Rafting Trishuli River

The name of this river is after a legend that says, high in the Himalaya at Gosainkund the god Shiva drove his trident into the ground to create three springs –the source of the river and hence its name Trisuli.

 The river has carved some truly impressive gorges in its lower part as it cut its way through the 2000 meter high Mahavarat Range. These gorges are also the route flowed by the main Prithivi Highway and the road diesel trucks undoubtedly detract from the River itself. The opposite side to the road is relatively wild and you should see some wildlife, a profusion of colorful bird, including eagles and vultures.

For many people this river represents the ideal compromise rafting trip: just the right length of time, exhilarating rapid, but not too difficult, easily accessible from Kathmandu. Certainly if you’re looking for more of a ‘wilderness’ experience unsullied beaches, no other rafting groups, and un-spoilt scenery then you should consider one of the other river.

The rapids on Trisuli are mainly big, bouncy and relatively safe; ‘flips’ (where the raft capsizes) or other accidents are rare in normal water condition, and if you wish, it is possible to walk around the few difficult rapids.  Since the highway follows the river you can easily come back to Kathmandu in few hours after completion of the trip.

We offer a trip of 1-3 days, starting at Baireni and taking out at, or before Narayanghat.  This gives you a full and satisfying experience –you run all the major rapids watch the river grow as its tributaries join, marvel as it cuts its way through impressive gorges, then leave it when it spreads out over the great plain of the Ganges.
