Full Day White Water Rafting Trip on the Trishuli River

Full Day White Water Rafting Trip on the Trishuli River

€45 per person

Experience the thrill of white-water rafting on Nepal’s Trishuli River during this day trip from Kathmandu. You’ll encounter well spaced-apart class I–III rapids, negotiated by a knowledgeable river guide who helps you paddle your raft downstream. Enjoy the serene surroundings and up the ante during monsoon season when the intensity of the rapids increases. You’ll spend roughly 2 hours on the Trishuli River, with a stop for a buffet lunch on the riverbank.


The put-in point for Trisuli River rafting is located just 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.

    Full Day White Water Rafting Trip on the Trishuli River
7:00 am
Pick-up from your hotel and start your journey towards Charaudi, the put-in point by private vehicle. After a 3-hour drive, Charaudi is reached where a crowd of friendly local people eagerly wait to watch the proceedings.
10:00 am
The sight of foreigners all geared up for rafting fascinates the locals. The crew prepares the rafts, after which everyone heads towards the river for a safety talk and lessons on how to use paddles. A number of Class I to Class III rapids are encountered. Ratings are all given on the international rating scale. Two hours down the river is a beach with strange shaped boulders that resemble sculptures and this is the lunch spot.
12:00 pm
Outdoor lunch by the river is always an enchanting experience. It also gives everyone a break from paddling and time to take in the scenery. Paddling down after lunch, a large gorge is encountered, the Trishuli gorge, which is narrow with steep walls, causing the river to accelerate through it. Naturally the rapids here are more ferocious and also more frequent.
15:00 pm
In the afternoon drive back to Kathmandu by private transportation.
