The Karnali River Rafting

Rafting on the Karnali is considered as one of the best rafting trips in the world. Considered as Nepal’s Big and Mightiest River, it lies in the country’s Wild West, which has only been recently opened to tourism.

The river begins its life near to Tibet’s holy Mount Kailas. It carves its way through the Tibetan plateau and through the Himalaya into Nepal’s lush western forests. After the snow melt this river becomes a raging torrent with huge rapids which offers brilliant rafting and kayaking. A highlight is the 7km long gorge which is one long raging rapid that sucks you in one end and spits you out the other(in one piece). This is one of the Nepal’s must do rivers.

River Rafting Itinerary:
Day 01: This is a long bus journey, so be prepared with water etc. We travel to the far west and arrive in Surkhet very early hours of the morning. You are able have a sleep here.

Day 02: After breakfast, we will take a truck as far as the road goes until about lunch time (this all depends on availability…be flexible). After lunch we walk all afternoon to the put-in point at Sauli. A great walk which highlights just how “out there” you really are. You pass local villages and spectacular scenery, and then… you hear the river!

Day 03: The River gives the team time to build and there is enough challenging rapids and water flow to allow for learning errors. We still manage to get at least one great class IV rapid in. We camp and get excited about tomorrow.

Day 04: 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. The team building is put into full practice and when your guide shouts “all forward” he really means it! Enjoy the ride all day and camp in this sensational setting.

Day 05: 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 06: 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 breathe taking scenery.

Day 07: 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 08 and 09: 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. You see there is more to a rafting expedition than just rafters. Take out and transfer back to Kathmandu
