River Rafting in Nepal - 1 Days
Whenever you desire for a thrilling adventure like rafting, it is easy to find the perfect river rafting in Nepal . With a wide range of difficulties from a gentle 1-day float down the Trishuli river, Seti river, to an exhilarating 10-day adventure through the rapids of the remote Tamur, Arun and Karnali, there is an experience for everyone waiting in Nepal’s famous white waters. Nepal’s rivers change with the seasons.
Each year, after the heavy monsoon rains the waters swell, changing the run of the rivers and the nature of the rapids. New rapids are created, others become more difficult and some simply impossible to navigate. It is important to remember that some of the white water action you are about to read about could have changed by the time you come to run the river. At MRR we are constantly monitoring changes in the rivers and their rapids, so that we can always ensure the safety of our clients and plan expeditions with precision.
Nepal has earned a reputation as one of the best destinations in the world for white water river rafting. For the rafting purpose, rivers are graded on a scale of one to six depending on how wild they are. Four grades are considered to be quite challenging without being exceedingly dangerous to the novice rafter. Grade five requires some previous river experiences.
Let us look below at the popular rafting destinations in Nepal before taking the look at the one-day rafting trip to Bhote Koshi river that we are offering In this package.
Bhotekoshi is one mountain river where you can raft mild to a challenging one. Located few hrs. from Kathmandu, this river is famous for a one day rafting experience or even accompanied by a night camping experience. While our itinerary addresses the one day adventure, we would also be pleased to organize a multi-day tour for more challenging adventure in this river upon the requests of clients.
The Trisuli is the most easily accessible river and most popular rafting river. Trips here are normally for one or two days.The river is easily reached from either Kathmandu or Pokhara. The trip can also be extended into the Royal Chitwan National Park. This river is also popular with intermediate kayakers.
Sun Koshi (River of Gold) has been classed as one of the ten
best rafting rivers in the world. Big rapids, warm water, no roads or towns.
Extraordinary scenery and great camping makes this a classic rafting journey.
The most common start point on the Sunkosi is Dolalghat, a three hour drive
east from Kathmandu. The Sun Kosi traverses the Mahabharat range and follows
one of the main geological fault lines of the Himalayas. This is also an
excellent trip for intermediate and advanced kayakers.
Kali Gandaki River
A Kali Gandaki river trip first requires either a flight or drive from Kathmandu to Baglung. A typical trip could begin at Modibeni, at the confluence of the Kali Gandaki and the Modikhola. This expedition has everything, exciting rapids, sandy beaches, cascading waterfalls, gorges, wildlife and a feeling of remoteness.
A beautiful unspoiled river with good white water, Kali Gandaki, is ideal for people wanting an exciting medium-length raft trip. It is also suitable for a self-sufficient kayak trip for intermediate and expert kayakers. We recommend combining this river expedition with a mountain trek beforehand. It’s also worth considering continuing down the lower Kali Gandaki (Ramdi-Narayanghat) to Chitwan National Park.
The Karnali, Nepal’s mightiest river, descends the Himalayas through a series of magnificent gorges. In traditional Nepalese fashion dozens of porters carry equipment for two days as we trek to one of Nepal’s most isolated and least explored areas. Exceptional rafting through tropical jungles, deserted beaches and small villages. The trip takes 11 to12 days of real wild-river adventure. Take-out point is Chisapani, close to the newly opened Royal Bardia National Park, where an optional Wildlife Safari through largely untouched wilderness is possible.
The short Seti River makes for an ideal introduction to rafting. This is a really pleasant and picturesque, one to three-day trip with no big rapids but plenty of friendly small ones. From the put-in point at Damauli (2-hour drive from Pokhara), the Seti merges into the Trisuli on the second day. This trip offers beautiful mountain views of Annapurna South, Fish-tail and Lamjung Himal.
The Marsyangdi rises on the northern slopes of the Annapurna Himal, flows east through an arid valley around Manang, and then swings south to join the Trisuli River at Mugling. The Marsyanndi is the most exciting class iv-v white water in Nepal. A white knuckle trip from the time your paddle hits the water till your feet touch dry land so not for the faint hearted. It is also considered to be one of the most outstanding class iv kayaking rivers in the world. Continuous exhilarating white water with magnificent mountain backdrops.

