The Trishuli river rafting , though adventurous, is considered safe for families, friends and first-time rafters mainly because of its rapids from class 1 to 3.The rafting begins from Charaudi and continues down to Gaighat. It is generally a one-day trip, but you can extend it to two days by choosing to spend a night in the camp listening to the roaring songs of the Trishuli river, while enjoying local dances and musicians. Originated from the Langtang Himal, the river flows through impressive steep gorges.
On your rafting on Trishuli, you will encounter straightforward, easily negotiated and well spaced-out rapids. After the finish line of high rapids, the river becomes flatter, allowing you to enjoy swimming or lying on the sandy bank. You can go cliff jumping ,too, in the upper part of Trishuli. The river is surrounded by beautiful natural scenes and calm environment. It has increased rapids in the monsoon, which is the best time for more adventure seeking rafters. Nevertheless , you do not need to wait for the monsoon for higher rapids because you are sure to encounter a narrow and steep Trishuli gorge where the rapids accelerate. The Trishuli rafting is open all the year round.
You will find organized teams in Pokhara and Kathmandu that guide you throughout your trip with services such as certified raft guides with proficient English, French, German, Spanish, Hindi and other languages; ISO/CE certified rafting equipment, lunch, ground transportation, river permit, etc.
