Trip Over View

The Trishuli River tour is flexible and offers a wide range of adventure, from Class 2 to Class 4 rapids. You can tailor the trip to fit your schedule, as short as one day or as long as three days.

The early section of the Trishuli River trip contains class 2-3 rapids and then builds up steadily to class 4 rapids. The 'Teen Devil' is a good class 4 above Benighat. Below here the Trishuli River is class 3 as far as the Class 4 rapid, 'Upset'. After this the river winds its way down to Mugling at the confluence of the Marsyandi River.

Other options exist on the Trishuli for kayakers. A bus from Kathmandu to Betrawati or Trisuli bazaar can add another 15-20km of river to a trip. The advantage is that this section of the Trishuli River is away from the main road. In this section, the Trishuli River is predominantly class 2 and 3.

    Safety and security of all our clients is our prime concern. All our guides are licensed, trained in CPR, first aid and advanced river rescue techniques. All our equipment is world-class, up-to-date and carefully maintained. We use Avon self-bailing rafts. We always use safety kayakers on every trip. We prepare all food with the utmost attention to hygiene.

    Before your trip, you will be invited to an orientation meeting in order to meet the rest of your paddling team, the guide(s) and safety kayakers. This meeting is an opportunity if you need to ask any questions that you may have and also discuss any personal requirements, such as a special diet or medical conditions that could affect your time with us. Upon arrival in put-in point, there will again be a session of questions and answers. The captain will brief you about the day’s trip, river level, paddling tips and so on before you step into the boat.

    We have our own private transportation to take you to and from the river. When our own coach is not available then we provide a privately booked alternative.
