Soon after breakfast, at about 7.30 am the bus leaves Kathmandu heading for Charaudi, the put-in point. After a 2 Â½ hour drive, Charaudi is reached where a crowd of friendly local people eagerly wait to watch the proceedings. The sight of foreigners all geared up for rafting fascinates them. The crew prepares the rafts, after which all head towards the river for Safety Talk and lessons on how to use paddles. On the first day a number of Class I to Class III rapids are encountered. Ratings are all given on the international rating scale. Two hours down the river is a beach with strange shaped boulders that resemble sculptures and this is the lunch spot. Outdoor lunch by the river is always an enchanting experience. It also gives everyone a break from paddling and time to take in the scenery Paddling down after lunch, a large gorge is encountered, the Trishuli gorge, which is narrow and the walls very steep causing the river to accelerate through it. Naturally the rapids here are more ferocious and also more frequent. This is an exciting section and time to hold on tight.
We finally come across a rapid named after a very old suspension bridge, Jhoolunge Pul. Looking up one can see a crowd of locals chattering with excitement as they watch the adventurous foreigners tackle the river on rubber boats. One thing to watch for along the riverside, are the geological formations that look intriguing. At the end of the day, it is time to stop and set up camp at Kuringhat, which is a very popular expatriates and locals as well. The crew gets busy pitching up tents and everyone is welcome to help in whatever chores need to get done. A feeling of togetherness is encouraged which adds a lot to the enjoyment of the trip. Dinner is prepared under gas fires and it is also the time to come together and share experiences. Camping out under the brilliant stars on the riverside with the roar of the river as a backdrop is an amazing experience. Campsite dinners can be quite entertaining when people share their personal tales. We do have our own Resort in Kurinighat called River Fun Beach Resort, where we will serve all meal and accommodation.
Comparatively, the second day starts at a leisurely pace. Soon after an early breakfast, it is time to move and the wonderful Kuringhat is left behind for yet more adventures on the river. There are numerous bouncy rapids along this stretch and the views are splendid. Enjoy the sights of emerald hillsides and golden paddy fields of the Nepalese countryside. One and a half hours down river is the confluence of the Trishuli and the rumbling Marsyangdi. Coming from west Nepal, the Marsyangdi is a very popular river for white water rafting. Being more technical than the Trishuli, it attracts a lot of avid rafters. The trip however, doesnâ€™t end here and rafting further down, a place called Tea Pot is reached. The exhilarating river run comes to an end here and guests either drive back to Kathmandu or head on down to Chitwan for a safari in the pristine jungles of the Chitwan National Park, Asiaâ€™s most well-preserved wildlife habitat.
Note : Rafting itinerary can be changed as per different situation.
