Rafting in Nepal

This is an action-packed recreational activity that can be enjoyed by individuals with different skill levels. Usually done on ‘white water’, rough river water which is often full of rapids and other obstacles makes for a ride that is far from smooth.


Rafting Trip Highlights

  • Raft on some of the most famous destination in Nepal
  • Witness majestic hills accompanying the Himalaya-fed rivers
  • Opportunity to spend a night at the river beaches


With the Himalayas being the major source of glaciers and rivers, rivers flow above rocky surfaces snaking over the uneven lands. The perennial rivers and their tributaries are excellent destinations for whitewater rafting. As such, there are many destinations that are a day’s ride away from major cities.

Rafting risk factors graded into numerical classes in order of difficulty. And Nepal houses rivers that fall in almost every category of these grades. Rafting difficulty can vary in severity according to the part of the river it did in. Some sections or some rivers as a whole are very rough while others provide a more pleasant experience at the expense of some added thrill. Some of the most famous rafting destinations in Nepal are Trishuli, Bhote Koshi, Karnali, and Rapti.

At Nepal Treks, we aim to create fascinating travel journeys in Nepal. We are driven to provide trip which helps the travelers to fulfill their thirst for adventure. As such, Rafting in Nepal allows travelers to enjoy their travel with a variety of options.


Trishuli Rafting

The Trishuli River lies between the cities of Kathmandu and Pokhara. Situated almost 83 kilometers west of Kathmandu, this river is one of the best and famous rafting destinations in Nepal. The river graded as a class 2-3 river which generally means it more welcoming to newcomers and a relatively smooth journey with tough rapids scattered sparsely in the river.

Thus, Trishuli is a good mix of fun and thrills. While rafting you may notice the several small settlements nearby who rely on the Trishuli for irrigation. Your rafting experience will be tentatively 3-4 hours during the afternoon. Trishuli destination in its own right but can also be done as an appetizing trip or a closing to any other trips you have in Nepal.


Bhotekoshi Rafting

Bhotekoshi River is one of the roughest rafting in Nepal. The 3-5 class rapids in this river will spike your adrenaline and keep it from dropping. There are powerful and prolonged sections of rapids and dips which demand proper paddling. It is not as welcoming for first-time rafters but is a gem of a river for ones with a little more experience under their belt. This trip located 3 hours northeast of Kathmandu and is a great day trip.  Also possible to spend a night on the river camp. Along with the thrilling waves, the rafting adventure also allows you to enjoy the surrounding landscapes.
