Trisuli & Kali Gandaki

A short Nepal rafting trip. This suggested itinerary can readily be extended to include sightseeing and other activities too. This rafting holiday is a journey of two rivers with mini-expeditions on both the Trisuli and the wilderness experience of the Kali Gandaki. The Trisuli is Nepal's most popular rafting river due to the relatively short travel to put in and take out points from Kathmandu, reachable via the main highway. Big bouncy waves, hefty holes, and tricky chutes all go towards making an exhilarating ride to remember with a combination of Grade II+ and III+ rapids with some IV’s in the monsoon season….rapids such as ‘Snell’s Nose’, ‘Teen Devi’, ‘Ladies Delight’, ‘Upset’ and the aptly named ‘Surprise’ rapid. One night is spent at the permanent Big Fig Camp on the banks of the Trisuli before more paddling and then onto Pokhara, Nepal's premier lakeside resort. You then take to the waters of the Kali Gandaki River that originates from high up on the Tibetan Plateau and forms the worlds deepest gorge. A truly fantastic wilderness rafting experience. The rapids run thick and fast from day one just below the put-in point at Beni.  For most of the three days expedition there is little relent. Mostly Grade III rapids – but sometimes really exhilarating Grade IV and Grade IV+ - the Kali Gandaki carries you cavorting on through steep-walled gorges, under cascading the last morning…a grand finale of spectacular, photogenic, big-time whitewater.  And far more than just the river, the rewards include stunning upstream views of the Annapurna range, peaceful beach camps on the river bank, and the remote villages of at least five of Nepal’s main ethnic groups.On this section you'll camp 'wild' at suitable riverside locations. Two person tents are provided and your team will prepare some tasty meals for you in the evenings. Breakfast 'al fresco' on the balmy river banks too! Sleeping bags (3 season) will be required for the nights spent camping. We can arrange sleeping bag rental if required.
