    It is the most popular river for rafting in Nepal. It is popular because of its proximity to Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan Jungle. The road to Pokhara and Chitwan travel almost parallel to the river. It has several sections with easy and exciting rapids. The white water section is above Kuringhat; below that is mainly floating trip. Water level determines the point from where you start the raft; it can be either upstream or lower near Mugling. There are nice beaches along the route for camping. Rafting in the Trishuli River is best when it is combined with a safari in Chitwan or a tour to Pokhara or both.

    Travel: Starting points are on the road from Kathmandu to Chitwan. This is the major highway to the other parts of Nepal. From Mugling the road goes to Chitwan and Pokhara.

    About Rafting:

    It is an inflated rubber boat with several built-in compartments for safety.  It is very sturdy, rugged and made of a high-quality standard. On most day trip a maximum number of participants are limited to 12 in a boat.

    It is a fun and enjoyable trip:

    It is a fun and enjoyable trip: Whitewater rafting is an amazing and fun trip. Most rubber raft in Nepal is self paddle. The river guide gives instructions on when to paddle and which side of the raft should paddle depending upon the river current and rapids that the guide expected to negotiate. You will not be paddling furiously. Most of the time it is about 10 to minute minutes at the most. You are asked to paddle intermittently. You will be able to enjoy the scenic beauty of the river, dramatic landscape, canyons, wonderful waterfalls as float downstream.

    It is not dangerous:

    Rafting in the white water section of the river is not dangerous. The most dangerous moment is if the raft smashes rocks, if it overturns, or get into a swirling current. In such a condition, there are chances of getting injured. For safety reason, the raft has safety ropes around its rim. You just have to hold the rope tight. Besides that you have to wear a safety vest; it helps you float in case you are thrown overboard accidentally. You must wear a helmet to protect your head; in case if an accident happens it protects you from a head injury.  In the river occurrence of such accident are very rare. The trained and professional and river guide ensures the safety of the members on the raft. This is their prime concern. Rafting is much safer than driving on the road. However, all participants have to be careful and take precaution.

    Rafting is safe:

    The river is perfectly safe for non swimmer. The river guide ensures that he does not shoot heavy rapid for the safety of non-swimmer and other members on the trip who do not want to get into heavy rapids. Children below 10 years should not participate in any rafting. All participants must refrain from drinking alcoholic beverage during rafting except in the evening.

  • Day 01: Drive Kathmandu to Chauradi. Full day white rafting to Kuringtar (15 km). Overnight Camping

    Leave Kathmandu at 7 Am. Drive south-west of Kathmandu on Prithivi Highway to Pokhara. It is about two and a half hours drive to raft put-in point. As you come out of the Kathmandu valley at Nagdhunga you beautiful view of the western Himalayan range. You drive through a winding but a very scenic road. You stop at Charaudi – it is a raft put-in point. There you meet your rafting crew members. They take about 45 minutes to prepare the boat – inflate the rubber raft and pack rafting gears. There is a short briefing about the river, it’s current, and about the danger in case of an accident. They brief you about rowing instruction if you are not on oar fitted boat. You are given life jackets to wear during the boat ride. After that you are set to get into the water around 10.30 am.

    Rafting itself is an exciting trip. Major rapids in Trishuli are Ladies Delight, Upset, Monsoon, Surprise and Bijili. There are several smaller and medium-size rapids (graded 3 to 5+). These names are given by the rafter who navigated the river in the 1980s. In the first section from Chauradi, you float down for a little over an hour. You encounter a few exciting but calm rapids. The raft stops for picnic lunch on a nice, clean and sandy beach. After lunch, you encounter major rapids. These are exciting and fun. Depending upon how adventurous you are the river guide can plunge the boat in the holes that make the rapids.

    At about 4 pm the river guide stops his boat at Kuringhat or Kurintar. Depending upon the volume of water in the river you may stop earlier too. In the river, the sun goes down much earlier than in the hills. This makes the weather in the river much colder very soon. After you are ashore the camp staff serve you tea, coffee and cookies to make your body warm. You are assigned your tents; your baggage is brought to you. After a short rest, you may recreate on the beach or sit around the campfire set by the camp staffs. Dinner is served before dusk. The next day, after breakfast, leave camp at 10 am and travel back to Kathmandu.

    After breakfast we break the camp and pack all the gears. Leave camp at 10 am. Float down the river. You encounter more rapids – SRapid, Mugling part I and II, Double Decker, Tea Pot, Rocky II, Coffee pot, etc. You shoot these rapids and enter a narrow gorge and the canyons. There you find lush vegetation and rocks cliffs. They are on both sides of the river. If you like to rock jump and love nature then this stretch of the river is very enjoyable. Stop for a picnic lunch at the confluence of the Trishuli and Seti river – it is before Gaighat. The Seti river flows down from Pokhara. It makes a remarkable deep and narrow gorge.
