    Rafting in Nepal

    by Tuna_ank Updated Apr 6, 2007

    If you want to make rafting in Nepal you can find many places for arranging it in Kathmandu. There are many rivers for this, you can choose your level. You can start form level 1,5-2. I had choosen this level in Tripoli river. I think T had paid 100 dollars for 2 days rafting. One night we stayed in tents and we sang songs together with other groups. Rafting was very good in that green area.

    Rafting on the Trisuli

    by into-thin-air Updated May 28, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You could hardly call the Trisuli river an Exciting Wild river, But it is Fun to raft and makes a Great way to split the journey either to Pokhara or Sauraha !! I organised my trip through Nirmal at Himalayan Magic adventure and Helga and I had a Smashing time !! two days with one night camping on the river, Nirmal's prices are Very reasonable -- why not go and check him out !!??

    2006 -- I am 100% Sure that the information in this tip is still as good now as when I wrote it in 2004 -- Happy Travels in Nepal -- Rob

    Lots of rivers

    by TracyG Updated Aug 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are quite a few rivers in Nepal that are good for rafting. The most popular is the Trisuli, this is mainly due to its proximity to both Kathmandu and Pokhara, but also because it is quite an easy river to raft, especially good for beginners.

    Equipment: All rafting operators will provide all of the necessary saftey equipment, all you will need is some quick drying clothes, sandals with straps and a cap/sunglasses.

    Water rafting in Trisuli River

    by Joy1912 Written Dec 9, 2004

    We did a grade-1 (easiest, 1/2 day) water rafting in Trisuli River. Not too exciting or difficult but the scenary is a must-see when you go to Nepal, especially for first-timers. The tranquil surroundings really have a calming effect on travellers. There are a few times when I was so engrossed in admiring the scenary that I did not pay attention to the guide's instruction to start "paddling"... keke

    Equipment: Perhaps windbreaker and water-proof shorts/pants. Everything else was provided by the guide. He taught us simple rafting techniques before we started, and he was the one who "manoeuvre" the boat when we reach the rapids.

    Rafting in Nepal

    In my opinion, Nepal is one of the best places in the world for rafting thanks to its mountain scenery and its most challenging rivers.
    Before you start, check the grade of difficulty based on an international scale, from Class 1 (easy) to Class 6 (most difficult).
    The best time for rafting is from the end of September to the beginning of December, as well as from March to May.
    Don't forget to choose a professional rafting company, safety is very important! Talk to someone that had the same experience with the company you choose...If possible, try to speak with the leading guide of the trip.

    Equipment: ...don't forget to wear a life jacket and a helmet!

    White water rafting

    White water rafting in the Himalayan fed rivers must be some experience, especially if you are an adventure lover. I did not try it because of my travel schedule and partly I have done it in other parts of the world. Nevertheless, I saw a lot of rafts on the Trisuli River and was told by my guide that the best time is after the monsoon season where the rivers have more water to raft.

    white water rafting amongst the mountains

    by eelaine Written May 9, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    white water rafting is one of the popular sports in nepal other than trekking.. with rivers ranging from grade 1 to grade 5, there's always something for anyone.. it's definitely a fun thing to do if you have a couple of days to spare..

    Equipment: most operators will include everything in their package.. so, there's really no need to buy any gear..

    White-water rafting

    by acunnane Updated Dec 10, 2002

    Given that there is so much water in Nepal, it would be rude not to partake of a little rafting! There are some awesome rapids; something for all skill levels. And of course there's the wonderful scenery to admire on the calmer bits.

    Equipment: Generally speaking, equipment should be provided by the activities company. I can heartily recommend Equator Expeditions (Kathmandu and Pokhara) for their splendidly-organised rafting expeditions.
