Karnali River Rafting


    Karnali is also known as the longest and biggest river of Nepal, emerges at Mt. Kailash, an holy mountain, and flows through the scenic flora and fauna. It features an easy one-day trekking from the nearest road access to the put in point. Along the journey, to encounter with the challenge of 3-5 class rapids is one pleasure and equally to experience the remote life through the dense of forest is another vitality of this trip. Just enough easier water to regroup and prepare for the next big challenge separates rapids like "Captivity", Flip and Stripe, Gods House. Towards the end of the trip the river gradient begins to ease as the Karnali leaves the mountains and flows out in to the Genetic plains of the Terai. The dense of forest thickens as the river broadens, and the pristine beaches become bigger and more beautiful.

    Day 03: sauli  camp on river bed until day 09 
    Day 10 - 11 Head to Badia jungle safari /Bus to Kathmandu

    Day 1: We meet at the Head office at 7AM with your personal gears. This is a long road suffer so be prepared with water, tit bit etc. we travel to the far west and arrive in Surkhet very late. Long journey and you are still exited but need to get on bed for next morning early wake up.

    Day 2: After breakfast, we will take a truck as far the road goes until about Lunch time. After lunch, we walk all afternoon to Sauli, the put-in point. A great walk, which highlight just how "out there'' you really are. You pass the local villages and spectacular scenery, finally we will arrive the river and starting point and overnight there.

    Day 3: The River gives the team time to build and there is enough challenging rapids and Water flow to allow for learning errors. We still manage to get at least one great class IV rapid in. We camp and get excited about tomorrow.

    Day 4: This is the type of day that people imagine when they think of Himalayan water. It is BIG and it is continuous. We enter into the jungle corridor. This is a narrowing jungle clad gorge and it is all ours. The team building is put into full practice and when your guide shouts "all forward" he really means it! Enjoy the ride all day and camp in this sensational setting.  

    Day 5: More of the same including the notorious GOD'S HOUSE rapids. Don't forget to take in the bird life, which is equally as abundant as lush vegetation. Camp and relax.
