Trishuli river originates from Gosainkunda Lake and passes gently through Mahabharat Ranges and joins Narayani River at Devghat. Trishuli River is well suited for rafting and, in fact,
Trishuli is the most popular rafting river in Nepal, perhaps because it is very easily accessible from Kathmandu (1,400 m) and you do not need prior rafting experience. You can complete your rafting trip in a day and during the length of your trip, you will enjoy diverse Nepali landscapes, cultural heritage and demography.
Trishuli is perfectly suitable for first timers and families. The waters are not very challenging and you can loosen yourself and enjoy the scenery. The rapids that you will encounter are Twin Rocks (Class 3+), Ladies’ Delight (Class 3+), Upset first (Class 3+), Surprise (Class 4-), and Butterfly (Class 3). If weather permits, you can also get glimpses of cable cars that move to and from Manakamana Temple.

If you want, you may take a dip into the waters of Trishuli for swimming or cliff jumping, we will be suggesting you favorable spots. Our starting point will be at Charaudi (412 m) and end point at Kuringhat. Throughout the journey, you get to enjoy impressive gorges, beautiful valleys and typical Nepali villages.
