Trishuli Rafting

Trip Overview

Trishuli rafting is the most popular whitewater tour in Nepal. It is appropriate for all from the first time to experienced rafters. This rafting is a good opportunity to experience the pristine natural beauty, scenic valleys, impressive gorges, unpolluted beaches, exciting rapids, and easier sections.

Trishuli River originates from Gosainkunda, the Himalayan Lake northwest of Kathmandu. According to a legend, Lord Shiva created three springs by piercing his trident into the rocky mountain. Since these three springs are the sources of water for the river it is named after the Trishuli River.

The best season of Trishuli Rafting is from February to mid-June and September to January. July, and August is the monsoon period in Nepal. Due to high water volume and high rapids in monsoon, it becomes difficult to organize rafting trips.

In the river rafting grade (1 to 4+) Trishuli River grade is 3+ to 4. Trishuli River rafting is safe as long as you follow the rafting guide briefing. Rafting is safe for everyone above the age of 10. Because everyone must wear a rafting life jacket which allows people to float on the river.

We organize a Trishuli River rafting trip on group joining and a private basis both. Group Joining fixed departure trips are available almost every day in season. For the private trip, it needs a minimum group size of 5 pax and above.
