You don't need to be Einstein to figure that the Himalayan mountains create some of the worlds most powerful rivers, and consequently some of the best white water rafting experiences in the world.
Perhaps you've already seen that we incorporate rafting within many of our multi-activity adventure holidays as well as some of our family holidays too. These vary from day excursions to some fairly remote mini-expeditions.
For those looking for a dedicated rafting holiday in Nepal we've some suggested itineraries for you below. All our rafting expeditions are with a fully qualified, experienced guide. Wetsuits and safety equipment (life jacket and safety helmet) are provided, alongwith a safety kayaker too. Not only is the water wild, our expeditions are invariably a genuine wilderness experience too. Most of the time you'll be camping on the river bank, or close to the river and so we provide all the necessary camping gear and equipment (except sleeping bags and camping mats) along with a cook. All you really need to do is eat, sleep and paddle! On these expeditions what you need with you for the trip is carried by raft in dry bags. In fact for the majority of the time during the course of one of our rafting holidays you're entirely self-sufficient on what is being carried in the raft. Now that's what we call Himalayan expedition rafting!
Experience the challenges of the Trisuli, Karnali, Seti, Kali Gandaki & Sun Kosi Rivers. Getting wet is guaranteed.
The gradings for each of the rivers reflect the times when the waters are at their highest levels that would be considered as navigable. Indeed, during the monsoon season is an interesting time for rafting as the rivers are swollen by the monsoon rains and in full, raging torrent. Although sometimes too much water makes the rivers unnavigable and beyond dangerous.
8 Days - Grade: 3-4+
After a 2 day introduction on the Trisuli River, everything gets wilder as you take on the Kali Gandaki River that originates high up on the Tibetan Plateau and forms the worlds deepest gorge. Three days of exhilarating rafting follow, camping wild along the way. A true, spectacular wilderness rafting mini-expedition experience.
10 Days - Grade: 4-5
One of the top ten whitewater rafting rivers in the world and a genuine continuous expedition. The Sun Kosi becomes more powerful with progression. Wild camps along the way, changing landscapes and friendly locals all add to the experience. A 10km finale of 4+ rapids ensures this adventure ends on a high!
6 Days - Grade: 3-4
Enjoy the fun on the Trisuli, Nepals most popular rafting river before taking a mini-expedition journey down the Seti River and through this isolated river gorge with its jungle clad slopes. Camp wild on the banks of the river. Atmospheric, with thrills along the way and plenty calmer water paddling too.
11 Days - Grade: 4+/5
Probably the ultimate Himalayan rafting adventure. The remote, far flung Karnali has a fearsome reputation. In the far west of Nepal, this difficult to reach river and the true expedition nature make it the domain of only the serious & adventurous rafter. There's also the option of paying a visit to Bardia National Park.
