Rafting in Nepal
Rafting in Nepal is cosidered as one of the nest adventerous activity in Nepal.
Whatever your desire for an adventure trip, it is easy to find the perfect river in Nepal. With a wide range of difficulties from a gentle 1-day float down the Trishuli river to an exhilarating 10-day adventure through the rapids of the remote Sunkosi and Karnali, there is an experience for everyone waiting in Nepal’s famous white waters.
Nepal’s rivers change with the seasons. Each year, after the heavy monsoon rains the waters swell, changing the run of the rivers and the nature of the rapids. New rapids are created, others become more difficult and some simply impossible to navigate. It is important to remember that some of the whitewater action you are about to read about could have changed by the time you come to run the river.
We are constantly monitoring changes in the rivers and their rapids so that we can always ensure the safety of our clients and plan expeditions with precision
Nepal has a good reputation as one of the best destinations in the world for white water rafting. For the rafting purpose, rivers are graded on a scale of one to six depending on how wild they are. Four grades are considered to be quite challenging without being exceedingly dangerous to the novice rafter. Grade five requires some previous river experiences.
In Nepal, you will truly find some of the world’s most outstanding river rafting. We guarantee a fun and adventure packed trip guided by the well-experienced guides with the best equipment.
