Karnali River Rafting (10 days - 9 nights)

Nepal's longest and largest river, the karnali springs forth from the base of Mt. Kailash in Tibet-the center of the universe for both Buddhist and Hindu. Flowing south into Nepal, it forms the major drainage system for the western districts before dropping off into dramatic canyons raging with big volume whitewater and eventually flosing into scarcely populated areas of pristine jungle abundant with wildlife. A trip on the Karnali is a classic expedition into Nepal's remote "Wild West" !

Exciting class 4 + rapids fill your first 4 days on the Karnali, followed by moderate whitewater and flat sections for the remainder of the journey. The second half of this expedition leads you near Bardia National Park where the jungle thickens, the river broadens and the beaches bigger and more beautiful.

All our raft guides and safety kayakers are trained to international standards in first aid, CPE and WRT. Our absolute best guides are ready to take you on the trip of a lifetime.

Advanced whitewater kayakers are infived to join our safety team and paddle along any of our scheduled rafting trips.
