Trip Overview

Trishuli River is one of the most popular river rafting destination in Nepal which flows from the Himalaya at Gosainkunda. Trishuli river name came from ‘Trishula’ a weapon which is carried by Hindu God Shiva. Trishuli River Rafting/Kayaking is located just 3 to 3.5 hour drive west of Kathmandu.

Trishuli river can be easily accessible from Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan. Trishuli rafting can be done all around the year which is perfect for both experience as well as first-time rafters and safe for all age groups. We will experience popular rapids like Snail’s nose and lady’s delight while rafting the Trishuli river.

All year round, the rapids of Trishuli are straight forward, easily negotiated and well spaced out. The rapids will push our boat and makes us search for safety which is challenging, and fun. With kayak riders constantly following us and the presence of Guide in our raft, We wont have any problem if the boat overturns or if we fell in the water. We need to keep calm if we face these kinds of situation.Whether it is swimming in the river or cliff jumping we have plenty of time while rafting in Trishuli.

We will experience the sense of teamwork after we complete rafting. Trishuli river rafting is best way to travel from Kathmandu to Pokhara as rafting in Trishuli is done on the way to Pokhara which begins at Chaurandi and ends at Gaighat. It is a ride to remember with a combination of grade II+ and III+ rapids with some IV’ in the post monsoon season.

It offers us an opportunity to view the landscape, terraced rice fields, scenic valley, extraordinary river and spectacular mountains. This package starts and ends from Kathmandu. With your suggestions we can start from Pokhara and ends to Kathmandu.

Customer review

First time river Rafting
Alexander C. KruseCASep 08 - Sep 08, 2019
It was my first time river rafting and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The guides were very helpful and polite. Rafting is a must to do activity when you come to Nepal. Rafting challenges you at one time and other time provides a enjoyable experience. It was amazing. You will be given life jackets and trainers help in the river rafting. I would highly recommend to people coming to Nepal.
