Nepal is second richest country in terms of water after Brazil and an obvious river-runners paradise. It offers some of the best conditions for rafting and kayaking. White water cascades from the mountains and, since some of the highest peaks in the world happen to be here, they give rise to some of the best rivers for rafting and Kayaking one could dream of. One need not necessarily be a professional or a thrill seeker to enjoy rafting or Kayaking in Nepal. The rivers of the country offer a wide range of possibilities.A day trip to Multi days expeditions can be arranged. A river journey is one of the most enjoyable and effective ways to experience the rural areas, observing different ways of life, culture and natural environments, and coming in to contact with village people the conventional traveler rarely gets to meet. These pleasures are complemented by an even greater thrill: running through powerful, fast-flowing rapids.
The Trishuli River is Nepal's most popular rafting & Kayaking river and is easily accessible from Kathmandu, Pokhara or Chitwan National Park . It meanders close to the highway and is a perfect alternative means of transportation to the Royal Chitwan National Park or even Pokhara. Despite its close proximity to the road, the Trishuli River still offers great scenery, impressive gorges and exciting rapids.

I've recently returned from Nepal having done the 2 day trip down the Trishuli River with Trekking Team Group. It was a perfect organized tour! We have spent two great days on the river with a lot of funny people from everywhere in the world. The river offers best white water adventure on great rapids within an amazing scenery. If you are also looking chilling time camping on beautifully sandy beaches and yummy food prepared for you at meal times this might be the best choice for you.

We did two days rafting trip on Trisuli with a night spent camping on the river bank. It was AMAZING! We booked the trip through Trekking Team Group and Bir gave us great deal!
The river was not too challenging, but definitely exciting (we're not experienced rafters) and the guides can make it as difficult as they like. They are incredibly skilled and really professional. Before you leave you get some basic rafting training and then the fun begins! All the guides are really trying their hardest to make the trip fun for everyone, so there's lots of joking and laughing going on.
Lunch, dinner, breakfast and snacks are all made very hygiene and eaten along the riverside, cooked from scratch, delicious and suitable for vegetarians (pancakes, popcorn, porridge, chips, eggs, rice, veggies, etc.) The camp was Million star hotel, is really basic but really fun to sleep in and of course there's a campfire in the evening.
We felt very well taken care of, thanks to Bir for great trip!

Me and my wife we must say, that the services of Trekking Team Group absolutely stunned us. We came to Nepal for free independent trekking but still needed some help, and the Trekking Team Group was recommended to us by our friends. They have booked flight tickets for us, prepared perfect rafting trip on the way to Pokhara and whenever we needed it, they were on the phone to helps us. All of it for a very reasonable price. For us, 100 % recommendation.

We recently heard from someone about how fun the rafting trip in Nepal as we had never rafted before. We decided to plan a trip as we hadn't spent much time in the area. My husband is a kayaker, he grew up river running, and he was even a boat guide in few countries. We debated whether to run the river ourselves or use a commercial company for our first trip. Since we only own an inflatable kayak and we'd have our six year old, we decided to go with a commercial trip this first time. We decided on Trekking Team Group. Our boat guide was experienced, easy to follow, and he entertained us on the trip. My husband was really impressed with the quality of the outfit. We were also surprised how much fun we had. It was a blast! We will definitely come back. Thank you TTG for a wonderful river trip!

Our family had a great time on our rafting day trip with Trekking Team Group. The entire trip consisted of serene moments, followed by shots of Class 2 & 3 rapids. The ride from Kathmandu to the river was scenic. The crew is very knowledgeable and charismatic. Follow their directions and lead, you will have a great and safe time. Take the time in between the rapids to look around at the scenery, it's beautiful! Our Guide Maila, was knowledgeable, very outgoing and such a nice guy. He knows the terrain and knew exactly the kind of thrill we were looking for and made it happen. A Big Thank You goes out to him for helping to make our family vacation, one to remember forever. We definitely recommend TTG for Rafting and Kayaking adventure.
This is ADVENTURE travel, and many of the trip destinations in this site are remote areas, within under developed countries, where events are less predictable than is usually the case in. The unexpected is the norm in these areas and, despite painstaking planning and organization, our adventure trips can never be taken for granted like regular trips. Many of the places that we visit do not have the same quality of emergency health and safety services that you are used to in the developed world. Internal flights can be canceled, road transport is generally uncomfortable and unreliable, and hotels often do not approach the standards of the West.
IF YOU ARE NOT PREPARED FOR THIS, YOU SHOULD NOT TRAVEL WITH US. This unpredictability also means that the itineraries that we put forward for each of our trips should be seen as statements of intent, rather than as contractual obligations. A variety of factors, including weather, transport difficulties and political instability, might dictate that we change any itinerary. The trip leader will make any changes that are necessary, after consultation with the group. Only rarely will such changes be significant, and we will always do everything within our powers to minimize the effects of the enforced changes. We cannot be held responsible for the results of changes or delays, irrespective of how they are caused.
