A country with Nepal’s mountainous terrain means big rivers. Many of them are quite powerful, especially in the rainy season, so some are very technically demanding. However, there are a few that are suitable for rafting for everyone. A refreshing option to do on the journey between Kathmandu and Pokhara, or directly from Kathmandu.
Duration. 1 or 2 days
Minimum group size 4 persons
Starting in Kathmandu ending in Pokhara (optional starting and ending in the same city)
Any time of the year, although river conditions vary
Transport by private vehicle
Tented accommodation (if overnight)
Much of the route between Kathmandu and Pokhara runs alongside the Trishuli River, a large, wide river with plenty of water, perfect for a day or two of rafting.
While it can also be a one-day option, ideal for a break on the way from Kathmandu to Pokhara, you can sleep in a comfortable camp beside the river, making it a very interesting and fun two-day rafting activity. It remains an ideal extension to do on the way from Kathmandu to Pokhara, to Bandipur, or even to Chitwan.
The Trishuli River is not very technical, so it is suitable for all ages and highly recommended for family groups. However, it does carry a lot of water, so a kayak accompanies the boat at all time as an extra safety measure.
We leave Kathmandu towards Pokhara until we reach our rafting starting point in about three to four hours. The first day includes lunch and dinner by the river and you sleep in a tent with a mattress, pillow and sleeping bag provided. It may be a good idea to bring a light cotton or silk sleeping bag.
The next day is the second day of rafting and after lunch, you will continue your journey to Pokhara, Bandipur or Chitwan to continue with your travel plan.
