Bheri White Water Rafting and Kayaking Expedition – 6 Days


  • 6 Days

  • Mar-June, Sep-Nov

  • II to IV

  • 140km

Bheri River, rising from the high Himalayas, is one of the biggest rivers for fishing in Nepal and is one of the easiest rivers for water adventures. This river being situated in the far western part of the country is said to have many mysteries that need to be explored. The 140 kilometers long river gets bigger at Ramnaghat as two tributaries(Sani Bheri and Thuli Bheri) combine with the river at that point. The put in point of this rafting trip is Devisthal and the take out point is Chisapani.

Bheri is said to be easier for rafting as the rapids of class 3 and 4 in the river aren’t as violent compared to other rafting rivers. A rafting trip to Bheri will give you an opportunity to explore the remote areas of the region, some unspoiled cultures of the locals and an enthralling view of the natural sceneries of Nepal and sometimes the wild animals in their natural habitat along with spending warm and cozy nights at the white sandy beaches along the river. This rafting expedition is a great excuse to get away from the polluted city for a week.
