Marshyangdi River Rafting (1, 2 or 3)

Marshyangdi means "raging river" and there is no disputing this name! Draining off the Northern slopes of the Annapurnas, it is steep, powerful and not to be underestimates.

First opened to commercial rafting in 1996, the Marshyangdi shares some of the most exciting class 4-class 5 whitewater rapids in the world with some of the most spectacular mountain views in Nepal. This river demands 100% commitment from both crew and guide - it is not for the faing hearted!

Depending on road access at the time, your adventure may begin with 2-4 hours trekking to the put-in point at Bulbule, just beyond Beshishahar, well known as the starting point for trekking the Annapurna Circuit. This is reachable from Kathmandu in about 6-7 hours and from Pokhara in about 4 hours.

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

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