Karnali River Rafting
Karnali River is one of the most famous and finest big volume rafting and Kayaking trips in Nepal. It is spectacular remote,jungle –clad canyons, big white and abundant wildlife The Karnali is Nepal’s longest and largest river and with its tributaries it drains most of the far west of Nepal-the ‘wild west’ as many people call it, rising in the vicinity of Tibet’s holy Mount Kailash and glacier of Kanziroba Himal, other small peaks, as well as Rara lake
rapid encountered on this river is 1 to 5 class. This bottom section of the river definitely lives up to that name-the area that it flows through is wild and relatively unpopulated with some of the most pristine jungle scenery in Nepal abundant wildlife. From the frontier town of Surkhet there is a unique and lovely short trek through lowland Sal forest to the village of Saul in the seldom seen area of far West Nepal. From Sauliit’s 180 km to the nest road access at Chisopani, on the northern border of the Royal Bardia National Park. The river section takes nearly a week, offering plenty of time to explore some of the side canyons and waterfalls that comes in to the river valley. For 180 kilometers we won’t see a single sign of the modern world. It’s one of the last places in Nepal that you can see old growth forest and have a real chance of seeing Nepal’s wildlife. After end the rafting you might also be able to join Bardi wildlife tour or continue to Kathmandu.
