White Water Rafting

Welcome to the Himalayan country of Nepal, the incredible staircase to the top of the world. Sandwiched between the vast Tibetan Himalayas to the north, India to the south, the Indian Himalayas to east and west, Nepal is packed with romantic Boudhanath landscapes, fascinating history, rich art and architecture, abundant wildlife, adventure and picturesque views of Mount Everest and the Himalayas. This is the land where Lord Buddha, the greatest apostle of world peace was born (Lumbini), the only place in the world where Hinduism and Buddhism co-exists, a country where ancient and modern culture meet. If you are keen for an exotic experience you’ll find it here.
Nepal is a river runner’s paradise no other country has such a choice of multi-day trips away from roads, in such magnificent mountain surroundings, with warm rivers, a semi-tropical climate, impressive geography, exotic cultures, wildlife and friendly welcoming people.
Forget the images of hard ‘expedition’ boating – yes, there are a few rivers like this - but Nepal is just an outstanding holiday destination for the average recreational kayaker or river runners. Most of the rivers in Nepal are class 2 to 4. Everyone we know has enjoyed his/her holiday in these Himalayan Rivers. Neither you have to be an experienced river runner nor expert kayakers; you can enjoy the Nepalese river as you are. You don’t need to bring any of your equipments with you but the most important thing that you have to bring is your adventurous state of mind. Values, especially time values, are different during your adventure trips and you do need to be more flexible and tolerant to enjoy your time here and avoid undue stress.
Rafting in Nepal
Rafting in Nepal is usually a ‘wilderness’ experience in that most rivers don’t have highway alongside them –but it’s a soft, tamed, wilderness with white beaches for camping, clean blue rivers, friendly locals. Incredibly inexpensive, Nepal is a peaceful democratic country where rafters and kayakers get a warm welcome as one of the best forms of ecotourism. We have many kinds of rafting trips from short to long and the important thing is to choose the right trips for you.
Note that it is not necessary to be able to swim, but swimmers are probably more relaxed, comfortable, and safer in this alien watery environment.

Why to go for rafting?
The rivers of Nepal take you away from the busy trekking routes and penetrate the heart of rural, road-less, un-spoilt Nepal.
Rafting offers an attractive alternative to trekking, something to note if you don’t enjoy walking. It also complements trekking, in that you see the country from a different viewpoint like locality, custom and culture with the traditional way of life style.
Rafting ‘leaves no footprints’, has minimal ecological effect, and if you wish, the exhilaration of running white water.
There can be few better ways of viewing wildlife, then from a boat.

White water or flat water?
Rafting has this image of crashing through horrendous rapids and monstrous waves, and yes at the time of high flow, in the monsoon, this may be justified but at most flows there are many class 3 and class 4 rivers of moderate difficulty and also many rivers of class 2 where you can float along admiring the scenery and running a few very small rapids. Rafting in Nepal is a superb experience in it’s own right- the thrill of running white water rapids is the cream on the cake for those who enjoy it!

Many people are naturally a little bit fearful if they haven’t been on white water before, but after the first rapid ‘hit’ – as long as people are physically fit and not scared of water they can safely go on water of class 2 to 3. Remember that we grade a river on the hardest section – most rivers have days of easier water and long stretches in between the rapid in which to relax. For more difficult and exciting class 4 rivers people should be active, confident in water and preferably have some previous rafting experience.
