Trishuli River: The classic river (1 to 3 days) - For first time paddlers, a trip down the Trishuli is an experience not to be missed (class 3 to 4+ in high water). While you learn to handle the river’s well spaced, straightforward rapids, a panorama of stunning gorges drifts quietly past. During the monsoon, the river promises a more challenging ride, with powerful rapids and whirlpools. This trip can easily be combined with a visit to Chitwan National Park or Pokhara.
Bhote Koshi River: The harmony of Tibet and the Himalayas (2 days) - The Bhote Koshi is one of the best white water adventure in Nepal (class 4 to 5). Your journey to the starting point takes you through the mountains, past a vista of traditional Tibetan life. Once you’re on the river though, there is no time to stop and admire the scenery, as you and your fellow rafters negotiate some of the fastest and steepest rapids in Nepal. This true adventure can be rafted between October and December and February and April.
Kali Gandaki River: River of God (3 days) - Named after the much-revered Goddess Kali and descending from the deepest gorge in Asia, this fabulous river (class 3 to 4+) offers a mixture of astounding mountain views and pure adrenaline with a full immersion into the wilderness.
Along the way you will encounter culture at its simplest. If you’re lucky, traditional Magar and Chetri villagers will venture down to the riverbank to witness your journey through the remote mountain wilderness of Nepal.
