Arun River (9 days). This trip begins with 3 day trek through remote villages of Arun valley. Camping out in lush forests with views of the snowcapped Himalayan peaks. On the river, the powerful current drives your raft or kayak through 4 days of great white water action; at night you relax on fantastic beaches in dramatic valleys of Arun. In our opinion, the combination of trekking, spectacular scenery, great rapids and remote location make the Arun itself best river running.
Sun koshi River (7 - 9 days). This river is famous in rafting circles, and with good reason. This is one of the ten most exciting white water rafting in the world, roaring past remote villages and green fertile mountains covered with forests and rice terraces, where local inhabitants can be seen in their daily rural activities. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience… particularly during high waters, when the rapids can swell to massive sizes, sometimes making the rafts completely disappear from sight!
Karnali River (10 days). A one-day trek from the nearest road leads you to Karnali, Nepal’s largest and longest river. On the river, a series of challenging class IV to V rapids takes you through narrow canyons and dense forest full of diverse flora and fauna, finally leaving you close to Bardia National Park, where you can combine your rafting adventure with a safari trip and maybe spot some of the park’s one-horned rhinos and elusive tigers.
Tamur River (11 days). An expedition on the Tamur River begins with a breathtaking 4-day trek through remote Eastern Nepal. This short trek offer an amazing view of Mt. Makalu, Kanchanjanga, passing through rhododendron forest and an ancient villages of Rai majority. Once on the river, you begin a 135 km descent through more than 100 of the most exciting (class 4 to 5) rapids the river has to offer. As with the Arun, the Tamur offers you the opportunity to explore a beautiful, but rarely seen part of Nepal by foot and raft or kayak
Safari Option. If you don't want to drive back the long 500 km to Kathmandu all at once, you can stop along the way and have a rest and enjoy the wildlife activities at Royal Chitwan National Park. This world-famous wildlife preserve offers elephant-back safaris, jungle walks, bird watching, canoing trips and local cultural activities as well. We accommodate you in the best-located wildlife lodges in the park.
