Rafting in Different River of Nepal
Nepal is blessed with some of the wildest and most spectacular rivers in the world. The combination of beautiful mountain scenery, exhilarating white water rapids, warm water, and fascinating cultural opportunities make Nepal one of the premier places to go white water rafting. Eco Trek offers fun and exciting rafting trips on the best rivers in Nepal. The best time for rafting in Nepal is usually September to early December and March to June. This is when the weather is best and the water is the warmest.
Eco Trek runs two different types of river trips depending on how long you want your trip to be and what river you want to raft. The first type is a day trip on the river. We provide transportation to and from the river as well as a full day of rafting. This is the perfect trip for anyone who wants to get a feel for white water rafting or doesn’t have time for an overnight trip. Generally we run most of our day trips on the Trishuli and Bhote Koshi rivers.
Our other type of trip consists of several days of rafting while camping overnight next to the river. This gives you plenty of time to swim and relax on some of the white sand beaches on the river. We have porters to set up camp and a personal cook who will prepare safe and tasty meals. Camping trips require a minimum of 6 to 8 clients in a group it helps if you can find others who are interested in rafting. During the season we have many trips leaving several times a week so it isn’t hard to find a group. And like every Eco-Trek trip, we want to provide you with the vacation of a lifetime so tell us what you want. We can combine rafting with trekking or jungle adventures or both if you wish.
Rivers are rated for their difficulty on a scale of class 1 – 6.
A class 1 river has a slower moving current with little or no obstacles.
Class 2 & 3 rivers generally are fast moving with some obstacles and smaller to medium size rapids.
Class 4 rivers have long, continuous sections of white water and large waves which requires strong paddling and good teamwork in the boat.
Class 5 rivers have powerful prolonged sections of rapids and big holes, which requires very strong paddling and preferably some previous rafting experience.
Class 6 is considered to be almost impossible to run.
