My husband and I took the Trishuli River rafting tour as we’ve not done anything of this sort before and wanted to start off lightly. I had emailed the staff before booking to see which adventure they thought would suit us better as beginners. As we only had a day to spare, they suggested the rafting in Trishuli River as opposed to other river as that adventure was much longer and adventurous. We were taken by coach at Himalayan River Operator down to where the trip begins and given a very strict safety talk before heading down to the boat/raft. He was really nice and very interesting. Apparently he was born around same place so his knowledge of the area was very interesting to listen to. Trishuli River rafting adventure is suitable for pretty much anybody. Trishuli River had enough little ripples, splashes and bumps to keep it interesting but not too much that I feared being hurled out of the boat into the water, LOL! The guide told us that the monsoon started a little early this year (2013) and the current of river is more than expected at that time (end of May). Otherwise, he said monsoon generally started around mid June and rafting in Trishuli River in May would generally be just bit more than floating. The guide talked all about the fish, the birds, the river itself and pointed out various points of interest along the way. Even showed us some of the spots he and his mates used to leap from when they were younger! I think the trip itself lasted about two hours including travel and the safety talks. You can take a camera as they have a waterproof area to keep them in. Have a go, you’ll be glad you did! We’ve decided that the next time we visit Nepal, we’ll go up a level and a longer white water rafting adventure in Nepal.


Trishuli River – Rafting in Nepal

Rafting in Nepal

Trishuli River is the first choice of a rafting fan and is also suitable for family adventures. It’s 3+ and 4-graded river and can be run throughout the year.  The rafting put in and take out locations are in convenient distance from Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan National Park.  Rafting trip in Trishuli  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 as well as experienced rafters. Rafting trip down Trishuli River provides an excellent opportunity to observe the diversity of demography, landscapes, and cultural heritage and the flora and fauna. We can experience the thrills of white-water on the course of three days trip. The river trip is best done in two days and traveler with time constraint can also do a day trip.

During the monsoon, Trishuli River promises a more challenging ride, with powerful rapids and whirlpools. When the river is running high and wild, there are hardly any rafters around, and rafting on the Trishuli River is without a doubt the most exciting thing you can do in Nepal during monsoon and quite possibly one of the best two days big water rafting trips offered anywhere.
