Marshyangdi White Water Rafting and Kayaking – 3 Days
The 47 kilometer river, Marshyandi (locally known as the raging river of Nepal) is said to be the most magnificent class 5 rafting and kayaking river in the world. The river rises from the northern slopes of the Annapurna, flows east through the valley of Manang and joins the Trishuli river at Mungling. Unlike other high volume rivers like Karnali and Sun Koshi, the rapids of this river are technical and require a different approach. This river is one of the steepest rivers in Nepal combined with a captivating natural setting and a stunning view of Manaslu and Annapurna.
The best seasons to join this intense and extreme rafting trip are October to December. Recently opened for commercialized rafting, the Marshyangdi is one of the best rafting routes in Nepal with continuous rapids of class 4 and 5. The combination of a thrilling rafting experience and magnificent scenery, Marshyangdi rafting is the perfect option for something seeking an adventurous trip.
