The Karnali is the longest river of Nepal and Karnali River Rafting covers the low land trek with some of the most beautiful nature scenery of western part of Nepal. It is very remotely area and drive from Kathmandu to Nepalgunj and it takes about 12 hours and it takes about five hours drive to the trek starting point. The trek lasts for two day from Surkhet through the forest. The Rafting section takes about 7 days, which gives you plenty of time exploring the river, canyons, waterfall and aquatic lives. You will be able to see river crocodile, gharial and maybe the rare gangetic river dolphins.
We travel to the far west and arrive in Surkhet very late/early hours of the next morning; You are able to have a sleep here.
After breakfast, we will take a truck as far as the road goes until about lunch time [this all depends on availability be flexible]. After lunch we walk all afternoon to the put-in point at Sauli.
After having heavy breakfast at 8:00 a.m. we get ready for wild ride. This section of the River is terribly wild. The continue rapid makes rafter forget to breathe. Lunch will be served en-route and camping at 03:00 p.m.
This is the type of day that people imagine when they think of Himalayan water. It is big and continuous. We enter into the Jungle Corridor. This is a narrowing jungle clad gorge and it is all ours.
More of the same including the notorious GOD’S house rapid. Camp at the Seti Dovan and relax.
It isn’t over yet! Keep paddling hard! You really are experiencing the best of the west on yet another day of great action and breathe taking scenery and camping at Jamuna village
This is a holiday after all so we have programmed a rest day so you can take time to enjoy your surroundings and relax on a great sandy beach.
We see the rapids dying off as we come out of the gorge. We pass the confluence with the Seti River where the river broadens. Today, the next day and a half is a chance to enjoy your journey admiring the country and villages you pass.
This is the final day of river. We end this trip in the early afternoon at Chisopani Bridge & lunch is served there. You will catch night bus at about 1530hrs to get back to Kathmandu or you can enjoy in Bardia National Park, which is famous for bird watching
