Nepal isn’t merely a trekker’s heaven it’s also a heaven for whitewater rafting fans.
If you stop and consider it for an instant this shouldn’t come as much surprise when you look these up. Sooner or later the snow out of the lesser elevations of Nepal’s grand hills must melt when it does it must flow somewhere. Eons of water have carved deep canyons and valleys.
A combination of magnificent mountain views, twisting canyons and white-sand beaches set the scene for excursions down Nepal’s rivers. The rivers themselves operate from mild and twisting to racing and roaring with rapids all of the way up to class V. Two of the finest of Nepal’s whitewater rafting rivers comprise the Trisuli, the Bhote Koshi, Kali Gandaki and the Marshyangdi.
As a result of the easy accessibility from Katmandu and Pokhara, beautiful valleys and deep gorges, along with a mix of thrilling rapids and warmer segments the Trisuli is Nepal’s hottest river. Nepal’s rafting is no more undiscovered and the prevalence of this Trisuli means that the river could be crowded and the beaches nicely utilized throughout the height of holidays. The trick would be to conduct it through monsoon season. You’re going to be wet anyway so what’s a “small” rain. The ironic thing is that if the river is at its finest, wild and high, many rafters are nowhere available. Just take the plunge and perform the Trisuli through monsoon season, it’ll undoubtedly be the most exciting thing that you can do in Nepal.
The Bhote Koshi:
Rises from top Tibet, which can be known as Bhot, and tumbles into Nepal through breathtaking valleys. The fourteenth-highest mountain on the planet is Shishapangma and it’s from Shishapangma’s glaciers that the water that carves steep flows into streams that for a 46km run, which finishes in the Lamosunga Dam. At high flows the rapids is class IV-V, with V being the top end of this scale. At lower levels the rapids still provide pleasure class III rapids.
