Trisuli River Rafting
Trisuli river is most popular rafting river with impressive gorges, exciting rapids, some easier sections, and easily accessible from Kathmandu and Pokhara. This river is recommended for the first time rafters.

The river has carved some very impressive gorges in its lower part as it cut its way through the 2000m high Mahabharat Range. These gorges are also the route followed the Prithivi Highway, the first national highway that linked Kathmandu to India. The opposite side to the road is relatively wild and uninhabitated and pleanty of wildlife is seen here, a profusion of colourful birds, including eagles and vultures - especially true if continue on down into Chitwan National Park where you may see crocodiles and rhino by the riverside.
