Nepal is famed for the world’s best rivers for white-water adventures. Second to mountain expeditions, river rafting provides the ultimate adrenaline rush. The journey is centered on torrential rivers on inflatable rafts. People who choose not to engage in rigorous adventures like mountaineering and trekking opt for river rafting on the scenic Himalayan rivers to satisfy their thirst for adventure. This is comparatively cheaper and easier. Sitting on a raft you can observe the village life, vibrant and diverse flora and fauna and stunning mountain landscape.

There are very few countries in the world that can offer such rafting experiences combined with spectacular rural scenery, rushing torrents, tropical forests and with stunning mountain vistas as the backdrop. Such combinations make Nepal the ultimate in river rafting. No other country on the planet has rivers with warm water, subtropical climate and wide sandy beaches that provide excellent camping sites on the banks. A full day trip lasts for approximately 5 hours. This gives one ample time for photography, changing wet clothes, intermingling with locals, toilet visits, etc.

The rafting adventures are graded on a scale of one to six with one being likened to a swimming pool and six highly challenging professional runs or deemed nearly impossible to negotiate. A reasonably fit individual who has no fear of water can easily embark on such rafting trips graded 1 to 3.
