Karnali River Expedition – 10 days

Karnali White Water Rafting and Kayaking Expedition – 10 Days

180 kilometers long Karnali River springs straight from Mount Kailash in Tibet and is one of the most preferred rafting destinations by both the guides and rafters as it offers an excellent white water thrilling roller coaster ride. The river flows into remote areas of immaculate jungle with abundant wildlife, birds and fish. The starting point of this rafting track is Dhungeshwor, which is around a 24 hour drive from Kathmandu; whereas the take out point is Chisapani (578 kilometers from Kathmandu).

The combination of some exquisite natural beauty and the magnificent white water canyon makes Karnali rafting one of the best trips available in Nepal. The best seasons to raft in Karnali are October to December and March to May. The 10 days river expedition is ideal for someone who is looking for a more different experience of Nepal with beautiful scenery and a great river action. And the main advantage of this rafting trip is that the take out point is situated ideally for people who want to visit Bardia National Park; and Karnali River itself is a great destination for fishing. Karnali rafting is one of the finest multi day rafting destinations.
