The river has engraved some truly impressive ravine in its lower part as it cuts its way through the 2000 meter high Mahavarat Range. These ravines also the rout flowed by the main Prithivi Highway and the road diesel trucks undoubtedly detract from the River itself. The opposite side of the road is relatively wild and you should also see some wildlife with a profusion of colorful bird including eagles and vultures.
For many people this river represents the ideal compromise rafting trip as it gives the right length of time, exhilarating rapid, yet not too difficult and easily accessible from Kathmandu. Certainly, if you are looking for more of a ‘wilderness’ experience unsullied beaches, no other rafting groups, and un-spoilt scenery then you should consider one of the other rivers.
The rapid on the Trisuli are mainly big, bouncy and relatively safe ‘flips’ (where the raft capsizes) or other accidents are rare in normal water condition and if you wish it is possible to walk around the few difficult rapid. As the highway follows the river you can easily come back to Kathmandu in few hours after completion of the trip.
We do offer a trip of 1-3 days, starting at Baireni and taking out at, or before Narayanghat. This gives you a full and satisfying experience –you run all the major rapids and watch the river grow as its tributaries join, marvel as it cuts its way through impressive gorges, then leave it when it spreads out over the great plain of the Ganges.
Day 1 – Soon after delicious breakfast at the hotel in Kathmandu, you will be driven for 3-4 hrs to the raft put-in point at Charaundi. Under the guidance of a river guide, you venture into a river trip up to Kurintar for about 4 hours with a short lunch break. Eventually, you camp near the river bank at a superb location.
Day 2 – On this day, you resume your rafting trip along Trishuli River till you arrive at Simalar. After reaching Simaltar, you conclude your river trip and make camping arrangement for overnight stay.
Day 3 – Guided by the call of the nature you continue your river trip. After having rafted for about 3-4 hrs, you reach the climax of the trip. At this point, you have a choice to either return to Kathmandu, Royal Chitwan National Park or Pokhara.
