Trishuli River Rafting



Name of this river, Trishuli, followed from a famous pilgrimage place Gosaikunda which lies high in the Himalaya. High in the Himalaya at Gosainkund the god Shiva drove his trident into the rocky mountain to create three springs –the source of the river and hence its name Trishuli. The river has fixed some truly impressive gorges in its lower part as it cut its way through the 2000 meters high Mahavarat Range. 
For many people this river represents the ideal rafting trip just the right length of time, exciting rapid, but not too difficult, easily reachable from Kathmandu. Certainly Trishuli River rafting is the ideal trip if you are looking for more of a ‘wilderness’ experience unsullied beaches and un-spoilt scenery. The rapid on Trisuli are mainly big, bouncy and relatively safe; ‘flips’ (where the raft capsizes) or other accidents are rare in normal water condition, and if you wish, it is possible to walk around the few difficult rapid. Since the highway follows the river, you can easily come back to Kathmandu in few hours after completion of the Trishuli River rafting trip.
As we have many years professional experience in all Nepalese rivers, Moktan Adventure promises you to make your Trishuli River rafting a memorable trip of lifetime.
The following things you need to bring for Trishuli River rafting trip:
1. Water bottle
2. Sandal
3. Sun glasses
4. Extra pair of full sleeves shirts, t-shirts and trousers
5. River wears, shorts and swimming custom
6. Personal spending (for bottled drinks, tips etc)


We leave Kathmandu at 0700 Hours and drive approximately 3 hrs. to Charaundi, our put-in point. After the crew assembles the raft, they will explain the safety equipment and proper procedures.
During the day, we run a numbers of rapids, that rate to 2 to 3. All the rapids have been given Nepali and English names: Moktan Adventure guide can relate the story behind each one. We lunch on a beach remarkable for its unique sculptured boulders. Shortly after lunch, we enter the Trishuli gorge. As the canyon narrows the walls becomes steep, densely, forested, the current accelerates and the rapids increase in the size and frequency. This is the time to hang on. After such a stimulating experience, it is humbling to see a Majhi (Fisherman) building his precarious traps in such turbulence. Our last rapid, Jholungepul, named for an extensive suspension bridge. Here we often encounter an enthusiastic audience, they line the bridge excited to see us pass beneath. End of our River trip we drive back to either Kathmandu, Pokhara or Chitwan.
