Our longer rafting trips take you into some of Nepal’s most remote areas. Often long rafting/kayaking begin with short treks to the river. On these treks we employ local porters to carry our gear and supplies, so all you need to carry - your own personal belongings.
Many of our long trips finish close to some of our less easily accessible National Parks and Wildlife Reserves (the Karnali trip actually finishes in the Bardia National Park). So you may wish to combine your rafting trip with a safari adventure and go in search for tigers, bears and rhinos!

Arun River: Trekker's Delight (9 days)
This trip begins with 3 day trek through remote villages of Arun valley. Camping out in lush forests with views of the snowcapped Himalayan peaks. On Arun river, the powerful current drives your raft or kayak through 4 days of great white water action; at night you relax on fantastic beaches in dramatic valleys of Arun. In our opinion, the combination of trekking, spectacular scenery, great rapids and remote location make the Arun itself best river running.
Sun koshi River: The river of gold (7 to 9 days) depend on season.
Sun Koshi River Rafting (class 4 to 5) is famous in whitewater circles and with good reason: rafting on Sun Koshi river is one of the 10 most exciting white water rafting in the world, roaring past remote villages and green fertile mountains covered with forests and rice terraces, where local inhabitants can be seen in their daily rural activities. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience… particularly during high waters, when the rapids can swell to massive sizes, sometimes making the rafts completely disappear from sight!
