Trishuli River Rafting
At the foot of the Himalayan Mountains, Nepal is blessed with an amazing diversity of rivers. Trishuli River Rafting is very nature is the essence of escapism. the scenery of river its includes small gorges and a glimpse of the cable car leading to the famous Hindu Temple Manakamana. For the most of the year the rapids encountered on the Trisuli are straight forward, easily negotiated and well-spaced out.
It is an excellent river for those looking for a short river trip, without the challenge of huge rapids, but with some really exciting rapids, with beautiful scenery and a relatively peaceful environment. During the monsoon months the intensity of the rapids increases and attracts a radically different set of rafters. But there are sections for rafting during the monsoon for those who are looking for simply exciting trip. It takes about 3 hours’ drive west of kathmandu, making it an excellent choice for short trips, or for those who are en route to Pokhara or Chitwan National Park or back to kathmandu.
6:30 AM pickup at customer hotel and transfer to tourist bus station then drive to Charaudi, which is the rafting starting point. It’s about 3 hours’ drive; Charaudi is reached where a crowd of friendly local people eagerly wait to watch the proceedings.
11: 00 AM the sight of foreigners all geared up for rafting fascinates them. The crew prepares the rafts, after which all head towards the river for safety talk and lessons on how to use paddles. A number of Classes I to Class III rapids are encountered. Ratings are all given on the international rating scale. Two hours down the river is a beach with strange shaped boulders that resemble sculptures and this is the lunch spot.
13:00 PM Outdoor lunch by the river is always an enchanting experience. It also gives everyone a break from paddling and time to take in the scenery. Paddling down after lunch, a large gorge is encountered, the Trishuli gorge, which is narrow and the walls very steep causing the river to accelerate through it. Naturally the rapids here are more ferocious and also more frequent.
15:30 PM In the afternoon drive back to Kathmandu (included) or continue journey to Chitwan or Pokhara (Extra Cost)
