Trishuli River  

The Trisuli River starts up on the Tibetan plateau near the famous Langtang region. Legend has it that the god Shiva high up in the Himalaya at Gosainkund drove his trident into the ground and created three springs, the source of the river and hence the name Trishuli.

Rafting/Kayaking at Trishuli River

The river is big volume and famous in Nepal for its kayaking and rafting and there are a variety of different sections depending on the ability of the group. One day to five day trips you can journey downstream through rapids such as ‘Upset’, ‘Surprise’ and ‘Ladies Delight’ just to name a few.

There is also time to enjoy the scenery and wave to the villagers on the calmer sections. Big sandy beaches provide ideal spots to camp.

The volume is medium.  A fantastic river to warm up on with mostly class 2-3 plus bigger volume whitewater.

Karnali River

Rising from the famous holy Mt. Kailash in Tibet the Karnali River is Nepal’s Wild West River. It is the longest and largest river in Nepal. It carves through the Himalayan landscape into many beautiful gorges and canyons as it flows down into the forests of west Nepal. Travel through some of the most pristine jungle in Nepal filled with an abundance of wildlife. You may see tigers, deer, monkey and many species of birds. The river is very popular for fishing with many different species. The area is relatively unpopulated and has a real wilderness feel. Rapids such as ‘Rattle and Roll’, ‘Inversion’, ‘Juicer Shake’, ‘Freight Train’ and many more will provide plenty of excitement. Camping on sandy beaches and the remote feel of the Karnali River will give a true expedition experience.
