Trishuli River

Trishuli is Nepal's most popular rafting river. Easy access from Kathmandu and Pokhara, scenic valleys, impressive gorges, exhilarating white water rapids and easier sections as well as the right amount of time, all make it the perfect adventure trip for both first-timers and experienced rafters.
 Trisuli River is an excellent river for those looking for a short river trip, without the challenge of huge rapids, but with some really exciting rapids, with beautiful scenery and a relatively peaceful environment. During the monsoon months the intensity of the rapids increases and attracts a radically different set of rafters. But there are sections for rafting during the monsoon for those who are looking for simply exciting trip!

How to get there
Trisuli River Rafting is located just 3 to 3.5 hour drive west of Kathmandu, An excellent choice for short trips, or for those who are en route to Pokhara or Chitwan National Park.
The Trisuli can be rafted for 1 to 3 days, 15 - 60 km. Most people do the classic two day trip. The return journey to Kathmandu is 5 hours, to Pokhara is approximately 4 hours and to Chitwan is approximately 1 hour.
Florid Travel  arranges private or tourist bus transportation to the put-in point, usually Charaudi. (This may differ for longer/shorter trips and depends on the season). Transportation from the take-out point of Trisuli river trip is also arranged to whatever destination is next for you.
