Marsyangdi offer one of the best whitewater runs in the world. Featuring four days of impressive non-stop grade 4-5 rapids and unparalleled mountain views, this jewel of a river is rated as a favorite by the few who have been privileged to paddle it. Following the Annapurna circuit we trek along the valley through charming Gurung villages and emerald fields. Children play excitedly along the trail as we pass, snow-called Himalayan giants surround us, and the champagne river churns and bubbles below.
Few rivers rival the Marsyangdi for exhilarating white water and sustained section of steep technical rafting test our teamwork. Thundering rapids twist between house-sized boulders, steep chutes plunge into deep blue-green pools. For most of the section from Bhote Odar down to Bimalnagar the river forms a gorge winding through the valley floor. As the crystal blue water twists and turns between the steep walls, fresh views unfold behind of the Manaslu and Annapurna Range.
