Rafting in Nepal
One of nature's most powerful and fascinating forces is the rivers of Nepal. One can almost hear the gurgle, the rumbling thunder as it rises, and the laughter as it falls. The soaring rivers of Nepal extend abundant sources of whitewater, a challenge for paddlers. Steep descents, fast-flowing rapids, spectacular scenery, an amazing variety of flora and fauna provide an outstanding river journey for enthusiastic paddlers. River journeys range from one-day short-cut excursions to 11-day long way expeditions. Each offers incredibly unique knowledge and engenders a lifetime record.
