Karnali River Rafting
Overview

Rafting or Kayaking in Karnali is one of the best trips available in the World. This mightiest river originates from Mt. Kailash in Tibet and hence Karnali literally means ‘Holy water from the sacred mountain’. As Karnali River wedge through the Himalaya in a series of magnificent gorges and forests to tropical riverine forests, we come across Nepal’s Wildlife. The river is also rich in Himalayan aquatic life such as Golden Masheer and giant Catfish. This is Nepal's largest and longest river, flowing uninhibited through the least populated region of the country. For the eight days and 180 kilometers we won't see a single sign of the modern world making it Nepal’s finest multi day river rafting.

Outline Itinerary
Day 01: Arrive Kathmandu. We will meet and greet you at the airport and transfer you to the hotel.
Day 02: Drive to Surkhet.
Day 03: After breakfast we continue our drive to Karnali put in point at Dungeshwar (5 hrs). We will do short rafting trip after lunch to set up first night's camp by the bank of Karnali.
Day 04: The river gives the team, time to build. There are good rapids and water flow those allow learning errors. We still manage to get at least one great class IV rapid in.
Day 05: This is the type of day that people imagine when they think of Himalayan water. It is BIG and it is continuous. We enter into the Jungle Corridor. This is a narrowing jungle clad gorge and it is all ours.
Day 06: More of the same including the notorious GOD’S HOUSE rapid. Don't forget to take in the bird life which is equally as abundant as the lush vegetation. Camp and relax.
Day 07: It isn’t over yet! Keep paddling hard! You really are experiencing the best of the west on yet another day of great action and breath taking scenery.
Day 08: This is a holiday after all, so we have programmed a rest day so you can take time to enjoy your surroundings and relax on a great sandy beach.
Day 09-10: We see the rapids dying off as we come out of the gorge. We pass the confluence with the Seti river where the river broadens. Today and the next day and a half are a chance to enjoy your journey admiring the country and villages you pass. You will have seen the safety kayakers in action and will no doubt be inspired, so ask the guides for some supervised instruction, or take over the raft and learn about the river.
Day 11: Back to Kathmandu
Day 12: Depart Kathmandu
