White Water Rafting is one of the most popular rivers for commercial Rafting in Nepal. Being is the most easily accessible from Kathmandu and Pokhara, this river is the most visited destination by the rafters. Trips are available from 1 day to 2 days. This river offers plenty of excitement with a short blast and huge rapids into the turbo fast current. Beautiful rural settlements on both sides of the river, eye-catching gorges, exhilarating rapids make this river perfect for both first-time and experienced rafters. It is the cheapest river in terms of the trip cost involved and the rafting trip can be combined with an extension to Chitwan or Pokhara.
From October to mid-December and March through early May are the best time for Trishuli river rafting. It is also possible to raft in winter, but you have to watch out for hypothermia. During the monsoon (June to September), the whitewater sections are dangerous, but gentler stretches are run-able.
