Trishuli River Rafting 1 – 3 days

Due to proximity to Kathmandu and easy road access, this is one of the most popular of Nepal’s raft able rivers. This river is easy and tremendous excitement and experience even for the first time rafters. Either trip to Pokhara or trip to Chitwan can be gone easily after rafting.

The scenery of river Trishuli includes small gorges and a glimpse of the cable car leading to the famous Hindu Temple Manakamana.

For the most of the year the rapids encountered on the Trisuli are straightforward, easily negotiated and well spaced out. Trisuli river is an excellent river for those looking for a short river trip, without the challenge of huge rapids, but with some really exciting rapids, with beautiful scenery and a relatively peaceful environment. During the monsoon months the intensity of the rapids increases and attracts a radically different set of rafters. But there are sections for rafting during the monsoon for those who are looking for simply exciting trip!
