White Milky Water Rafting
Rafting the rivers of Nepal is an ideal way of escaping the trappings of everyday life. Nepal’s rivers are second to none, originating from the glaciers of the worlds highest mountains, they plunge through towering gorges and forested foothills before the more tranquil journey along the Ganges plain on their way to the Bay of Bengal. Rivers here are regarded as goddesses, and are included in a number of Hindu and Buddhist religious rituals. You may be lucky to witness a river festival during your trip.
There is plenty of white water to keep the adrenaline gushing through your system, with more tranquil stretches in between allowing time to reflect on the abundance of natural beauty. Camping overnight on the banks of the river in tents for a couple often around a campfire made from driftwood under starlit skies is a romantic emotion at its zenith. All necessary equipment is provided and each rafting team is led by one of our experienced Nepali leaders. Rafting experience is not necessary unless stated in the itinerary.
Nepalese rivers can be grouped into three categories on the basis of their origin:
1. Antecedent to the Himalayas
2. Below the Mahabharat
3. Below the Churia range
The major river systems get their source from: the Koshi, the Karnali and the Gandaki—which belong to the first group. Rivers originating from the Mahabharat Range, those which cut through the Churia hills, come under the second group. These include the Karnali, Bagmati, and Kamala. The third groups of rivers originate from the southern face of the Churia hills. Our guides are super rafters who enjoy their jobs & can negotiate some of the wildest rapids on the toughest rivers. Rafting is always compulsory for most backpackers looking for wild excitement. For more details contact us at…firstname.lastname@example.org
