Rafting in Nepal

The Himalayan country of Nepal has varieties of white water choices, besides the Himalayan beautiful mountain ranges. We have a series of world class white water river trips, which we operate on a regular basis.

White water rafting is negotiating river rapids and obstacles in an inflatable rubber boat with a team of up to eight people and a river guide. Rivers are graded from easy to near-impossible according to their size, the intensity of their rapids and the difficulties that may affect rescue attempts.
