Rafting in Nepal

Nepal has over 1300 rivers and streams originated from the Himalayan glacier and their ferocity is simply unmatchable to the rest of the rivers in the world, making rivers of Nepal primarily one of the best destinations for white water rafting. Nepal Rivers are also regarded to be one of the best rivers in Asia and these rivers provide fun and exciting river rafting adventures.

In terms of the swiftness and obstacles encountered, the rivers of Nepal have been graded on an international scale, ranging from Class 1 to 6. Rivers with gentle moving waters, little current and mild waves fall under Class 1 whereas hazardously swift rivers, which are almost impossible by any means, are the rivers of Class-6. As long as people are in the good physical condition and aren’t scared of manoeuvring along the rapidly flowing waters, they should ideally be capable to raft up to Class-3 River. Class 3 Rivers are moderate running rivers with the swift current and narrow channel and paddling is modestly physical. Anyone who is acquainted with the water currents and has had the experience of rafting before can opt for Class 4 and 5 rivers. The Class 4 and 5 rivers have powerful water and constricted channels and paddling is challenging and at times strenuous.

Some of the popular rivers for rafting in Nepal are Trishuli River, Seti River, Bhotekosi River, Kali Gandaki River, Marshyangdi River, Sunkoshi River, Arun River, and Karnali River.
