Introduction To Trishuli River Kayaking In Nepal

Most visitors travel to Trisuli River Kayaking to enjoy exciting activities and to discover Nepal’s rustic life after exploring the traditional culture and modern life of Kathmandu valley.

Some of the best whitewater rafting in the world can be found in Nepal. Trishuli is Nepal’s most popular river for short rafting trips, maybe because it is so easily accessible from Kathmandu and requires no prior rafting experience.

Trishuli is ideal for families and first-time rafters. Twin Rocks (Class 3+), Ladies’ Delight (Class 3+), Upset First (Class 3+), Surprise (Class 4-), and Butterfly are the most well-known rapids (Class 3).

You can also go swimming or cliff jumping in Trishuli’s waters; we’ll point you in the right direction.

The Trishuli River travels from Gosainkunda Lake via the Mahabharat Range to Devghat, where it meets the Narayani River. You will be surrounded by gorgeous highlands and attractive Nepali villages during your adventure.

Our outstanding kayaking and rafting staff is certified by the International Rafting Federation (IRF) and is a White-Water Rescue Technician (WRT). Our expert guides are among the most talented and experienced guides in the Nepalese rafting and kayaking industry.

Best season

One of the wonderful things about the Trisuli river is that it is always a fun ride no matter what time of year it is. Whether it’s during the monsoon, when the river is twice its normal size, or during the winter, when the river becomes more technical, you’ll always have a terrific time on the Trisuli.

Experience required

Because of the river’s ‘pool drop’ character, no prior expertise is required. It’s ideal for beginners who want to get out and explore Nepal by the river. Perfect for families, friends, or even expert paddlers wishing to warm up before hitting some of the Himalayan rivers.

Accessing this river

This is one of Nepal’s most accessible rivers, making it one of the most popular (especially on Saturdays when you get the Nepali crowd coming down to enjoy the river). Pokhara is only a three-hour drive from Kathmandu on the major route. Tourist buses pass by here every day, making getting to and from the river a breeze.

Accommodation & meals

There are numerous possibilities if you decide to extend your day journey into an overnight adventure. Riverside camps are being established by an increasing number of rafting companies.

This offers up the possibility of going canyoning, kayaking, or hiking for the day. Riverside Springs has a choice of lodging alternatives if you’re seeking something a little more upscale.

At 6.30 a.m., you will leave Kathmandu (alternative transportation arrangements can be made from Pokhara or Chitwan if necessary). Our put-in point is only a 3-hour drive away. Depending on the season, we'll begin at a different location (for example, in the monsoon, we will run double the distance than in other months).

Our usual starting point is Chauraudi, a small village in the state of Tamil Nadu. While your guides prepare things for the expedition, you'll be handed a cup of Nepali tea. After that, you'll be handed your gear (helmet, life jacket, and paddle) and escorted down to the beach for a thorough safety briefing, during which you'll be told what to anticipate for the day. Then it's off for four hours of big, bouncing rapids with great swimming holes, breathtaking scenery, and cliff jumps.

We take a break halfway down the beach for a light meal of salad, bread, and spaghetti. Then we're off again: the next stretch of water has eleven major rapids.

You can change into dry clothes once we arrive at our take-out location (usually Kuring Ghat). After that, you can choose to spend the night in our riverside camp or continue on to Kathmandu, Chitwan, or Pokhara.

We will tour you around our camp, offer you a wonderful cup of tea, and lead you to your tent if you desire to stay overnight. Dinner will be provided at 7 p.m., and you'll spend the evening under the stars, around a crackling campfire, with other guests and our guides.

The next morning, you can either board the bus to your next destination, go rafting again, try our canyoning, kayaking, or go on a day hike in one of our nearby communities.

Is it necessary to hire Guides/trekking agency for Annapurna Base Camp trekking?

5/5 - (2 votes)

Not really. It depends on you. If you want, ABC trekking can be done independently. You could hire a guide and a porter by yourself instead of going through an agency or not hire a guide at all. Although, not having a guide can be a little problematic during off season.

It really depends on you. Is it your first time in Nepal? How confident are you of being able to find your way around? How pressed on time are you? If you go through an agency, it will be costlier but everything will be planned. You will only have to come, trek and return.

For Annapurna region, pay for guides range from $20 to $30 per day and porters take $15 to $25 per day.
