One of the world's premier river rafting destinations
Perhaps unexpected, but Nepal is considered, by those in the know, as one of the prime white water rafting spots in the world!
"A very enjoyable trip down the river and camping under the stars"
Tribes directors, Amanda & Guy Marks, did the Trisuli overnight trip with their children, so if you want to chat about it, by all means call to talk to one of them.
What to expect
All the equipment is given to you, and you have a good team with you including a very experienced rafting guide, and a support team of cooks and helpers so that your lunch and camp and dinner are all organised for you.
Even for non-rafters this makes a lovely little adventurous addition to your Nepal holiday.
How to do it
Rafting trips can last anything from a day to 10 days, and can vary between a gentle river experience suitable for children and beginners to a full-on white water adventure with world-class rapids. The rafts used are inflatable rubber boats which can take up to 8 people and a river guide.
When to do it
There are 3 main rafting seasons in Nepal: spring (February to the end of May), summer (mid-June to the end of August) and autumn (September to mid-December). Rivers flow at their fastest after the annual monsoon rains (June to August).
Where to go
There are many rivers where you can go rafting in Nepal. We recommend a 2-day rafting trip on the Trisuli River, between Kathmandu and Chitwan.
