Trishuli is Nepal's most popular rafting river; easy access from Kathmandu and Pokhara, scenic valleys and impressive gorges, exhilarating rapids and easier sections as well as the right amount of time all make it the perfect trip for first-time or experienced rafters.
Unfortunately, the river's popularity means that it is crowded and the beaches are disturbed during the normal rafting season. However, there is some good news as well. During the monsoon months, the Trishuli changes character completely as huge runoffs makes the river swell and shear like an immense ribbon of churning ocean. When the river is running high and wild, there are hardly any rafters around. Rafting in the Trishuli is without doubt the most exciting thing you can do in Nepal during monsoon, and quite possibly one of the best two days of big water rafting trips offered anywhere in the world.
Merely a hop, skip and a jump away from Kathmandu or Pokhara, the Trishuli quenches your desire for a Nepalese whitewater adventure. It gets even bigger in the monsoon...
