Marshyangdi River Rafting considered as one of the best white water journeys in the world; this 35 km rafting action on Marshyangdi river can take up to 2 days. The trip starts from ‘Bhulbhule’, which is about 5-6 hours drive from west of Kathmandu. The scenery explored during the trip is ever-changing ranging from mountains, dense forests, open valleys to small ethnic villages, making it extremely exciting and different. The river rages through narrow gorges and canyons and past stunning Annapurna Mountains.
The challenging grade 4 to 5- rapids begin on day one and are practically continuous to the take-out point, with steep, technical and thrilling rides through Himalayan scenery.
