River Rafting
Nepal is a land of Mountains and is of course the sources of gushing
rivers like Karnali, Bhotekoshi, Marshyangdi and so on & so forth.
Among many the Trishuli is one of Nepal's most popular rafting
rivers; from a day rafting point of view, for visitors with limited
time in hand. A day raft can be organized from one of its raft put in
point, on the way to Pokhara as well as to Chitwan. During the raft in
this River some of the rapids can be quite challenging, it is nothing
beyond a spirited well - instructed crew with a skilled guide at the
helm. Great care is taken to ensure safety of you. After a couple of
hours of rafting with smaller rapids the rafters are sure to drop in to
the first class 3- 4 rapids, affectionately known as Snell's Nose. As
you proceed further below monkey rapids a technical rapids called Teen
Devi is sure to come which is usually taken care of by the river guides
with changing levels after this, things settle down little bit,
finishing the day raft at twin rock. Rafting trips can vary from short
and invigorating white water runs, to sober trips lasting a number of
days.

White water rafting means bouncing down a river in an inflatable rubber
raft over crashing waves and swirling rapids for the excitement of a
lifetime. Since the entire country is like a steep incline, the rivers
that thunder down form the high Himalayas churn with extra ferocity to
provide some of the fastest and most challenging white waters of
melting glaciers, the agitated rivers crash down mountain gorges and
pass through hills, valleys and jungles on their way to the plains in
the south . As they flow between ever changing landscapes, they offer a
tableau of flora and fauna.

River running is thus a terrific way to enjoy Nepal's natural beauty
and observe its rural lifestyles - and from a perspective that may not
be available to a trekker. Rafting is also a cultural experience.
Rivers are held sacred in Nepal, and many religious ceremonies are
performed on their banks. River confluences are major pilgrimage sites
where devotees take holy dips.
