Rafting In Nepal

Rafting in Nepal is undoubtedly the best way to explore spectacular Himalayan Rivers, mountain scenery and a rich cultural heritage of rural Nepal. No other country has such a choice of trips on wild rivers, sub tropical climate and huge white sand beaches, ideal for camping. Mountain scenery that has drawn thousands of trekkers and climbers for many years, also feeds some of the most challenging and beautiful rivers, making Nepal an obvious river runner’s destination. If you have never been on a river journey in Nepal before, you’re in for an amazing experience. There is no better way to see Nepal than on a river trip, which by its very nature is the essence of escapism. Be warned, once you start on this journey, it may be hard to quit.

Rivers are graded for difficulty on an international scale from class 1 to 6, with class 1 defined as easy flowing water with few obstacles, and class 6 being considered nearly impossible to negotiate and a hazard to life. A reasonably fit person who is not afraid of water can safely go rafting on rivers with grading from class 1 to 3. For the more difficult and exciting class 4 to 5 rivers, people should be extremely confident in water and preferably have prior rafting experience.

When selecting your rafting trip, you should know what to expect from it. River journeys range from a short 2 day paddle to 12 days expeditions. Each one is incredibly unique in its own way and offers an enjoyable experience, regardless of the length of the river trip.

Sun Koshi - The river of gold

Rafting in sunkoshiThis is the longest trip in the river miles offered in Nepal. From the put –in point at Dolalghat ( two hours out of Kathmandu), the warm waters of the Sun kosi surge for 270 km, before meeting up with another road. It is quite an experience to begin a river trip, barley 60 km from the Tibetan border and end a week later at the hot, dusty northern Indians plains. An incredible combination of powerful whitewater, stunning scenery and quite, reflective evenings, makes this one of the world’s ten best classic river adventures during high flow.
