Rafting In Nepal
Located right at the foot of the worlds highest mountains, Nepal could have been designed specifically for white water enthusiasts. Rafting in Nepal with a vast range of white water, there is something for everyone. With a choice of everything from a ½ day excursion to an epic 12 day expedition! This also has the added benefit of dramatically cutting down the need for bus travel as the rivers can transport you to and from a host of Nepal’s most popular destinations.
The Nepalese government has opened 16 rivers for commercial rafting. These are graded between 1 and 5 so there is something for almost anyone. Safety is our first priority, so we only use fully qualified, experienced rafting instructors and guides.

The Seti river is considered the best river for people to first experience the thrills of rafting or kayaking. For most of the year it is a gentle river, attracting families and bird watchers with its gentle rapids. It is classed from 2 to 3+ depending on the season. If you are more experienced and would like a tougher challenge why not try it out in monsoon season where the water levels are considerably higher.
This surprisingly warm river passes through beautiful scenery with large green hills and valleys all around.
Nature lovers will enjoy the abundance of different bird species you will see as you travel along the waters of the Seti.
For those wanting a family rafting trip or who are new to the activity the Seti is perfect. It offers the excitement of the rapids without the intensity of complex or challenging rapids.
A good river for beginner to intermediate level rafting, this is not to be missed. The river is class 3 to 4+ in high water so lots of fun to be had. As you get to grips with rafting, you will also get the chance to enjoy some fabulous views of the gorges and views along the Trishuli river. During monsoon season the river understandably provides a tougher challenge and the rapids increase in difficulty. Kayaking is also available if you prefer, with fully qualified experienced instructors for whichever activity you choose. You may also wish to combine your rafting trip with a visit to the near by Chitwan National Park, or the peaceful city of Pokhara.
Rafting Kayaking on Trishuli river can easily be combined with a visit to Chitwan National Park or Pokhara.
This beautiful 3 day trip along the Kali Gandaki is perfect for those people wanting a short to medium length rafting experience. You will pass through narrow gorges, thick jungle, and under tumbling waterfalls. You will see traditional Magar and Chetri villages and have the opportunity to view the huge Annapurna mountain range along with a wide variety of wildlife and religious sites along the river banks.
The New Bridge at Kusma is the put in point, situated 3 hours drive from Pokhara by private transport, provided by ourselves. The trip is around 72km and takes us 3 days. Our destination is the ‘dam’ and the return trip to Pokhara takes around 4 and a half hours.
This is not a trip for those wanting to have a chance to see the scenery while they are rafting. The Bhote Koshi River is the steepest river that is rafted in Nepal and this means it is an intense adrenaline rush from start to finish. There is a chance to stop on the way however to admire the views of the Himalaya from Dulikhel.
This is the ideal excursion for those wanting a short but adrenaline filled experience on what is regarded as one of the best short white water rafting trips in the world. It is better suited to those who has some previous rafting experience.
