Nepal is one of the best places in the world for rafting, with numerous river adventures to take on from adrenaline-pumping mountain streams to vintage big-volume wilderness expeditions. Adding more fun is the sunny weather with the spacious white sandy beaches for camping, relaxing and just chilling.
The Trishuli River Rafting day trip is probably one of the best trips you can take on in Nepal. Rafting in Trishuli is quite popular as it has something for everyone, from the newbie to the expert. The river is ideal all year round, and it is just a few hours from Kathmandu, Chitwan and Pokhara. The river is sure to quench your thirst for white water rafting.
The river passes through scenic gorges and remarkable valleys. It does run parallel to the highway, however, the river is much lower than the highway and it often takes a route of its own,thus you will barely notice the road.
On this day trip, you will have plenty of time to take on some cliff jumps, swim, and play rafting games, or just chill in the sandy white beach drenched by the awesome ambiance of the beautiful surrounding.
Distance: 3 hrs from Kathmandu
Season/Grade: Oct-May/3 (4), Jun-Sep/4 (4+)
