Trishuli River Rafting

Trip Overview

The Trishuli River Rafting is located just a 3 to 3.5-hour drive west of Kathmandu, making it an excellent choice for short trips, or for those who are en route to Pokhara or Chitwan National Park. The return journey to Kathmandu is 5 hours, to Pokhara is approximately 4 hours, and to Chitwan is approximately 1 hour.

Moreover, the Trishuli River originates from the Gandaki River system and mixes with other rivers like the Bheri River, Marsyangdi River, and Seti River as it flows ahead. It is widely acknowledged for its most culturally stimulating and exciting river trips in the world. So, rafting along the challenging rapids of Trisuli River like Twin Rock, Ladies Delight, and Scout Upset can be an extremely mind-blowing experience.

On a multi-day trip, we set up a camp by the riverside. Once we arrive at the camping site, we can wander around the nearby locality or simply relax basking in the splendor of nature. Eventually, camping overnight by the riverside gives us time and opportunity to share our views, feelings, and experiences under an open sky of sparkling stars.

For a river trip exceeding more than a day, breakfast, dinner, and lunch will be served at a campsite including tea, coffee, and snacks.
