Karnali River Rafting

Karnali River rafting is a finest trip of rafting on Nepal's longest and largest river Karnali which has wild rapids suitable for rafting, kayaking, fishing, and wildlife safari. The bottom section of Karnali River is definitely a life up to that name- the area that it flows through is wild and relatively unpopulated. Some of the most pristine jungle scenery in Nepal, an abundant wildlife can be seen through Karnali River rafting. In terms of volume it is comparable to Sunkoshi but Karnali is more constrained by its canyon walls giving bigger more continuous and serious rapids. Karnali River rafting starts with a flight from Kathmandu Airport to Nepalgunj within an hour. From there you can drive to Surkhet. You can enjoy interesting truck ride enjoying the forest, villages and spectacular sceneries. Sauli is the rafting starting point, for the rafting in Karnali River. The river drops into imposing canyons filled with powerful big volume white water. Just enough easier water to regroup and prepare for the next big challenge separates rapids like 'captivity', 'flip and strip' and 'Gods house'. In this trip, you can enjoy full day jungle activities, Tharu cultural dance with B/BQ dinners as well as dolphin excursion. It is considered as one of the finest big volume rafting and kayaking trip in the world. A classic expedition and obviously the best combination trip short two days trekking, rafting, kayaking, fishing, wildlife safari, remoteness and unpopulated 'wild west'. Karnali River winds through some magnificent unspoiled scenery eventually emerging onto the plains and following through the Bardia National Park to join the Ganges.
