Trishuli River: The classic river (1 to 3 days)

After a short drive to the starting point, this river offers an exciting experience for first time paddlers (class 2 to 3+). The Trisuli can easily be combined with a trip to Pokhara or Chitwan. During the monsoon, though, the river swells with powerful rapids and whirlpools. A great warm up for those that wish to get a feel for what Nepali water is all about.

Bhote Koshi River: The harmony of Tibet and the Himalayas (2 days)

Probably the best short white water adventure in the world. While traveling through the mountains to the starting point, one can get interesting glimpses of Tibetan life; but once on the river, there is no time to stop paddling, as the raft/kayak needs to maneuver its way down some of the fastest and steepest rapids of Nepal. This true adventure (class 3 to 5) can be rafted around October/December, or from February to April.
