Rafting

Nepal has been blessed with numerous fast flowing rivers that gush down from the Himalayas cutting through mountains and carving deep gorges to finally reach the vast plains where, slowing down they mender lazily towards India. Many of these rivers are ideal for rafting, and some are considered the best in the world by professional rafters from around the world. Rafting is also a fascinating means of discovering the inns of the country and its fascinating culture, as all the Rivers in Nepal originate high up in the Himalaya and snake their way downward through some of the most enchanting landscapes that include snow-covered mountains, terraced hillsides, sparkling waterfalls, lush green valleys and typical, charming little Nepali villages.

There is a range so rivers to select from depending on your taste and the passion for adventure. Till date the government has granted permission for rafting and kayaking in 16 different rivers which are graded on scale 1-5 accommodating everything from the ultimate adrenaline adventure to an action packed river ride to a simple and fun filled family holiday. Alternatively, if you prefer to combine your Nepal rafting experience with other adventure, there are always the possibilities to do so as some of the remote rivers in the country require undertaking a trekking trip before we can reach to the put in point from where we actually begin rafting. These short treks are also very meaningful Rafting Tours in Nepal.