One Week in Nepal With Tour Guide
I recently spent one week in Nepal and Tour Guide Team Trek provided an extraordinary service with an itinerary suited to my needs and interests, including Kathmandu, Chitwan, and Pokhara, detailed cultural and historical explanations when visiting different sites in Kathmandu, and above all, a customer and people-oriented approach to all activities, meals, shopping, etc. Kumar Dahal was my tour guide and it was a pleasure for me to have him showing me his native Nepal. Kumar has excellent English speaking skills and he is willing to take the extra mile to help you have the best trip to this beautiful country. I recommend him and Nepal Tour Guide Team Trek wholeheartedly as the best agency to fulfill your expectations.
Memorable 4 Days With Tour Guide
My wife and I had the privilege to enjoy a 4 days long private tour with tourguideinnepal.com. Everything was spot on. We had a private driver and a private tour guide for the entire trip, both extremely polite. I can 100% recommend them to others also. I also found their pricing more than fair. Kumar runs the company, he was very helpful when we put together the custom itinerary. Our tour guide was Suvash, probably the most caring guy I’ve ever met. Thanks for the lifetime experience guys!
Two Nights Was Awesome
I only had two nights in Kathmandu and primarily wanted to do a chopper flight around Everest as well as see as much of Kathmandu as possible. Kumar was amazing and looked after me like family. I did a lot of research and Kumar booked the Chopper flight for me and answered any and all questions I had leading up to it. The Everest day was truly one of the best and awe inspiring days of my life. Kumar also took us to all of the must see sights in Kathmandu. He listened to our needs as well as read our body language for what we required. You must have a guide in places like Kathmandu to understand the history and not miss anything and you won’t regret using Kumar – he is the best!!

AMAZING NEPAL EXPERIENCE WITH Nepal Tour Guide Team
We had the privilege exploring KTM valley with Kumar. He has a way of showing you all facets of Nepal as nobody else will. Not only does he know his country like no other, he also has a special way of connecting you with his culture , people, customs and more like a real tour guide can only do. He is a humanitarian, a good spirit, with a great sense of humor and a heart of gold, someone who CARES about his country and people. You will love the way he guides you and shows you his country. Anything from local foods, to extensive history or just small talk about politics and social issues, Kumar is happy to discuss all. He showed us a side of Nepal, we would have never experienced with a larger bus group. He customized our program to our liking, the way we wanted it, patiently answered all of our questions always friendly , attentive and genuine. We can highly recommend Kumar as your private guide. I have traveled the world extensively (please see my other reviews on tripadvisor) and know the difference between ‘just a guide’ and a true tour director who LOVES his job and connecting with people from all walks of life. Kumar is great in what he does and his personality will make you like him the day you meet. We are still friends and should we return to Nepal, there is no doubt in our minds that we will see him again, not only as our guide but also to reunite with a great friend and human being.
Two Weeks In Nepal
We came to Nepal for just under two weeks in March 2017. My husband and I decided to bring my mom for her 60th birthday as it was her lifelong dream to visit Nepal. But weren’t sure what to do while we were there! Luckily, we found Nepal Tour Guide Team, and after a few emails to Kumar, he set up the whole trip for us. Our trip was incredible, and Kumar was wonderful. From Kathmandu to Chitwan, Pokhara and back, Kumar showed us the whole country, and his knowledge was second to none. He arranged all the hotels, the car and driver, the things we did, showed us great places to eat and most importantly, provided great friendship and conversation along the way! We laughed the whole trip and had a wonderful time. The mountains were beautiful, Chitwan was amazing, and the lakeside at Pokhara was definitely my mom’s favorite part. We’re still positive we had the best tour guide and the most skilled driver in the entire country. Kumar is an incredible person and we made a lifelong friend. Even after coming home, we continue to keep in touch, chatting and making video calls. We can’t wait to go back!
