Nepal is a favorite destination for rafting enthusiasts and experienced river guides who travel the world looking for the best rivers to run. From the
fast flowing rivers tumbling down from the mountains to the slow moving waters of the plains (Terai), there is adventure unlimited.
Few rafting rivers in the world can match the thundering course of the rivers of Nepal originating from the snow meltdown of the Himalayan terrain. Nepal has a reputation for being one of the best places in the world for rafting and kayaking, with outstanding river journeys ranging from steep, adrenaline-charged mountain streams to classic big-volume wilderness expeditions.

One does not go rafting on his/her own but in a group along with the river guide and team work is of utmost importance. The river guide’s instructions must be taken seriously and each member of the group has an important part to play when paddling.
