Discover A Rafting Vacation of A Lifetime
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.-Lonely Planet 2008.
Nepal is a favorite destination for white water 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 (Tarai), there is adventure unlimited. As the course of the river takes one from the Himalayan region all the way down to the hot humid plains of the tarai, a vast changing landscape unfolds before the beholder, unraveling the unmatched beauty of Nepal. The rivers of Nepal have their source in the high Himalaya where melting glaciers feed the ever flowing waters. Snow-fed lakes give rise to yet other rivers and some have their origins in the Tibetan plateau. They flow through forests, alpine meadows and the deepest gorges in the world to finally reach the plains from where they go on to merge with the Ganges in India.
