White Water Rafting on the Trisuli River!

By 5 years ago
Categories Pokhara

TRISULI – Nepal’s Most Popular Rafting River

2 Days/overnight at Trisuli Centre
River Distance:  40kms
Grade (high water): III-IV
Just above The Trisuli Centre is the confluence of Budhi Gandaki with Trisuli and the seasonal variations of their combined water volume decides which section of The Trisuli (above or below the confluence) a One Day trip is to raft.  Monsoon and post Monsoon (Jul-Oct) the upper section is usually ‘run’ and the lower section from Nov-Jun.

Big bouncy waves, hefty holes, and tricky chutes all go towards making an exhilarating ride to remember with a combination of Grade II+ and III+ rapids with some IV’s in the post-monsoon season….rapids such as ‘Snell’s Nose’, ‘Teen Devi’, ‘Ladies Delight’, ‘Upset’ and the aptly named ‘Surprise’ rapid.

This fun river and its green valley are just 2½ hours from Kathmandu.  Our overnight is at The Trisuli Centre tented camp at Big Fig Beach, certainly the choicest spot….Bar-B-Que, candle light and camaraderie.  The following day rafting continues until lunch, before onward transport to Bandipur, Pokhara, Chitwan or Kathmandu.
