2: After breakfast, continue rafting for about 1 hour encountering Mugling & Simaltal rapids and pass the Marshyangdi River, which has flowed down, from the Manang valley. Then drive back to Kathmandu.
