Nepal boasts some of the best whitewater in the world, thanks to its mountainous steep terrain. What really makes a rafting trip worthwhile are the magnificent vistas of traditional houses on hillsides, terraced paddy fields, deep gorges, valleys and flat plains that you encounter on the way. While exploring the rivers, you can either go paddle rafting as a team or go kayaking and canoeing alone.
The rapids are graded on a scale of one to six depending on their ferocity. Trips range from one or two days to two-week expeditions and often combine some trekking to get to the remote rivers in the first place. Rafting trips are usually planned in the dry seasons from October through mid-December and March through early May.
Trekking Planner organizes rafting, Kayaking, and Canoeing in a different river and different time of the year. The Trishuli River (grade 3+) is the most popular among raft able rivers.
