Rafting on the Trishuli River is an excellent opportunity to observe the diversity of demography, landscapes and cultural heritage, as well as the flora and fauna. You can experience the thrills of white water rafting on the course of a three-day trip. This can be adjusted as per your interest and time.
The Trishuli River is most easily accessible from the Kathmandu, Pokhara and Royal Chitwan National Park. A trip on this river can be made for a varied duration, depending upon the availability of time and interest. Scenic valleys and impressive gorges, exhilarating rapids and easier sections as well as the right amount of time all make it the perfect trip for first-time or experienced rafters.
During the monsoon, the Trishuli River promises a more challenging ride, with powerful rapids and whirlpools. When the river is running high and wild, there are few rafters around and rafting is without a doubt the most exciting thing you can do in Nepal during monsoon and quite possibly one of the best big water rafting trips offered anywhere. There are numerous exciting rapids such as Snail’s Nose, Teendevi, Malekhu Rapid, Monkey Rapid, Upset, Surprise, Monsoon, Cotton Pony, Ladies Delight, S-Bend, Highway, Monsoon and Pinball Rapid. This makes your fun more challenging during high flows with a good mixture of continuous rapids and pleasant calm water.
Kuringhat is a small and picturesque village and an ending spot from where you can drive to Kathmandu or Royal Chitwan National Park, or to Pokhara to continue your adventure in the Himalayas.
On day one, we will travel from Kathmandu for a three to four hour drive to rafting starting point, Charaudi Red House. This exciting rafting trip hits a few Class 2 or 3 rapids called Ladies Delight. After a rest stop, venture the white water to hit Class 2 to 3 rapids called Upset and Surprise. We will stop at River Fun Beach Resort for a buffet hot lunch. Enjoy free time as you can swim at our private swimming pool, take a kayaking course or visit a local farmhouse. About 6:30 p.m., we will make a campfire on our private riverbank with some light snacks. In this relaxing period, we can sing songs, dance at the beach or just unwind. Later, we will serve dinner and have an overnight stay in a deluxe safari tent or regular tent.
Around 7:30 a.m., enjoy tea and breakfast. One of our guides will take you on a village tour where you will learn about the people and their lifestyle. You will continue rafting for the next few hours. Later, you will return to Kathmandu, Pokhara or Chitwan.
