Trishuli River 2 Days


The river Trishuli is one of the popular rivers for rafting and is ideal for beginners. There are numerous exciting rapids as the name of Snail`s nose, Teendevi, Malekhu rapid, Monkey rapid, Upset, Surprise, Monsoon, Cotton Pony, Ladies Delight, S-Bend, Highway, Monsoon and Pinball Rapid. This makes your fun more challenging during high flows with a good mixture of continuous rapids and pleasant calm water.

The river is open for rafters throughout the year, unlike other rivers where trips are not feasible during the monsoons. During the monsoon, Trishuli River promises a more challenging ride, with powerful rapids and whirlpools. Rafting on the Trishuli River is an excellent opportunity to observe the diversity of demography, landscapes, and cultural heritage and the flora and fauna. You can experience the thrills of white-water on the course of three days trip. The scenery of river Trishuli includes small gorges and a glimpse of the cable car leading to the famous Hindu Temple Manakamana.

Rafting down the Trishuli is also an dventuruous means of reaching Chitwan where rafters can then embark on another adventure of Safari in the Chitwan National Park. The trip usually starts from Charaudi and  Kuringhat is a small and picturesque village which  is an ending spot from where you can drive to Kathmandu or Royal Chitwan National Park or Pokhara to continue your adventure in the Himalayas. The put-in point for Trisuli River Rafting/Kayaking is located just 3 to 3.5 hour drive west of Kathmandu, making it an excellent choice for short trips, or for those who are in route to Pokhara or Chitwan National Park. Unraveling deep georges and rolling valleys, the river takes rafters through remarkable landscape before arriving in the plains(Terai). The exhilaration of tackling challenges rapids is followed by relaxing sections that allow time for admiring the surroundings.

Day 1:  We abscond Kathmandu and drive approximately 3 hrs. to Charaundi, our put-in point. After the crew assembles the raft, they will explain the safety equipment and proper procedures. During the day, we run a numbers of rapids, that rate to 2 to 3. All the rapids have been given Nepali and English names: our guide can relate the story behind each one.

We lunch on a beach remarkable for its unique sculptured boulders. Shortly after lunch we enter the Trishuli gorge. As the canyon narrows the walls becomes steep, densely, forested, the current accelerates and the rapids increase in the size and frequency. This is the time to hang on. After such a stimulating experience, it is humbling to see a Majhi (Fisherman) building his precarious traps in such turbulence. Our last rapid, Jholungepul, is named for an extensive suspension bridge. Here we often encounter an enthusiastic audience, they line the bridge excited to see us pass beneath. The geologic formation is tremendously interesting and not worthy. We camp at Kurintar on a sandy beach on the Trishuli beach. Every one is welcome to help our crew with camp chores. Once the tents are pitched a savoury dinner will be prepare over stoves.

Day 2: Our second day has a leisurely pace. After we continue down the Trishuli stopping to suit our interests. We spend the whole day within its forested canyon- one of the many in the Mahabharat range. We eat lunch beside the river and have time to explore bird watching, photograph and learn about the local people. The area is inhabited by Magars and Gurung farmers, noted for noted for their friendliness and charm and we have an opportunity for visiting a Vieira and we end our River trip and  drive back to Kathmandu/Pokhara/Chitwan.
