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

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.
